"Finally, a suspense novel that combines my two loves: a thrilling police procedural, assisted by two fabulous working dogs. A one-sit read that will make you happy you did." ―Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Look for Me
"A compelling mix of hard edges and easy charm - I loved this book.” ―Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author
It may be the Fourth of July weekend, but for retired soldier Mercy Carr and her Belgian Malinois Elvis, it’s just another walk in the beautiful remote Vermont wilderness—until the former bomb-sniffing dog alerts to explosives and they find a squalling baby abandoned near a shallow grave filled with what appear to be human bones.
U.S. Game Warden Troy Warner and his search-and rescue Newfoundland Susie Bear respond to Mercy’s 911 call, and the four must work together to track down a missing mother, solve a cold-case murder, and keep the citizens of Vermont safe on potentially the most incendiary Independence Day since the American Revolution.
A Borrowing of Bones is full of complex twists and real details about search-and-rescue dog training that Paula learned through the training of her own dog. With its canine sidekicks and procedural plot, this series is a must-have for mystery fans.
