"Striking Range, a chilling mystery set in winter-cold Colorado, pits K-9 officer Mattie Cobb and her dog Robo against a band of ruthless killers. Tense and satisfying."
--J.A. Jance, New York Times bestselling author of the J. P. Beaumont series

Memorable characters, rugged setting, and a page-turning mystery. Brilliant!
--Bruce Robert Coffin, award-winning author of the Detective Byron Mysteries

"This pair of crime-fighters is more skillful and better bonded than any in all of literature...Nobody weaves a tale like Mizushima."

--Publishers Weekly

An imperfect heroine and her beloved canine sidekick: What's not to like?
--Kirkus Reviews

"Readers who follow Mattie and Robo will be eager for the updated story line."
--Library Journal

"Hanging Falls is an exceptional mystery, with stunning descriptions, authentic characters, and numerous revelations in store for the thoughtful, engaging Mattie Cobb.

As always, Mizushima's knowledge and attention to detail shine through.

Mizushima does an excellent job of developing [Mattie and Robo] as characters, allowing readers to feel a personal connection to them both.
--RT Book Reviews, Top Pick

"Heart-pounding action and strong, three dimensional characters.
--David Thurlo, co-author of the critically acclaimed Ella Clah, Copper Canyon, and Charlie Henry mysteries.
