K-9 Cop by Erna Mueller

Put together a sarcastic, arrogant cop and an angry, computer savvy teenager and you get a good idea of what you’re in store for in K-9 Cop: Case #1 – The Dreck Report.

While on a stakeout, a police detective named Spencer Watley meets Justin Andrews, who is often in trouble with Principal Hammersmith. When Spencer is killed in the line of duty, he comes back to life as a dog and is sent to help out Justin’s family. Meanwhile, a group of cyber-killers are on the search for our detective turned pooch because he’s accidentally swallowed a microchip that will allow them to hack into computers and steal millions. While Spencer and Justin continue to butt heads, the Cyber Killers close in, kidnapping them. How will Spencer get them out this mess?

While I found the opening chapters a bit confusing, K-9 Cop is a funny, adventure-filled mystery for tweens and young adults. Spencer’s interactions will leave them in stitches. His comeuppance of returning as a dog and needing to earn entry into heaven will intrigue them. And the touching ending will warm everyone’s heart. Justin has a difficult story all his own, so to see Spencer and Justin connect on any level is rewarding. Though not what one might consider as your typical tween/young adult read, the content and some of the banter definitely places it into this market. I would say you’re looking at 14 and up for this one.

K-9 Cop is a fast-paced story with engaging characters that many will enjoy.
