Animal Instinct : A K Team Novel #2 by David Rosenfelt

Corey and his dog Simon are retired now and they are private investigators.  It's a lot easier to investigate if you're not a murder suspect...

Minotaur Books and Edelweiss let me read this book to review (thank you).  It will be published April 6th.

The case starts with a woman being gunned down in a parking lot.  Corey knew her.  He had stopped a domestic violence incident between her and her lover, but she would not press charges.

Her boyfriend calls Corey and says he has something to tell him but he has to visit him to hear it.  Corey goes and finds him dead on the floor with his throat cut.  The worst part is that he knew someone had been in his house but he found nothing missing.  Unfortunately whoever was there was setting him up for a fall.  The cops find some clothes of his and a knife in a dumpster and he's soon arrested.

As he and his team try to determine what's going on and why, the body count keeps going up.  Some are supposedly suicides, Corey just missed being killed because his dog alerted him.  As more people die they are still trying to find out the scheme.  The closer they get, the more dangerous it is.  Whoever masterminded the scheme wants no living witnesses.

It's a complex medical fraud and you're not sure if Corey will be alive by the end...
