I absolutely love these books. Not deep but thoughtful and intriguing. Supernatural mixed with the love of animals and the respect they deserve. My favorites are of course, Whiskey and Tango. However, as a human being I would probably come back as a prowler.....not belonging to either world. I've read JD Robb, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Walter Mosley and Sue Grafton. After Ms. Grafton passed away, I wanted and needed a different kind of mystery writer. Thank you Dixie Lyle. Your book "Marked Fur Murder" was featured in my Shoreline Library. I skimmed the back jacket and I'm now finishing "A Deadly Tail". I've read and enjoyed all four books and look forward to the next one she writes!!!
When I began this book I was quite excited - Dixie Lyle's writing style is humorous, the main characters are intriguing and their repartee is pretty cute. I love the element of telepathic communication between Foxtrot and her animal friends. I was also pleased that no human gets killed. This began as a fun ride into a new realm that includes some bizarre mysticism. However, at some point I got tired of the visiting characters who are not terribly nice. More importantly, I stopped enjoying the absurd aspect (animal gods fighting over a spirit) - it got a bit too far out. Although it reminds me of Terry Pratchett's work, which I usually like, it is not quite as well done. Mostly a fun ride, but not good enough for me to rush out and get the next one. I'll wait a bit then try another.
okay - quick read
