Killing Trail: A Timber Creek K-9 Mystery by Margaret Mizushima 311 pages



This was an amazing debut novel!  I read it in one day.  Mattie Cobb is a Deputy Sheriff in the small community of Timber Creek, Colorado.  Her partner is K-9 police dog Robo.  The body of a young girl is found partially buried in the woods, guarded by her wounded Bernese mountain dog.  This is the loose thread that unravels a story of drug trafficking, murder, domestic violence and animal abuse in this quite rural community.  The first in a series, I look forward to reading the next.  Mattie and Robo are a refreshing duo and Margaret Mizushima's writing, while captivating, is not the stuff of nightmares.  Read this book, but do not expect to put it aside easily!
