The Case of the Hound Who Didn't Stay – The Second Snoopypuss Mystery
Alice and Lena are once again snooping around in the Midwestern town of Dingle Grove, and this time they are joined by a bloodhound named Audrey. When an elderly man disappears, Audrey the hound finds him digging in an open field, weeping. Alice signals her dog it's time to leave, but Audrey lies down nearby, her jaw flat against the earth. Alice recognizes the expression in her dog's eyes - the sad look more intense than the one Audrey reserves for dead squirrels and night crawlers.
Alice questions whether she should alert the police to her suspicions. Is it a waste of police time. Will Alice's report create needless trouble for the old man with dementia? And what is this obsession with outlaws and gangsters? With the help of Dingle Grove residents and a goofy, but lovable, bloodhound, Alice tries to find answers and unearths a long-buried secret in the process.
