Book-Inspired Cocktails: “Dogfish of Doom”

When you represent celebrity animals, it's usually the owners that drive you to the drink.

And what better way to deal with them than with this week's Pick Your Poison—where we create a cocktail inspired by a recently published mystery, thriller, or crime novel—the “Dogfish of Doom” cocktail, inspired by E. J. Copperman's first Agent to the Paws Mystery, Dog Dish of Doom!

Dog Dish of Doom by E. J. Copperman

Dog Dish of Doom by E. J. Copperman is the first book in the new Agent to the Paws series (available August 15, 2017).

Kay Powell wants to find that break-out client who will become a star. And she thinks she’s found him: His name is Bruno, and he has to be walked three times a day.

Kay is the Agent to the Paws, representing showbiz clients who aren’t exactly people. In fact: they're dogs. Bruno’s humans, Trent and Louise, are pains in the you-know-what, and Les McMaster, the famous director mounting a revival of Annie, might not hire Bruno just because he can’t stand them.

This becomes less of an issue when Trent is discovered face down in Bruno’s water dish, with a kitchen knife in his back. Kay’s perfectly fine to let the NYPD handle the murder, but when the whole plot seems to center on Bruno, her protective instincts come into play. You can kill any people you want, but you’d better leave Kay’s clients alone.
