Mistress of the dog lover's mystery, Susan Conant is a seven-time winner of the Dog Writers Association of America's coveted Maxwell Award. She has chronicled the adventures of dog writer and dog trainer Holly Winter and her Alaskan malamutes since 1990. When Sire and Damn opens, it's a hot August in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Holly's unexpectedly pregnant friend Rita is about to marry the pretentious Quinn Youngman. As Rita's and Quinn's variously and hilariously eccentric, hostile, duplicitous, kleptomaniacal, and pistol-packing relatives gather for the wedding, deceit is ubiquitous. Fibbing, cheating, and pilfering are one thing. Killing is another! Even a burglar deserves to live, doesn't he? But how can Holly tell truth from lies when no one's word is good? No human word, that is. Dogs don't lie, especially Holly's own bold and fearless Rowdy and psychiatric service dog Izzy, the most charming Labrador retriever ever to bound out of the pages of fiction and leap into the hearts of readers everywhere. An intriguing mystery and a novel of family relationships, Sire and Damn is above all else a dog story told with authenticity and wit. Dog lovers, come, sit, stay!
