Review; Killing Trail by Margaret Mizushima
Description from GoodreadsWhen a young girl is found dead in the mountains outside Timber Creek, life-long resident Officer Mattie Cobb and her partner, K-9 police dog Robo, are assigned to the case that has rocked the small Colorado town.
With the help of Cole Walker, local veterinarian and a single father, Mattie and Robo must track down the truth before it claims another victim. But the more Mattie investigates, the more she realizes how many secrets her hometown holds. And the key may be Cole's daughter, who knows more than she's saying.
The murder was just the beginning, and if Mattie isn’t careful, she and Robo could be next. Suspenseful and smart, Killing Trail is an explosive debut that will have readers clamoring for more Mattie and Robo for years to come.
My Thoughts on the Book
It was so much fun reading this first book about Mattie and Robo. The plot is well written and engaging, and while reading, one hopes Mattie and Robo solves the case. The characters are well-written and fleshed out too, and I really enjoyed reading the interactions between Mattie and Robo, especially as I used to have a German Shepherd myself.
If one loves dogs and reading crime fiction, feel free to pick up this book.
