Riassunto: Hard-boiled Georgia peach Jo Beth Siddon has a nose for trouble that rivals even the olfactory prowess of her beloved bloodhounds. This latest caper has her trying to dig up the dirt on what may be an insidious crime ring's marijuana field. The problem is, one of her friends has unwittingly become involved in their shady dealings, and it's up to Jo Beth to help her out of the mess. As if all this isn't enough, Bubba, Jo Beth's violent ex, is hounding her again, and Jo Beth knows that if he catches her, there will be hell to pay.

Wading knee-deep through this quagmire of danger and deceit, Jo Beth knows that her only hope lies not with the snub-nosed .32 revolver in her hand, but with the droopy-eared, drooling hounds at her feet. Man's best friend is working for a woman now, and with the bloodhounds on the hunt, it's a frantic chase at breakneck speed down a convoluted trail of clues that takes readers through the steaming swamps of the Okefenokee and holds them spellbound until the final bone-chilling finish.

Review: Set in a locale and a culture as rich and satisfying as good Southern cooking, Virginia Lanier's A Brace of Bloodhounds continues the adventures of JoBeth Sidden. JoBeth's a feisty Southern gal with an attitude, whose devotion to her highly trained and trusted bloodhounds involves her in kidnapping, corruption, drug smuggling, and every ornery law-enforcement puzzle that comes to light in her South Georgia town on the edge of the Okeefenokee Swamp. Lanier's adrenalin-pumping narratives, which began with The House on Bloodhound Lane and continued in Death in Bloodhound Red and Blind Bloodhound Justice, are told by JoBeth, who is alternately pulled and pushed by her loves: her extended family of friends and trainers, and her wonderful and appealing bloodhounds. In this volume, JoBeth seeks answers to a petition from beyond the grave, unearths a child molester, and faces a renegade alligator who threatens her pups. Along the way, we learn the rich details of mantrailing, Southern hospitality, modern moonshining, and--of course--romance. Those who have already made the acquaintance of Lanier's appealing family of characters will enjoy this installment. Newcomers will be thrilled that there are other books in the series. Pour a glass of fresh-made iced tea, kick back, and travel into the heart of this colorful and intriguing world. --Barbara Schlieper
