Play Dead by Jane B. Mason and Sarah Hines Stevens


About This Book:

“Dodge, a retired police dog, and Cassie, his girl, are perfect partners. Quick on their (six) feet, driven to help, and willing to break a few rules, the two are always ready for a new mystery…       When Verdel Ward, the town’s richest man, disappears without leaving a will behind, everyone from the housekeeper to the mayor wants their hands on the fortune. But Dodge and Cassie smell a mystery – and they can’t help wondering about the suspicious fiancée and the twin brother nobody’s heard of. Who keeps tripping the alarm while sneaking around Ward’s mansion? And why is the new dog at the animal shelter so afraid of clues from Ward’s property? Together, Dodge and Cassie dig up clues and sniff out a trail that leads to a case much more sinister than a missing millionaire. Something’s not adding up, and the pair might be in over their heads. But this dog and his girl always collar their culprit!” Excerpt from the back of the book.

I really liked this book. It would be good for girls ages 8-12. It is very suspenseful in some places. Every other chapter is told by the dog, and you can understand things from a dog’s point of view. The only thing I don’t like about it that it doesn’t talk about God (which, I don’t think the author is not a Christian, so it kinda makes sense… :P).
