Mattie Cobb Mysteries

Mattie Cobb is the creation of Margaret Mizushima. Single and in her thirties, Officer Mattie Cobb solves crimes with the help of her partner, K-9 police dog Robo.

In Killing Trail, the first book in the series, Robo leads Mattie to the partially uncovered body of a local teenager buried in a shallow grave guarded by a large Bernese Mountain Dog. Mattie, leaving the other officer with her to take over, rushes the wounded dog who has been shot to the local vet, Cole Walker. Cole is a single father with two daughters. Mattie discovers that Cole’s eldest was a friend of the victim. With the vet’s help, Mattie and Robo set off to find the girl’s killer.

A traditional mystery set in Timber Creek, a small town in the wilderness of Colorado, Killing Trail is a fast-paced mystery. Filled with well-developed characters battling their own personal troubles and plenty of twists and turns, it’s definitely a good read.

Note: While each book in the series can be read as a standalone, there are continually developing storylines involving Mattie, Robo, Cole Walker, and his two daughters, so it’s best to read them in order.
