Police Deputy Mattie Cobb needs to talk to the man who tried to kill her, and may have killed her father, but he is murdered at the jail just before she and cold case detective Jim Hauck arrive. But he has left a clue – a map to the area where Mattie nearly died.
Jim and Mattie investigate the area, but have limited success. But when a pregnant young woman who had visited Cole Walker’s veterinary practice a few days prior turns up dead, the investigation turns in a different direction. Is there a connection between the two cases? When Mattie and Cole realize the truth, their lives, along with Mattie’s K-9, Robo, are in jeopardy.
More information regarding Mattie’s father’s death is revealed in this fourth installment in the Timber Creek K-9 Mystery series, as it builds to its conclusion. Striking Range is a suspenseful and enjoyable read.
