UN GIALLO A QUATTRO ZAMPE
Harry è un’artista e abita a Manhattan, insieme al suo labrador nero, Randolph. Ormai ha perso le speranze di ritrovare la fidanzata Imogen, sparita nel nulla un anno e mezzo fa. Ma Randolph, al contrario di Harry, è sicuro che lei sia viva: a dirglielo è soprattutto il suo sesto senso. Harry non lo sa, ma Randolph è un cane molto speciale: legge Dante, capisce il linguaggio di uomini e animali, e ha un fiuto particolare per risolvere i misteri. La prova del fatto che Imogen sia viva giunge presto, quando Richard Nixon, giovane diplomatico all’ONU, viene trovato morto. Per la polizia l’assassina è proprio Imogen, ora dileguatasi, che conviveva con la vittima. La notizia è un brutto colpo per Harry, ma Randolph ha capito che le cose non sono andate in questo modo.

I am a fan - no - an admirer of Randolph! If you enjoy mysteries and admire canines and have a great imagination then this is the series for you.
J. F. Englert doesn’t miss a beat with “A Dog Among Diplomats”, a very well-crafted novel of mystery and intrigue in which Harry plays a minor role. In order to keep his “inspired” Lab hot on the trail of murder, Harry offers up Randolph as a therapy dog to a United Nations diplomat. Randolph is not Leggi tutto
Randolph, like most dogs, cannot talk, but he can read, and he has a taste for literary classics. He also has a nose for murder. In this, the second of J.F. Englert's Bull Moose Dog Run Mysteries, he is again trying to sniff out who done it. This time, it involves shady types living in a boarding ho Leggi tutto
This is the middle book in a series. I didn't like it as well as the two that sandwiched it. I think it was because it wasn't told so much from the dog's point of view. But it was still a decent book. You have to read all three in order to get the story.
Randolph and Harry are back for more! A great follow-up to A Dog About Town, J.F. Englert picks right up where he left off with A Dog Among Diplomats, keeping the pace going and the characters strong. Imogen's story is moved forward as the motives behind her disappearance become clearer. It appears th Leggi tutto
I gave the first book in this series four stars. This is the second, and didn't quite live up to the first. I love the concept of the story being told by a sentient Lab named Rudolph. He lives with his owner, both of them missing Imogen, the almost Fiancee and dog-mom, who vanished a year ago. Now,
The follow-up to last year's A Dog About Town comes out of the gate running. And it's a winner! Like the first book in the series, this one is written in the first person from Randolph's point of view. But I was now used to seeing through the eyes (and nose) of a dog by this time! :P In this installm Leggi tutto
I read this book immediately after reading Englert's 'A Dog About Town.' I liked this story just as much as the first! This time Randolph finds himself trying to clear the name of his mistress, Imogen, who mysteriously disappeared without a trace about one year before. Imogen is being accused of the Leggi tutto
Not great literature, but a lot of fun. It's a crime/mystery, with a dog as the prime detective and narrator. The serious thriller type plot comes with a number of lighthearted sideplots about being a dog "of some intelligence" in a human dominated world. The dog as narrator is not as dog-like as Ch Leggi tutto
In an installment as charming and amusing as the first in the series, a dog about town , our hero Randolph seeks a killer through a bizarre boardinghouse full of oddballs and spies right into the hallowed halls of the U.N. He also continues to pursue the year-old mystery of the disappearance of his
