Publishers Description: Oberon the Irish wolfhound is off to Portland to smell all the things with canine companions wolfhound Orlaith and Boston terrier Starbuck, and, of course, his human, ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan. The first complication is an unmistakable sign of sinister agendas afoot: a squirrel atop the train. But an even more ominous situation is in store when the trio plus Atticus stumble across a murder upon arrival at the station. They recognize Detective Gabriela Ibarra, who’s there to investigate. But they also recognize the body—or rather that the body is a doppelganger for Atticus himself.
Review: I usually don’t rate novellas higher than a 3, due to their truncated nature and limited world building. Squirrel is an exception to the rule. This was brilliantly rendered, cogent in it’s simplicity and entirely too funny.
A constantly witty and intriguing story as told from the perspective of a dog that will leave you wanting way, way more. 4 Woofs!
