I seem to be on a dog book kick right now, and it was interesting reading this book simultaneously with a Susan Conant book, as the plots are similar, with both featuring women very involved with dogs also acting as amateur sleuths with the assistance of their canine partners. However, unlike Conant's protagonist Holly Winter whose area of specialty is the dog show world, Lanier's Jo Beth Sidden trains bloodhounds especially for roles on police forces and the like and thus has actual crime-solvi ...more
I actually enjoy these books, which (I think) are published only in paperback. They are several notches above many hardbound mysteries coming out these days.

In this one, Jo Beth is asked to look into a 30-year-old child kidnapping and murder. The man who was sentenced for the crime has been released from prison on medical grounds and moved back to the area; he has mainained his innocence obstinately for 30 years.

Of course she figures out the knot at the center of this puzzle while at the same ti

I love loved this book and sweet Bobby Lee.

Very good puzzle to solve and Jo Beth and her Bloodhounds are up for the challenge.

I enjoy mysteries, I enjoy good stories that have excellent roles for dogs and their human handlers. This has both. Toss in a SOB ex-husband in the deep south, law enforcement and undue influence from the SOB's have a good foundation for several books.

I SO wish there were more books in this series.
It's been a few years since I've read Virginia Lanier. I loved her series and miss her work, since she passed away a few years ago. After a brief hiatus, it's good to be back to continue with the series. I'll be reading one more this year and finish up with the last two next year, though out of order. A good read for a mystery.
I still love this series; in this one Jo Beth is trying to solve a 30 year old murder case, and trudging through the Okefenokee Swamp in search of a mother and her baby, who may in the company of a kidnapper/murderer. The descriptions of the swamp, as well as the beloved Bloodhounds, are great.

Yet another fun read. This one finds our heroine tracking down a 30 year old mystery and meeting some fun characters who I hope to meet in the next book. Hank's still around and hoping.
read this series several years ago and really enjoyed it- the back story about the author is wonderful too- never wrote anything until she was over 60.
I really enjoyed the protagonist in this series, and even though I'm not a big dog lover, I found the bloodhound training to be fascinating.
Great south Georgia mystery. We'd all want one of those amazing Bloodhounds, if they didn't drool so much.
Still good, but it's getting a little farfetched that JoBeth is asked to investigate a crime.
Don't waste your time on this one!
