Pepe is a great character--vain, self-centered but fiercely loyal if not actually territorial, with a terrific nose of course, and loyal to a fault. And yes, he is a chihuahua. The private investigator who is his "owner" is, well, good at interior decorating. Recently dumped by her husband, out of work, down in the dumps, she finds Pepe and through him, an unlikely corpse, work, and even romance. I like the notes on interior design, food, and dress. The several antagonists, the helper friend, and Pepe are excellent characters. The Seattle scenes are well drawn and neat for Seattleites. Highly recommended.
