Jessie & her dogs step right into the crosshairs of the desperate.

Missing kids, a missing mom, and a headless cadaver confound the Office of the Sheriff and lead Jessie and her dogs deep into the wilderness in search of someone determined not to be found. But the kids are there. So is the killer.

The story of a woman and her beloved dogs who keep on trying, though time is running out.

Mysteries are mental mazes, and this one had me going …and going. First, I couldn’t see the connection …and, even when the characters made the connection for me, it took till the end for me to slap my forehead and groan. Well done, D. L. Keur. And, as usual, the book tears at your heart and makes you laugh, too. And then, of course, there’s the consequences to BOTH my dog’s and my diet. The food!! Beware the food scenes! —L. L. Alexander, freelance editor

I am so glad that somebody believes in good and, no matter what, kept going to find the missing. I was so afraid, but, when the end came, the rewards were worth the nail-biting tension. A really good read! —Joanne Robinson, mystery lover

I think what I like best about this author’s work is that the handling is consistently real. I went back and read the first four that I had not read before being asked to beta read number 5, Dead Falls, and reading that in beta, before editing, I was hooked. So when number six came my way, I jumped in. This author knows her world, her characters, and the life and story situations are so real it makes one wonder if this isn’t actually non-fiction dressed as fiction. I really feel like, were I to travel to Idaho and chase them down, they’d be there real-time. Troubled Pursuit is an excellent book and a great continuation of a great series. —Mark Peterson, crime and mystery reader

JA 6, Troubled Pursuit, is done. Heading soon to editors.

Jessica Anderson Book 6 cover. Just an update to say that, yes, Troubled Pursuit, Book 6 of the Jessica Anderson K-9 mystery series, is done. I’m doing an audio (outloud) reading of it right now, then it will be on to editors. It’s still on pre-order at Amazon, but I’m hoping it’s out by mid-July for you. And, in other news, JA 7 is already started.

Troubled Pursuit-I’m Having an Awesome Time Writing It For You.

Jessica Anderson Book 6 cover. The book has been full of surprises for me as an author. The police procedural part got written straight through …except for the very tense ending which I tend to avoid doing until there’s no other choice …because it takes me hours to recover from the stress. (Authors, at least this author, live the scenes as they write them, so your body’s adrenaline rush gets to you.)

The book is already on pre-order and it says it has a release date of mid-August. I’m planning on a much sooner release, but we’ll see, won’t we?

Meanwhile, it’s been a real kick experiencing the ongoing SAR and HRD ops that Jessie and her wonder mutts execute, sometimes with the whole team involved. And Landon? People keep throwing wrenches into his attempt to keep an ordered life, especially his new house guest, Dr. Sol Preston!

This update happened because I just finished another scene that thrilled me!

Okay. Back to your regular activities, now, as I get back to writing. 🙂

For Those Wondering …Yes, More Books are Coming

For those of you wondering, yes, there are many more books coming in the Jessica Anderson K-9 Mystery series. I’m in the middle of book 6, right now, but also working with another author on a different series …that also includes a dog–a bull mastiff (wonderful dogs, those, by the way). I know that everybody wants more. And there are more. Jessie’s story is ongoing …as Search and Rescue is ongoing and Jessie and her dogs are skilled and dedicated to seeking out the missing! Hugs, Dawn, the author.
