Sometimes a book is just so painful to read, the sadness of whatever slice of life the author is portraying is just so overwhelming that even if the mystery itself is riveting and the ending a surprise and well done you are left feeling somewhat depressed. There is a reason I read cosies rather than true crime or hardcore mysteries...I have seen too much of real life and I am no longer interested in taking in the pain of some realities. That being said, there are three more Rachel and Dash books ...more

Okay, it wasn't the greatest PI story I've read -- but I read it with my wife and she is a dog lover and enjoyed this more than I did.

The protagonists actions in this book seem just a bit too unbelievable for me.

#6 of the Rachel/Dash series takes on the sad lives of transvestite prostitutes. This book had more weight than her previous books in this series because of the subject matter. At the same time, the titled dog, a long-haired dachshund, is as cute as the picture of him.
