In Dog We Trust by Neil S. Plakcy

Set in a small town in picturesque Bucks County, Pennsylvania, In Dog We Trust is a traditional mystery in the style of Agatha Christie, with the addition of a lovable golden retriever who has uncanny crime-solving abilities. Reformed computer hacker Steve inherits Rochester when the dog’s owner is murdered, and these two unlikely sleuths go nose to the ground in search of a killer.

IN DOG WE TRUST is available from Audible.


Mr. Plakcy did a terrific job in this cozy mystery. He had a smooth writing style that kept the story flowing evenly. The dialogue and descriptions were right on target.
–Red Adept

Steve and Rochester become quite a team and Neil Plakcy is the kind of writer that I want to tell me this story. It’s a fun read which will keep you turning pages very quickly.

In Dog We Trust is a very well-crafted mystery that kept me guessing up until Steve figured out where things were going. –E-book addict reviews
