Dangerous Drugs and Dexterous Dogs – Jerold Last

A late-night visitor tells Suzanne that something seems to be wrong with a research program she is involved with. He’s right. The CEO of a Southern California biopharmaceutical company disappeared at sea under suspicious circumstances. Shortly afterwards, the Chief Scientific Officer from a competing company is brutally murdered. Both of the victims, and many of the suspects, were engaged in canine agility training. With Roger busy elsewhere, this case falls to Suzanne, who takes over the investigation and the responsibilities of the missing CEO. Fortunately, she has Romeo, a German shorthaired pointer, to establish her credibility in agility trials, and Roger’s staff of detectives to do the legwork in a major criminal investigation. The novel, available in e-book and paperback formats, free from Kindle Unlimited, can be read as a standalone mystery or a series entry.
