KIRKUS REVIEW

 A tricky challenge for ex-army Captain John Cunningham (Doghouse, 1992, etc.), who, along with wife Beth and neighbor Isobel, runs dog-breeding and training kennels at Three Oaks Farm in the Scottish Highlands. Horace, a neighbor's dog, has been peppered with shot for no apparent reason, and John, entrusted with the dog's recovery, is asking questions of nearby farmers--among many others, Dan Sievewright and his womanizing brother George. Soon there are scurrilous accusations, floated in high places, of dog abuse at Three Oaks Farm; then the kennels are broken into, and a dog kidnapped. Beth is sure that someone wants the truth about Horace's incident kept under cover. Her persistence and intuitive detecting pay off--in an inspired last-minute confrontation. An often confusing puzzle neatly resolved; to be enjoyed most by lovers of dogs, especially those of the hunting kind.
