The Girl with the Dachshund Tattoo

The Girl With the Dachshund Tattoo - 600x900x300

She has to stay low. Ears to the ground. Danger’s nipping at her heels.

Mel’s tracking a killer in the world of racing dachshunds.

Wiener takes all at the Laguna Beach Dachshund Dash. Melinda Langston, owner of Bow Wow Boutique, and her quirky assistant, Betty Foxx, are on hand to root for their favorite racers. But before the starting gun goes off, hated dachshund owner, Richard Eriksen, is found dead, and gun-toting Betty is suspect number one.

Determined to clear Betty’s name, Mel quickly picks up the scent of the cutthroat world of Doxie racing. Cheating. Doping. Gambling. Controversy lies at every turn. It seems everyone has a secret–including Betty. The killer is hot on Mel’s heels. Can Mel expose the truth before the killer catches her?
