The intuition of a detective’s best friend: Simon Rowell

I was sold on reading Simon Rowell’s The Long Game when I spotted the gorgeous Golden Retriever on the cover. The dog, called Harry, is the service dog for lead character Detective Sergeant Zoe Mayer. And Harry’s instincts prove to be a great help to Zoe as she investigates a murder on Victoria’s picturesque Mornington Peninsula.

I spoke to Simon a little while before the book’s release – it’s now available and I highly recommend it, especially if you love dogs and a thrilling mystery read.
