Set during an Alaskan Malamute National Specialty Show, Conant's latest foray into the competitive world of purebred dogs proves lethal for the judge, who is found bludgeoned to death by a blunt object as tasteless as the murder itself. And who might benefit from the judge's death? Many, as it turns out--from the woman who has inherited his job to the organizer of the show, and the handler whose dog now has a good chance of winning.
Dog's Life writer Holly Winter is on the scene with two dogs entered in the show. She know who has access to the murder weapon, but it is a former lover, now working for a firm that specializes in canine reproductive technology, who unwittingly puts her on the trail of the killer.
