Kevin Kerney finds he has inherited 6400 acres. As he rides across to take it all in he finds a dog with a running shoe in his mouth... this leads him to a body, well part of a body anyway. Always thinking like a cop, Kerney decides to solve the crime and adopt the dog, which he calls, Shoe. Also a lady friend comes to visit. Sara Bannon, who is on leave from the armed service. They take time to explore their relationship while he is working the crime. Michael McGarrity gives us a suspenseful mystery of murder with all the crimes that lead to it.
There are enough characters and turns to keep you guessing until the end. I found it intense and suspenseful with a dash of romance. The audio is just right. It's read by a man who's voice fits Kevin Kerney's personality.
