The new Duffy Dombrowski Mysteries short story collection with Basset Hound rescue stories, hound essays and...drum roll please...the world famous Basset haiku, actually Bassetku, from Ginny Tata-Phillips.

Also featuring the novella "Planter's Punch" with JA Konrath. See how Duffy and Jack Daniels, get together, right some wrongs and just maybe...well, you'll have to read it. Previously available only on Kindle!

Best Part? 100% of the cash goes to helping Basset rescue!

The covers were auctiouned off and Shelly Nowicki Gordon's hound, Duke graces both the front and the back. The auctioned raise nearly $6,000 for hound rescue.

Available at Basset rescue events and ONLY at ABC Basset Rescue's Slobber Shoppe

When it comes to cozy crime fiction you can have arguments about whose best -- Christie, Sayers, etc. When it comes to noir crime fiction you can argue over Cain, Chandler, etc. But when it comes to basset hound crime fiction, there's no argument at all -- Tom Schreck forever!

Keith - A little known fact is that my first published short story featured a basset hound. Really, truly, no lie. It appeared in a SinC Chapter collection of stories called Chesapeake Crimes.

So there you go. I'm throwing my hat in the basset hound ring.
