Tripping Magazine is a quirky low-budget magazine that reports on travel destinations for believers in the paranormal. A few fake ghosts away from throwing in the towel, the Tripping staff get the tip of a lifetime when they get a call from Charlotte Baskerville, the rich founder of a clothing company for small dogs. Charlotte thinks that her beloved Chihuahua, Petey, has come back from the dead, and she’s desperate for someone to come verify his appearances.
The magazine’s three-person reporting team travels to Manitou Springs, Colorado, sure that the ghostly dog will be a work of fiction. But when they arrive, they see evidence of Petey with their own eyes. And he’s not just floating by—he’s howling advice and spelling out threats with tiny paw prints. Is the ghost real? Or is someone teaching a dead dog new tricks…like murder? Find out in Esri Allbritten's Chihuahua of the Baskervilles.
