Product Details


“AMAZING AND UNIQUE…The Ghost Goes to the Dogs was well done and fun to read. I always enjoy Cleo Coyle’s books, but I have to say, this one might be my favorite of the series so far!” —Fresh Fiction, Fresh Pick!

“ANOTHER DELIGHTFUL INSTALLMENT in a series that travels effortlessly back and forth in time with its two main characters, as Jack and Penny help each other solve mysteries in both present-day Rhode Island and post-World War II New York City. The tone skips lightly between charming cozy mystery and hardboiled noir….Having dogs featured in this latest book was a nice addition, and will hopefully increase the appeal of this engaging series to readers who have yet to discover its ample charms.” Criminal Element

“A delightful tale sure to appeal to pet lovers and fans of quirky whodunits alike.”
Kirkus Reviews

Cleo Coyle once again delights with The Ghost Goes to the Dogs, which not only serves up a head-scratching…double-mystery but also celebrates the unparalleled joys of canine companionship. Further, Pen and Jack bring both sweet and sass to the proceedings, ensuring that the human company is equally welcoming, while the melding of modernity and nostalgia will appeal to a wide range of readers. This one gets two thumbs—and two paws—up.” — The Strand Magazine

“The talented duo Alice Alfonsi and Marc Cerasini, who write under the name Cleo Coyle, continue to deliver clever, light-hearted, extremely satisfying reads in a mystery that crosses many genres. This blend of noir, paranormal, cozy, and a dash of romance sizzles with sparkling dialogue and unique plots.” —Kings River Life
