Burned-out software engineer Jake Martin and his Golden Retriever, Fred, live in a mountain cabin far enough from Denver to escape the rat-race but not far enough to escape its crime. While remodeling an old house he uncovers a stack of love letters that will turn his world inside out.

When word of the letters gets out, people start dying, including the owner of the house Jake was remodeling. With his main source of income gone, he lets his friend and neighbor, Bonnie Jones, talk him into searching for the killer after they are offered a large retainer. The problem is the person who hires them is the major suspect.

With the help of Fred and Bonnie, Jake continues to find more evidence that his new employer is trying to create a smokescreen to divert attention from himself. Will the trio of amateur detectives be able to stop the murders, or will they become the next victims?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Refreshing to read a good mystery without the four letter words and smut that are so common in too many other books these days. Enjoyed the light comedy, interaction and caring relationship between Jake, his neighbor, Bonnie, and his wonderful Golden, Fred. Thank you!


The stories from Richard Houston just get better. I look forward to another book from him with these characters, especially Fred, the Golden Retriever, and this level of mysterious plot. Just a really enjoyable read!


I have really enjoyed the characters in this series and the story lines are written to keep you guessing. This may not be the most well known author but I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.


I love love love these stories. I’ve grown fond of Jake and Fred and Bonnie. Clean writing, no sex scenes, no really derogatory talking, this is not “R” rated, just the way I enjoy stories. I recommend you to read the whole series, you
will enjoy it.


I stumbled across this series, however I am very glad I did. After the first book I quickly purchased the rest of the books in the series. These books are well thought out. I read a lot of mysteries and I never saw the culprit coming! I
