There was a lot of humor but I frankly had a little trouble following because of the expressions or language or something. It took a lot of concentration to catch the humor.

If you haven't read Hess, you've really missed a treat. Clever writing about the trials of raising a teenage hormonal factory, trying to make a living as a bookstore owner, and discovering murders.

This is one time where Hess's fabulous skills work against her. I just couldn't finish it. Joan Hess is a master of creating an image in the reader's mind of what the scene is. Unfortunately this story is about torturing animals, pit fights, etc. I just couldn't go any further with it after the second chapter.

From back of book:

Miss Emily Parchester's pampered bassets, Nick and Nora, have to be the most slobbery pets in Farberville. Bookstore owner Claire Malloy could kick herself for agreeing to dog-sit them, especially when on the third day of Miss Emily's vacation, they mysteriously vanish and the director of the animal shelter describes the usual destiny of kidnapped pets. Claire's bloodhound instincts start churning. Nick and Nora must be recued, whatever the cost.

The first payment comes due when Claire and a bevy of bereft pet owners collide with a beast named Newton Churls, who controls the lucrative local market in stolen and homeless animals and pit-fight gambling. But undeterred by Churls pit bulls, the sheriff, or her own pet cop, Lieutenant Peter Rosen of the CID, Claire is hot on the trail of a killer.
