If you're a cosy mystery fan then this series is the one for you. With all the political controversy around the world at the
moment,this book made me laugh as my favourite character, Gnarly the dog, runs for election. Compared to the other candidates, Gnarly should win by a length but in politics they don't play fair and Gnarly sees his reputation in tatters. Can it be salvaged?
Can a dog, even as brilliant as Gnarly actually be mayor? In the process, we find out the secrets of the others, secrets that they will do anything to protect.
Of course there is a more serious side as murder is involved.
I loved the way that
the book switches from the serious to the plain silly - how many kittens did Gnarly rescue being one of them. It also casts a rather unflattering light on the media and distorting the truth but it's all told in Lauren Carr's inimitable style. I enjoyed the
last book of hers but this one is just as good.
