Book Description

Dec 12 2012 Pet Detective Mystery Series
Sunny Southern California seems an unlikely place for a British widow to call home. But pet detective Delilah Doolittle is probably the least eccentric--if not the most civilized--of Surf City's resident population. With the astute Doberman pinscher Watson sniffing out clues, Delilah follows the trails of missing animals, which often lead to the worst of human nature. The first thrilling pet detective mystery has Delilah Doolittle searching for a champion German shepherd. But when she finds a murdered man instead, it's up to Delilah to collar a killer! .

Where else but in California could one find an elderly English lady
make a living as a pet detective. Delilah Doolittle and her assistant,
Watson the Doberman, have been hired to locate a missing German Shepherd,
Herbert Fitzgherbert. Delilah and Watson start their investigation in
Fitzherbert's home where they find a human corpse wearing an electric dog
collar.

Though she will continue her hunt for the missing canine, Delilah
promises the police that she will stay out of their investigation of the
murdered human. However, Delilah quickly realizes that Herbert's trail
leaves her assisting the reluctant law enforcement officials. As she gets
closer to locating Herbert, Delilah also gets closer to identifying the
killer since both cases are linked.

DELILAH DOOLITTLE AND THE PURLOINED POOCH is a humorous pet detective
mystery that will be enjoyed by dog lovers and fans of Ace Ventura (even if
Delilah is only a ten of hearts). Patricia Guiver shows that she has
talent in her debut novel, but allows her heroine to be a bit too long
winded (I presume that a few more bows from Watson would have helped) and
the story line to simple for who-done-it purists.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good book from first-timer Patricia Guiver Oct. 15 1997
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, only wish it was longer! Delilah Doolittle's personality reminds me of Amelia Peabody and Kinsey Milhone -- feisty, self-deprecating, a little too curious for her own good. Loved the "English" perspective on things, and the cast of eccentric characters. The dialogueis clever but natural, the descriptions of places and occurrences so detailed I can picture them easily. All in all, an excellent read for a firstbook. I look forward to many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read Jan. 30 2000

Delilah Doolittle was new to me with this title. I found her career choice to be quite unique and of great interest. What I expected to be glossed over as a gimmick turned out to be a fascinating way to spend one's time. The plot twisted and led me along to a good conclusion full of danger and intrigue. I hurried to order the other titles in this series and look forward to them.
