Everybody who loves dachshunds knows about their adventurous streak. So when Mame, the elderly dachshund in Dixie Hemingway's care, gets away from her to investigate a mound of mulch, Dixie isn't surprised. What the dachshund digs up, however, is not only a surprise but a trigger for a whole new pile of jolting events that puts Dixie at the center of a hunt for a psychopathic killer—someone who fears Dixie saw him leaving the scene of a brutal murder. In the lovely seaside community of Sarasota, Florida, another desperate chase to collar a criminal is about to begin…

Praise for Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund

“Fast paced . . . the canine caper crowd will enjoy Florida's leading pet-sitter.” —Midwest Book Review

“Don't let the cutesy title fool you. This isn't one of those lightweight, frothy ‘fun with animals' stories... It's tough, gritty, and edgy. One of the strongest points of Clement's work is her knack for building suspense slowly but steadily, to the point where you have no idea what peril might be lurking just around the bend.” —Sarasota Herald-Tribune

“Clement uses the animals in Dixie's care…to enrich her plot, creating in the process an entertaining cozy, one of the few set in South Florida, land of noir.” —Booklist

“Destined to be a very popular series.” —Kirkus Reviews

“…for anyone who loves mysteries, animals, or just plain great writing.” —Laurien Berenson, author of Chow Down

“Builds suspense and delivers startling revelations.” —Publishers Weekly
