In this taut mystery, insurance investigator TJ Flood unravels a dark secret when he attempts to look into a year-old boating accident that leaves the crew dead. Lindermuth's impressive pacing is supported by a mysterious female witness that no one can seem to locate, along with a blossoming--albeit strained--relationship between Flood and his romantic interest, Dee, a rising journalist who helps uncover the mystery. Although Dee seems childish at times, the personalities of the characters doesn ...more

"The Limping Dog" is a mystery filled with great suspense right to the conclusion of the story. Artist Gavin Cutter lives peacefully in a small, old fashioned New England seaside town where he happily paints and also restores antiques for his lady friend, Maria. Then one day as Cutter is walking along the beach, he sees a sailboat floundering, eventually wrecking itself against the store. Cutter and two men board the boat and find soup that's boiled away and the owner's wallet and wrist watch l ...more

An Artist looks out to sea as he works on his canvas and sees a woman with a dog trying to get the fishermen to help a sailing ship headed to the reefs. The ship crashes and all aboard are missing except the limping dog.

The book opens with an insurance investigator, T.J. Flood coming to investigate a year later. The artist, Gavin Cutter has taken in the dog who still limps and tells his tale to T.J. It looks like a simple payout, but, who is this woman and why is there no mention of her in the p

I enjoyed the tale - totally readable. The gripping prologue introduces the reader to the main protagonist, Gavin Cutter, an artist who stops painting to watch an old sailing ship, bent on self-destruction, sail apparently rudderless, onto a nearby reef.

Cutter, races across the dunes towards the ship. He is the first to board the stricken vessel, and is followed by a group of fishermen. The warm galley stove and burnt out soup pot both evoke eyrie thoughts of the ancient ship Mary Celeste as Cu

New England. A sailboat washes ashore. Gavin Cutter, a local artiest, rushes aboard to help. But the only living thing he finds is a limping dog. There is no discernible damage, and no obvious reason for the boat being abandoned. A strange-appearing woman who was walking by with her dog when the ship ran aground disappears. Who was she? No one can find her.
Gavin recuses the limping dog, and the mystery of the ship’s missing passengers goes unanswered.
Then an insurance investigator shows up, aski

I received The Limping Dog by J. R. Lindermuth for free through Goodreads First Reads. The Limping Dog is a fun, light, quick read mystery that draws you into the story from the beginning. The setting of the novel is a small costal isolated community where peace and tranquility are abundant. Then the mysterious abandonded ship appears and crashes against the shore. The only survivor to be found is a limping dog. Mr. Lindermuth has a clever plot and his characters are personable but have their ow ...more
