Newly single Asian antiquities expert Abigail (Abby) Forrest Swann has returned to her ancestral home, Swanns Nest, to rebuild her business and private life when her childhood friends beloved Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Teke, is dognapped. Suspecting Tekes rivals in a competition to become a television spokesdog, Abby sets out to track the dognappers. When her Tibetan Spaniels, petite Dawa (Moon) and her big brother Senge (Lion), lead her to a body, Abby herself becomes the target. In a thrilling climax, Abby needs a little transcendental help from the mystical old soul Dawa and the loyal Senge when she comes face to face with the hunter in the Devil's Woodyard.
Dog Star is the first in a planned series of Abby Swann mysteries featuring two clever and daring Tibbies and a host of their canine friends.
