Would you recognize a serial killer if you met one?

What if you talked to one every day? Artist Lia Anderson doesn’t. Neither does anyone else who frequents the Mount Airy Dog Park. But a violent death brings Detective Peter Dourson into the close-knit group, convinced someone is not who they seem. As his investigation uncovers secrets, a grieving Lia fights her growing attraction to the laid-back detective and a killer watches.
