His sister has been arrested for the murder of her fourth husband, and his father is near death.

"This is quite simply one of the best books I've read in a long time. I absolutely loved it. While I know the Ozarks and Colorado well, it certainly isn't necessary for the reader to have knowledge of those areas because of the superb dialogue, the plot, and the author's obvious love for animals. Fred is a wonderful character. And yes, my husband has also given a little beer here and there to our dogs over the years! When you pick this book up, better create a little time to devote to the read,because once you begin it, you won't want to put it down. Kudos Mr. Houston on writing a great read!"
