When Birdie was just a baby, her father, detective Robert Gaux, was killed in the line of duty while working on a case with the New Orleans police department. When multiple break-ins occur (including Birdie’s house), a mysterious woman and a suspicious man by the name of Vin Pardo appear. Clues start pointing back to the murdered detective. It is up to Bowser, Birdie’s faithful dog, to assist Birdie in unraveling the mysterious happenings of St. Roch.
I enjoyed how the author made Bowser such a humourous, loyal dog, and how he was portrayed without a care in the world. I also liked how the novel was written in Bowser’s point of view. It included his thoughts and feelings about the problems he and his owner faced; it really makes you have another view on how a dog might think. I enjoyed how this book was made into a thrilling mystery with twists and turns at every chapter. I would recommend this book for teens that are in grades 5-8 who are looking for an intriguing read to savour.
