Alexander McBee has become a private investigator. He has trained by watching re-runs of Magnum P.I., Rockford Files, and other old detective series on the television. He comes upon a strange dog who becomes his partner. Herr Schnoodle is not the most attractive mix of schnauzer and poodle, but he knows how to investigate.
They begin to get more cases as they are able to solve them quickly. They meet Apple Sally, a local street woman. McBee is intrigued by her, but he canít figure out why. Then thereís the beautiful Darcy, the gossip reporter out to scoop McBeeís cases.
Soon McBee realizes there is more to Apple Sally than meets the eye. Can he uncover her past without alienating her or letting Darcy break the story before heís ready? Can he keep investigating his cases without letting on about Herr Schnoodleís part, especially to Darcy?
McBee is definitely a quirky character, but thatís what makes him interesting. I really enjoyed this first book in this series. I look forward to reading many more. The setting and other characters is well written and I feel as if Iíve been there and met everyone. I highly recommend this book.
