9781494488611: K-9 Blues: Paws & Claws #3 (Volume 3)

The Three Dog Detective Agency has always worked to protect the weak, ensure justice for the oppressed, and occasionally save the world, but those efforts have not always been appreciated by Officers Antony and Arnold of the Chula Vista Police Department’s crack K-9 Unit. Those two respected and highly decorated police dogs often find themselves at odds with Levi, Sunny and Yoda, the three dogs who operate the detective agency. In previous adventures, the police dogs were willing to look the other way when the Three Dog Detective Agency protected its clients and pursued its own cases, at least in the end, because malefactors were brought to justice and credit was given to the K-9 Unit. In this latest adventure, however, Officers Antony and Arnold find themselves going head-to-head with Levi, whom they believe is hiding a Whippet named Slim Shady, an accused thief and biter. Unknown to either the K-9 Unit or the Three Dog Detective Agency, Slim Shady is but a pawn in a much larger game. An ancient evil rises from the shadows, and those touched by its paw are changed forever. Officers Antony and Arnold find themselves disgraced, accused of heinous crimes, and dismissed from the K-9 Unit. Humiliated and humbled, they must seek help from dogs they have often held in disdain...only to discover the Three Dog Detective Agency is already on the job. Once again, the Three Dog Detective Agency must battle evil and injustice, but now their enemies strike from the shadows and nothing is as it seems. This time evil wears a mask.

From the Author:

In the third Paws & Claws book, I wanted to highlight the K9 dogs of the Chula Vista Police Department. Officers Antony and Arnold, who had a cameo in the first book and a slightly larger role in the second, now move to center stage. When they come too close to uncovering the activities of the mysterious dog known as The Master, they are framed and expelled from the K9 Unit. They are forced to turn to their sometimes rivals/sometimes allies, the Three Dog Detective Agency for help. In this book we learn a lot about dog society and the ways they work with Companions (their name for us), as well as how they often keep us in the dark, for our own protection and safety. The story of The Master, an ancient and evil dog, is based on an actual event that happened in Chula Vista about forty years ago, when a strange creature was reported terrorizing animals in the eastern part of the city. Eventually it returned to the darkness from which it came. I always wondered what would have happened if it had been an ancient dog and had tried to control the packs of the city. I like to think he would have been foiled by the CVPD K9 Unit, as well as by courageous dogs like Levi, Sunny and Yoda.

About the Author:

Ralph E. Vaughan is the author of several Sherlock Holmes novels and stories, such as "The Adventure of the Ancient Gods," "The Dreaming Detective," and "Sherlock Holmes and the Coils of Time." He is the creator of the popular Paws & Claws series, which began with "Paws & Claws: A Three Dog Mystery," in which three amazing dogs protect their neighborhood, thwart the evil plans of the nefarious Feral Gang, and occasionally save the world; the series continued with "A Flight of Raptors," and "K-9 Blues." The fourth book in the series, "The Death and Life of an American Dog" finds the dogs saving an Army dog, and in the fifth, "Dogs of S.T.E.A.M.", the dogs travel back to a steampunk version of London in 1887. Most recently, he authored "Shadows Against the Empire," an interplanetary steampunk adventure set in 1882, and a second steampunk novel, "Amidst Dark Satanic Mills." He is a long-time resident of Chula Vista, California, which is the setting of "Paws & Claws." He is married and has two children, a daughter who is a playwright and a son who is a conductor for the BNSF.
