Karen Weinant Gallob’s newest cozy mystery, The Climbing Dog Affair, the third in the Pat Garrett/Leigh McCracken series, will be available right after the Fourth of July. It is published by Earth Star Publications and released by Create Space, and it is a light, satirical look at politics this year—very current. Some of the characters are Ronald Gump, Billy Ray Clenting, and Bennie Senderson. They are running for county commissioner, but the election is hostile. Their tactics are causing problems for the local veterinarian and a new Vedrussian settlement to the south, among others. And of course, there are dogs involved. Many dogs. This book will be available digitally and as paperback through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Earth Star, myself, and a number of local outlets.
