Margaret Mizushima has written a great action novel, “Killing Trail”. This is her debut novel and I hope the first in a long line of novels about Mattie Cobb and Robo. I liked the fact that Mattie is her own person and can stand up to the men she has to work with. She has a fantastic relationship with her canine partner and they move as one when working. This novel is so intriguing because the reader just “knows” that the killer is this one person…not so fast…Mattie and Robo have other ideas. I promise you that you will love the suspense in this book and will wish for more to come in later novels. The only comment I have is that I would like to know more about Mattie; who she is, where she has been, and more.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it as a very good mystery. I was sent a print copy of this book by NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest review.
