Russian-American Detective A.A. Valnikov is a divorced, burned-out LAPD homicide detective who gets teamed with Natalie Zimmerman, twice-divorced with a grudge against men. These unlikely partners are assigned a strange case of a stolen show dog being held for ransom. In this bittersweet tale that the Los Angeles Times called “terrifying and romantic,” the partners will find much more than they ever could have imagined. Cosmopolitan called it “Fast, colorful and gripping…as touching as it is breathlessly entertaining.”
