Mim, one of the litter of pups born at Three Oaks Kennels, is a throwback to Clunie, a champion with a strong and difficult temperament. John's kennel-maid Daffy tries to train the highly strung pup for gunwork, but when the task proves impossible, John agrees to sell Mim to local farmer and businessman Quentin Cove.
So imagine John's surprise when a year later the supposedly gun-shy Mim begins winning at field trials. Perhaps, as Daffy believes, John wrote Mim off too soon? Or is there a more sinister reason for the bitch's sudden success? And what is it that Cove's farm manager, Dougal Webb, has learned about Three Oaks Kennels--information so damning he believes he can try a spot of blackmail? That is until he suddenly disappears... s a greater-than-usual quotient of cat-and-mouse action, as Cunningham and the cops hunt down a dastardly breeder.
