Flashes of memory had been haunting her for months, and sleepless nights stacked up one after another. Only when total exhaustion took over could she fall asleep.
Deputy Mattie Cobb’s much needed therapy session is interrupted by a call from the police station – a girl has gone missing from the junior high in Margaret Mizushima’s third K-9 mystery, Hunting Hour.
With K-9 partner in crime Robo at her side Mattie rushes to the junior high, finding the distressed parents of Candace Banks waiting for her. Her police dog Robo has one vital skill that humans don’t – a hypersensitive sense of smell – and his highly trained nose leads them right to Candice’s body . . .
But as one girl is found another disappears. The trouble rattling Timber Creek has only just begun. Each hour a child is missing lessens the chance of finding them alive, but as each clue leads to a dead end Mattie and Robo’s hunt will be their hardest yet.
Critically acclaimed Margaret Mizushima bring us another thrilling small town mystery full of complex emotions and shocking cases which will have you on the edge of your seat.
Hunting Hour is Mizushima’s best mystery yet! Mattie Cobb is a realistic character with flaws that readers both see and relate to, and her undying love for her K-9 partner Robo is endearing
