Red DogBook - 2016
"It's an insufferable, hot summer day in Little Egypt when Sheldon Cleaves and his son A. Evan darken Slim's doorstep. For a measly fee of $65, they hire Slim to find their Shelby Ann, a red-haired purebred pitbull, viewed more as family than dog. Desperate for funds to repair his air conditioner, Slim takes the case. It isn't long before Slim identifies the dognapper and is able to reunite Shelby Ann with her family. But when the dognapper is discovered with his head blown off, the local authorities suspect Slim. Set on clearing his name, Slim starts his own investigation, enlisting the help of his muscle-clad friend Jeep and his precocious daughter Anci, always game for sleuthing. But bloodhound-ing leads them down a treacherous path, right to the seedy underbelly of Little Egypt where dogfights are held literally underground and a white supremacist group called the White Dragons seem to be calling the shots. The second mystery in the Little Egypt series, Red Dog is as bitingly funny as it is violent, marking the emergence of a new, gritty voice in detective fiction"-- Provided by publisher.
