Kate Menke is convicted of murdering her husband, but a friend and member of the group isn't sure that Kate did it. Carter is asked to investigate Kate's case to see if there's any possibility that her conviction should be overturned. Carter soon finds enough reasons to believe that Kate is as innocent as she claims, but vigilante style justice won't get Kate out of jail.
Carter's style of investigating is one of the best parts of the books. His bad ass, take no prisoners attitude is the greatest. He does the sort of nasty work on the bad guys that most of us only wish we could do. He breaks bones, drugs, tortures, and kills his way to the truth.
But Carter isn't the only kick ass character this time. Kate has toughened up in preparation for jail, and because she's decided she'll never let anyone take advantage of her again. Her naivety and trust have landed her in jail, and her experiences in court and in jail have changed her. She's tougher, more determined, and unwavering in her resolve now. She is a perfect kick ass compliment to Carter.
There is a hint (in the book and from the author) that Kate may make a future reappearance in the series. Personally I would welcome her, but I'm just one. Get The Dogtrot Murder for yourself, see what you think of Kate, and let R.E. Schobernd know if you'd like to hear from Kate again in another book.
