Share Article

Deceit and secrets mask themselves with discreet Southern gentility in this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing. A matriarch’s death triggers a chain of events – and eventually a murder – in a close-knit community in Savannah, Ga.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club” by Duncan Whitehead.

Secrets and past hurts swirl under the surface, and a lurking killer adds spice to this story of intrigue and deceit.

(PRWEB) March 14, 2013 -- The death of Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club founder Thelma Miller leaves fellow members of this cocktail and dog-loving club grieving but vying for the attention of her devoted husband, Elliott, who might run for mayor of Savannah. In this new novel set in a quiet, leafy neighborhood of this classic Southern city, all is not what it seems. Secrets and past hurts swirl under the surface, and a lurking killer adds spice to this story of intrigue and deceit.

“The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club” features an extraordinary cast of characters. An old woman plots her revenge for a deed done decades earlier, a beautiful woman wins the trip of a lifetime that leads to an unexpected encounter, a con man thinks the neighborhood will be easy pickings, an accountant tries to hide a secret, and a 60-year-old former showgirl has plastic surgery. As Georgia’s summer heat rises, the plot thickens with the discovery of who might be bound for the freshly dug grave in Gordonston’s park – and who might be behind it.

Even Elliott has secrets he’d rather not see the light of day, especially with his latest foray into politics. As the number of potential targets for killing mounts, the director of the crime organization must make a choice. In addition, despite all of the potential murder and revenge swirling around them, a top priority of the Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club remains the man who refuses to clean up after his pooch.
