Plot Overview

Amos and Peter's latest murder case goes to the dogs--literally: the arrogant owner of a popular dog is strangled to death with a dog leash, with the prized pooch, Skippy, as the only witness to the crime. The big question for Amos: why was Skippy so silent while his master was being killed? Suspects include the owners of other 'dog stars', along with the owner of a dog food company (who stood to lose a bundle when the victim reneged on a lucrative advertising deal) and a veterinarian.
