Book One in the Dogleg Island Mystery Series
Aggie Malone is a dedicated young cop who has spent her entire life just looking for a place to call home.  She never thought she'd find it in a quaint Florida village called Dogleg Island, where almost nothing ever happens.  Almost... 

Deputy Ryan Grady is an easy going playboy who carries a surf board in the trunk of his patrol car  and lives in the same rambling beach cottage his grandfather built seventy years ago.  He grew up on Dogleg Island and can't imagine ever living anywhere else.  It's always been the most peaceful place he has ever known.  Until...

is a black and white, blue eyed border collie with amazing powers of perception, recollection, and deduction.  He was born to be nothing more than a pampered family pet, however, and his skills might never have been uncovered.  And then...

A single night of blood and terror changed the lives of these three forever, and forged a bond between them that nothing will ever break.  While each of them struggles to  deal with the scars left by that night,  they must also bring a killer to justice-- a killer who is also stalking them.  And only Flash knows who it is. 


  1. LOVED it! Now I have to split my loyalty between Cisco and Co. and Flash.

  2. More Flash please! I love the connection between him and Aggie. Plus, I appreciate the dog's thoughts interjected throughout. Great work!

  3. Encore. Encore. When is the next one coming???

  4. I loved this and am looking forward to the next one. An engrossing, twisty, exciting and heartwarming read.

  5. Loved the book and the dog, Flash. I am looking forward to many more. This is the first Donna Ball book I've read and I will be reading her other books while waiting for the next Dogleg Island story.

  6. Loved it! The characters are so relateable, so real. And Flash reminded me of my Aussie/Border Collie mix.
