From the internationally best-selling author of My Lovely Wife and He Started It comes a twisted, entertaining novella about a dog walker swept into a criminal investigation when her client winds up dead.
Shelby works as a dog walker in Northern California, and she’s just finished up her biweekly trip to the park with a husky named Pluto. When she brings him back to his house, she finds his owner—Todd Burke, a well-known local businessman and founder of an organic supplements company—dead on the bathroom floor. As a detective interviews Shelby, a medical examiner inspects the body, and more cops search Todd’s home, it becomes clear that the victim’s life was less picture-perfect than his clean-cut persona might lead you to believe.
Great short audible original!
Shelby is a dog walker. On this day, she is walking Pluto with other dogs as usual but what is different is that after their walk and while returning Pluto home, she makes a gruesome discovery.
Detective Grady is in charge of investigating the crime. She is the one who will follow the crumbs to find the murderer.
Sleeping Dogs Lie has two quite interesting female main characters. The dog walker, Shelby and Detective Grady.
The dual POVs gave me the chance to understand both characters.
The best thing was the reveal. I can’t say much because it will be a spoiler. I almost wish I could.
The narrators did a good job at keeping it entertaining. It was the perfect novella for my commute.
