About this title


The Curse of the Cockers continues the sleuthing adventures of Captain John Cunningham, Falklands veteran and champion dog breeder. Gerald Hammond's Cunningham books, lauded by Publishers Weekly as "a superior series," feature the hunting lore and local Scots color that have made this author such an enduring figure on the mystery scene.
This time around, the Cunninghams' New Year's Eve (or Hogmanay, as the Scots call it) revelry is cut short by a hit-and-run accident that leaves a man dead and a terrified cocker spaniel on the side of the road. Then, as news of a particularly gruesome murder shakes his small town, Cunningham finds that one of his war buddies is the prime suspect in the hit-and-run. Soon, the dog, the "accident," and the murder come together in a nightmarish encounter with a ruthless psychopath.

From AudioFile:

Relax for a kinder, gentler murder mystery in the classic British tradition: an engaging puzzle unlikely to trouble your sleep. It may also be read as an homage to a certain kind of genteel, rural community, which must now be an endangered species even in Scotland, where the story is set. The post held so long and honorably by Miss Marple is here assumed by a young couple who breed dogs, when they aren't helping the police over rough patches. Donald Douglas reads with enormous amiability. He sounds a bit older than one estimates the first-person narrator to be, but his tone is perfect. Other characters are given a very satisfactory individuality through subtle shifts of tone and accent, with no hint of display. Here is a model of gracious entertainment. J.N.
