Publisher Comments:

From former detective turned noted author and dog trainer, Carol Lea Benjamin, comes the fifth book in the critically-lauded Rachel Alexander mystery series, for the first time in mass market.

Sophie Gordon didn't let her epilepsy get in the way of her life as a teacher of deaf children. But without her trusty canine companion, an indispensable service dog named Blanche, she wouldn't be nearly as well-off. A service dog that can perform the difficult tasks that epilepsy requires--sensing when a seizure is about to occur and fetching life-saving medication--is extremely rare, so when a veterinarian's office promises that they can clone Blanche, Sophie jumps at the opportunity. Her former worries can now be put to rest, knowing that now she'll have a replacement for Blanche when the time comes.

But the puppy they provided didn't have what it takes to be a service dog, and when Sophie visits the vet to alert them of the problem, none of the staff is anywhere to be found--they've disappeared without a trace. To get to the bottom of this clone-by-night operation, Sophie hires P.I. Rachel Alexander and Dash, her pit bull partner. And two days after meeting with Rachel, Sophie is found dead, apparently of a seizure, but it didn't take Dash's sensitive nose to tell that something doesn't smell right, and that the missing vets definitely need further examination.

Synopsis:

Sophie Gordon's bull terrier, Blanche, is much more than a pet — she's a "service dog" who can sense when her epileptic mistress is on the verge of a seizure. So when offered the promise of an identical replacement when Blanche grow too old, Sophie agreed — never realizing she was signing onto a shocking conspiracy of deception, twisted science ... and murder.

Private investigator Rachel Alexander has been hired, along with her pit pull partner, Dash, to look into the mysterious cloning operation that seems to have vanished after addling Sophie Gordon with a "defective" puppy. But a possible scam becomes something much darker when a corpse turns up on the trail. And suddenly Rachel will need more protection than even loyal Dash can provide to save them both from an unseen and ruthlessly efficient killer.

Synopsis:

Private investigator Rachel Alexander and her loyal pit bull partner Dash look into a mysterious pet cloning operation that also dabbles in murder.
