Sunny Southern California seems an unlikely place for a British widow to call home. But pet detective Delilah Doolittle is probably the least eccentric - if not the most civilized - of Surf City's resident population. With an astute Doberman Pinscher named Watson sniffing out clues, Delilah spends her time tracking down errant pets. And experience has taught her that the trail of a missing animal often leads to the worts of human nature.
Delilah Doolittle and the Puloined Pooch
Herbert Fitzherbert is missing. A champion German Shepherd, neither hide nor hair of him can be found. Searching the home of his imposing owner, Delilah makes a grisly discovery in the doghouse: a man's body with an electronic dog collar wrapped around his neck. Though Delilah assures the police that she'll focus on the canine caper, she soon finds that the warmer Herbert's trail gets, the closer she comes to collaring a killer.
