Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it—and furthermore, he knows he can handle it.
When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it’s part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren’t too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it’s up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy!
Engaging the services of his faithful Druid, Oberon must travel throughout Oregon and Washington to question a man with a huge salami, thwart the plans of diabolical squirrels, and avoid, at all costs, a fight with a great big bear.
But if he’s going to solve the case of the Purloined Poodle, Oberon will have to recruit the help of a Boston terrier named Starbuck, survive the vegetables in a hipster pot pie, and firmly refuse to be distracted by fire hydrants and rabbits hiding in the rose bushes.
At the end of the day, will it be a sad bowl of dry kibble for the world’s finest hound detective, or will everything be coming up sirloins?
The Purloined Poodle is another exciting novella entry in Kevin Hearne’s New York Times best-selling Iron Druid series.
Kevin Hearne has written the excellent Druid series involving Atticus, Oberon and others characters. This is the first book where the main character is a dog. They solve a mystery with the help of other canines. Excellent book and the humor is priceless!
Oberon's Meaty Mysteries
The Purloined Poodle is a novella that takes place after book 8 Staked in the Iron Druid Chronicles. Its told from Oberon's point of view.
Oberon and Atticus are on the case in this short story about prize winning champion dogs being dog-napped from the Pacific Northwest. Kevin Hearne hasn't let us down with his hound comic relief. Oberon is determined to save all the hounds and earn himself a few snacks along the way. This is a fun story. It's great to get into this hounds head. This book was a fast read and only has me wanting more from this series. Can't wait for my next Druid fix!
