Saturday's Gift
Mauser the Great Dane is a fan favorite in the Larry Macklin series… But how did he come to join the Macklin family in the first place? Since this is Adams County, you can bet that it involves murder and mayhem!

Larry Macklin is just a year into his job as a criminal investigator for the sheriff’s office when a simple stolen car leads to a dead body… and an abandoned puppy. Not yet cleared to work a murder on his own, Larry is relegated to dog-sitting and investigating a chop shop while his department nemesis, Matt Greene, tries to track down the murderer.

But when Matt is transferred to another case, Larry is soon neck-deep in murder, drugs and gambling rings. Find out how he solves the case, catches the killer… and arranges a pet adoption.
