Kenneth Ewald has what it takes to win the presidency: the support of his party, a lovely wife, a dynamic campaign. What neither he nor any candidate needs is a corpse. He knows only one man capable of solving a crime, clearing his son, putting his campaign back on track and catching a killer—his best friend Mac Smith. Oddly enough, it was Mac and his dog Rufus who found the body in the first place.
