Raymond Chandler meets David Sedaris--the first in a dynamite new cozy series that's "a lot of fun, full of unexpected depths and twists." --Josh Bazell, bestselling author of Beat the Reaper

Amy Carter is missing. And there's no one less capable of finding her than Max Bravo.

Max Bravo is a mid-rung opera singer with a diva's towering ego. And he doesn't do favors. Not until the day he visits a troubled friend in Berkeley and offers to walk her dog.

Max quickly discovers the local dog park. It's an odd, private little world--a preserve for neighborhood crackpots and lay-abouts, and, incidentally, their dogs.

But, the park regulars are friendly. Clubby. They even serve beer. Before long, Max can't stay away.

When one of the regulars disappears, Max's interest in the dog park turns to obsession. Amy Carter - beautiful, adored, pregnant - has vanished. The circumstances bode the worst.

What happened to Amy? The dog park club has brewed up a theory. And they mean to prove it.

Random pickup that looked light hearted and an easy read

Read-a-like to Elinor Lipman's The Family Man, similar writing style, voice and sense of humor. Would have liked to have given it more stars except for the ending...

It starts out fizzy with humor and clever descriptions, but ends in a fizzle of an unsolved disappearance.

Very odd book. No real ending and I found myself not caring at all for any of the characters.

I can't decide if the swearing or the incoherence is the worst.
