The author has made it her business to understand federal and state anti-cruelty laws, and she brings it to the reader’s attention in this brilliant murder mystery novel.
You will find yourself rooting for the dogs and the delightful characters who are doing everything they can to protect them.
A very enjoyable read.
Diane Meier does a marvelous job of weaving her murder mystery into the stormy period when Delaware passed a law in 2010 to stop unnecessary euthanasia for dogs and cats. Those who were running the animal control shelters ignored the law No kill advocates waged a campaign to save the animals being killed. It's as much fun to watch the cop discover the murderer as it is to watch him explore the issue at the Animal Shelter.
The Killing Station is a police procedural with a fantasy element. The story concerns the murder of the manager of a high-kill animal shelter. The author’s intention was to provide a discussion of animal rescue issues within an entertaining context. There are dozens of animal rescue books on the market and most are well-intentioned but boring because they are all alike: animal in trouble, person who is unhappy, person rescues animal, happiness ensues. The author of The Killing Station deserves tons of credit for finding a unique and not-boring way to address animal rescue issues.
I don’t read police procedurals much so I can’t say how accurately that aspect of the story is presented, but it seemed credible. I loved the fantasy element; the ghosts were a charming surprise and added warmth to the story. The characters are believable. The writing is functional, lucid, and well-edited, though I did find one typo—which I think is pretty good! I’ve read books from mainline publishers with more typos than that.
People involved in animal rescue will relate both to the idea of murdering high-kill managers and to the discussions between the characters in the book about issues pertaining to animal rescue. I’ve been involved in dog rescue for about ten years and there were times while reading when I wanted to cheer out loud! There are some descriptions of harsh realities—small town shelters can be real hell-holes, and dog fighting is just plain evil—but the book is inspiring rather than depressing. While I think animal lovers are the primary audience, I also think any reader who is looking for entertainment with a serious theme will spend an enjoyable couple of hours with this book.
A murder occurred almost immediately upon his relocation to Rehoboth Beach. The investigation took him places he’d never imagined. The setting of the murder opened his eyes to laws that were being violated at no kill stations. Animal cruelty laws seemed to be more of a political statement than providing actual procedures for enforcement. Matt uncovered some bizarre activities at the shelter that lead to finding the true murderer of the director of the “No Kill Station.”
Matt had some decisions to make to be able to begin again in work and love. When would he say enough is enough?
This book was well written and the author had substantial knowledge about animal shelters. It was an easy read. It grabbed me from the first page and I didn’t put it down until the end. No Kill Station: Murder at Rehoboth Beach
I admire the author's determination and success at helping these unfortunate creatures...
Besides, I found the book an enjoyable and fun read ! I learned a lot about life in America's small towns such as Rehoboth Beach ...
I am now considering turning into a strict vegetarian ...
