Dino Vicelli Private Eye: In A World of Evils By Lori Weiner

Genre: Mystery, Fantasy

This story takes readers on a fun adventure to New York City, but not the New York City we all know. This one is an alternate-reality version where the dogs are running the show.

Dino Vicelli is an Italian greyhound, cigar-smoking private investigator who is hired for, what appears to be, a routine missing spouse case. Dino quickly learns that not everything is as it seems and there’s nothing routine about this case.

When Dino continually ends up at the scene of many crimes, including several murders, he realizes his own life could be in danger. A beautiful Afghan dog, Jezebel, shows up on his doorstep claiming to be able to help him, his heart wants to trust her but his brain is saying something entirely.

Lori Weiner creates a cute story for both adults and young adults. It’s a quirky book and a quick read that takes so many twists and turns you will feel like you are on a rollercoaster. I do hope this will be the first of many more Dino Vicelli books.
