They rely on animal instincts... Meet "Gin" and "Tonic." She's a dog person. He's a cat person. But when these two friendly rivals team up to solve a mystery, you can bet their pets aren't the only ones getting collared... Ginny Mallard and her shar-pei, Georgie, are about to run out of kibble and cash, unless she digs up another client for her private concierge business. So she heads to her neighborhood Seattle bar, Mary's, to sniff out an opportunity. Or a gimlet or two. The bartender, Teddy Tonica, is usually good for a round of challenging banter, and Georgie is oddly fond of his bar cat, Mistress Penny. Before she can say "bottoms up," Ginny lands a job tracking down some important business papers that have gone missing--along with the customer's uncle. If Ginny hopes to track him down, she'll need more than her research skills: she'll need a partner with people skills--like Tonica. This is one dangerous case that's about to go to the dogs--unless man, woman, cat, and canine can work together as one very unconventional crime-solving team.
