Can Dogs Solve Murders?

We may not have to introduce ourselves to some of you, but we’re Toby and Austin, two Cardigan Welsh Corgis owned by author Hugh W. Roberts and his partner, John.

Why are we famous?

We had no idea that we’d be appearing as characters in one of the stories in Hugh’s new book, More Glimpses. He didn’t even ask our permission if he could use us in the story, although we suppose we have to take into account that Hugh and John, feed us, walk us, groom us, look after us and keep us out of danger. Well, we say danger, but that’s not always the case.

What could possibly go wrong in a sleepy, little village?

Picture this: A sleepy, little, village in the heart of the Dorset, in England, on a few sunny days in mid-June. The village may look quaint and as if nobody dared think about committing murder, but nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors, do they?

Those doors can hide all kinds of dark secrets, even more so if you see the door-handle or letterbox flap moving frantically while walking past. Is something trying to get out or, even worse, something you can’t see trying to get in?

What you shouldn’t do when you discover murder has taken place.

We found ourselves deep in a murder mystery from the day we arrived in Evershot. All you humans seem to do is panic when you hear the news of a local murder because you think you could end up as the next victim. Silly thoughts start entering your minds like is it safe to go out after dark or does rubbing salt into an arctic white carpet remove blood red wine stains?

Because we have a better sense of smell and sound than you humans, you may think we had an advantage when solving the case. But you humans have a far better sense of sight than us. Use your eyes and look for those red-herrings when reading ‘Murder in Evershot‘ because, like all good murder mysteries, they are there. Sure, we used our noses and ears to solve this case, but not every smell or sound was what we thought it would be.

Did anyone say treats?

Did we really solve a murder?

You’ll have to read the story to find out how the murder(s) were solved, but if you still don’t know when you’ve finished reading it, then make an appointment with us as the first client of Private Investigators Toby and Austin (Cardigan Welsh Corgis), Bureau of solving the unknown and missing dog treats. However, we’d much rather play chase with each other.

Story #7: Murder In Evershot

Genre: Murder/Mystery

Set in the sleepy, English village of Evershot, John, Toby, Austin, and Hugh find themselves in grave danger when several murders take place. Can they find a well-known detective, who lives in the village, and ask for her help in solving the murders before the murderer finds them?
