In the debut Abby Swann Mystery, Asian antiquities expert Abigail (“Abby”) Forrest Swann has moved back to her ancestral home to build a new life when her best friend’s beloved Chessie, a television spokesdog, is dognapped. Suspecting the Chessie’s spokesdog competition, Abby goes on the trail of the dognapper. When her Tibetan Spaniels, petite Dawa and her brother Senge, 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 when she comes face to face with the hunter in the Devil’s Woodyard.
