DOG IN A MANGER
Rating: 4 Cups
Gloria Trevisi is an editor/reporter for a small newspaper in rural Canada. She is newly
married, but her husband Tony is a concert violinist on tour more than he is home. His
arrival for the Christmas season coincides with a mysterious rabies outbreak, murder
and mayhem. In between rabies shots and marital sabotage from her mother-in-law,
Gloria tries to solve the crime.
Tony Lambert is finally home after a long concert tour only to find that his wife’s life and
career are in complete turmoil. To add to the trouble, his mother is encouraging an ex-
girlfriend to follow him around. He tries to convince her that he is not available, and
hopes that his wife will survive the holiday season.
Rabid animals, murder, and dog fighting plague a small town in rural Canada for the
holidays. Gloria Trevisi is struggling for the survival of her job, her marriage, and her
own life. Skeletons from the past seem to haunt everyone, and no one knows who the
next victim will be.
This is an excellent holiday mystery. It does have a few gory scenes, and they really add
to the story. The author leads the reader on an exciting chase for a particularly inventive
murderer, and handles Gloria and Tony’s marital struggles with flair. This is a great
