Synopsis

Carol Lea Benjamin's second Rachel and Dash mystery, set again in New York's Greenwich Village, fulfills the promise of the first. Hired to investigate the suicide of a young woman, Rachel's search for answers, accompanied by Dashiell, her pit bull, leads her through a maze of riddles worthy of a Zen master and depends as much on human nature as on the nature of a popular breed of dog.
