The New York Times Bestselling Mystery

There is trouble brewing in the Louisiana swamp -- Bowser can smell it. Bowser is a very handsome and only slightly slobbery dog, and he can smell lots of things. Like bacon. And rawhide chews! And the sweat on humans when they're lying.

Birdie Gaux, the girl Bowser lives with, also knows something is wrong. It's not just that her grammy's stuffed prize marlin has been stolen. It's the weird rumor that the marlin is linked to a missing treasure. It's the truck that seems to be following Birdie and the bad feeling on the back of her neck.

When Birdie and Bowser start digging into the mystery, not even Bowser's powerful sniffer can smell just how menacing the threat is. And when the danger comes straight for Birdie, Bowser knows it up to him to sic 'em.

        An interesting story from the point of view from a dog, Bowser, from a dog for adoption, all the way to Birdie's detective partner. It all started when Birdie's grandma's store looses it's prized possesion, Black Jack, a big fish that is important. The legend started that behing the right eye of the fish, there was a treasure map, whick Birdie thinks is the reason why it is stolen. It is up to Birdie and Bowser to figure out the mystery, and find the treasure map before their fierce rivals find it. I very well recommend the book.

          Sounds awesome. At first glance, it looked like Gordon Korman's book, SWINDLE. It still looks like a unique and cool book. I can't wait to read it.
