(From the publisher):
"Distemper," the sequel to "Reliable Sources," picks up a year after the first mystery ends. Twentysomething journalist Alex Bernier is still trying to get over the death of her cop-reporter lover when she gets caught up in an even more dangerous case in her eccentric Upstate New York college town. Someone is killing women in Gabriel. They're found in the woods, naked and strangled but their dogs simply disappear. As Alex covers a series of stories ranging from serial murder to animal-rights zealotry, she's in danger of becoming the killer's next victim. Along the way, she clashes with ambitious newshounds, an anonymous stalker, and a big-city police detective a straight-laced guy with whom she just might take another stab at romance.
