Sheila?s new man turns out to be Brian Endicott, an old buddy-turned-enemy of Sam?s. To make matters worse, Sheila announces her temporary stay in town is now permanent: she?s accepted a job as co-publisher of Woof!, a new gossip rag for the dog show world. But before the first issue is even out, a hotter story breaks when Sheila is found dead, strangled with a leather dog leash" -- B&N from the publisher (July 2007)
