During a Fourth of July barbecue attended by Connecticut's most prominent kennel club members, Barry Turk, a renowned poodle handler and notorious lady's man, is murdered in his driveway, and Melanie Travis must uncover the killer before she becomes the next victim

Blackwell North Amer
The dog days of summer have just begun, and Melanie Travis is looking forward to savoring each lazy afternoon. School's out, her son's at camp, even her rambunctious Standard Poodle is taking a break from the show ring. And where better to enjoy herself than at her Aunt Peg's Fourth of July barbecue attended by members of Connecticut's most elite kennel clubs? It sounds ideal, until an uninvited guest proves that even the laziest dog day of the year can suddenly turn vicious...
Melanie knew someone should have kept Barry Turk on a short leash. The star poodle handler and ladykiller had a habit of chicanery that bred contempt in the dog show circuit, particularly among its female members. But when Barry is shot dead in his own driveway, even Melanie is stunned at how unsporting the competition can get.
A pack of yelping pups saw it all, but it's the hysterical appeal of Alicia, Barry's latest lover, that convinces Melanie to investigate. Especially when the litter of suspects includes Barry's ruthless young assistant, her hot-tempered boyfriend, a Blue Ribbon judge with a grudge, and even Alicia herself. Each of them has reason to kill. And as it soon appears, reason to kill again...
Now, as Melanie digs for clues deep under Connecticut's well-groomed surface, she finds herself sniffing around in the killer's own backyard, and counts herself lucky to have the animal instincts to keep herself alive.
