About this ebook

The world moves toward normal, but Marcia’s life is rarely “normal”…

Newly vaccinated, Marcia Banks can finally schedule the human phase of training with her Air Force pilot client—the soon-to-be owner of a Chow-Husky service dog named Bear. But when she calls to set things up, she’s informed that the veteran has been in a private psychiatric hospital for months, with no one allowed to visit due to Covid.

Marcia puts out feelers to find out what is going on, and suddenly he is discharged…only to have his private plane crash in a fiery ball two days later. Convinced this is no coincidence, Marcia attempts to find out how her veteran client became the target of a murderer.

What she uncovers looks suspiciously like a scheme to defraud the Veterans’ Administration. But who’s behind it, and did they sabotage her client’s plane? Or did the saboteur have a more personal motive?

And just how determined are they to silence Marcia?

(Note: This story occurs during the end of the Covid pandemic, but it focuses on the optimism and relief of the spring of 2021 in the U.S.)

"You go with the information you have about the person at the time and then trust your instincts." In this new book in the Marcia Banks and Buddy series, Marcia is still trying to self isolate while she waits for the 2 weeks past vaccination to pass. Working with service dogs and PTSD clients can't be easy in non pandemic time, but Marcia and her trainee Carla are doing the best they can as they get Bear, a Chow Chow mix, read for client Russ. However, there's a glitch as Russ is hospitalized for depression and when released gets wrapped up in a murder investigation that brings Marcia into the fray. Can she investigate fast enough to clear Russ and save her own skin? You just gave to read and find out! I have to hand it to Kassandra Lamb to deal with real "entanglements" like Covid-19 rather than writing "around" them. The issues Marcia deals with psychically are real. Lamb's spin is just as delightful here as in any other of the series. Highly Recommended 5/5

About the author

In her youth, Kassandra Lamb had two great passions—psychology and writing. Advised that writers need day jobs—and being partial to eating—she studied psychology. Her career as a psychotherapist and college professor taught her much about the dark side of human nature, but also much about resilience, perseverance, and the healing power of laughter. Now retired, she spends most of her time in an alternate universe populated by her fictional characters. The portal to this universe (aka her computer) is located in North Central Florida where her husband and dog catch occasional glimpses of her.
