Pru Marlowe isn't your ordinary animal psychic. A tough girl on
the runfrom her own gift, Pru left the big city to return to her picturesque Berkshires hometown looking for a little peace. Too bad that her training as an animal behaviorist got her mixed up withLily, a rescue dog, and Charles, her person. Now Charles is dead, and Lily looks good for it. After all, Lily is a pitbull, a fighting-ring dropout, and way too traumatized to give Pru a clear picture of what she has witnessed. But Pru knows something about bad girls trying to cleanup, and, with a sense of justice strong enough to overcome her dislike of human society, she takes the case. Listening to the animals, Pru picks up clues--and learns there are secrets in the pretty little town that make murder look simple. Unable to tell anybody about her psychic abilities, uncertain at times about her own sanity,Pru comes to realize that if she clears Lily, she’ll likely become the prime suspect--or the next victim. While the only creatureshe can totally trust is her crotchety tabby Wallis, Pru’s gotto uncover the real killer--and find a way to live with her gift--before the real beasts in the town savage her and those she has come to love. The first in the Pru Marlowe “pet noir” series.
