The book

“Bound to remind readers of Amores Perros, prefigured here as an equally powerful police procedural.”—Kirkus

Detective Petra Delicado and her maladroit sidekick, Garzon, investigate the murder of a tramp whose only friend is a mongrel dog named "Freaky.” One murder leads to another and Delicado finds herself involved in the sordid, dangerous world of fight dogs. A crime story for dog lovers and lovers of dog mysteries.
