Terrance O'Connell is still teaching Tooten, a small service dog, new tricks. Together the two friends solve mysteries that Ter finds through "a break in the pattern" as well as mysteries that they are requested to solve, both in Boulder as well as other cities. Tooten has become a Canine Ambassador in the Helping Paws Program and Ter must take on more responsibility as a partner to an Ambassador.
Thirteen-year-old Terrance O’Connell thought life was over when he was sent to live at the foster home of Police Captain Leroy Gonzalez. He had grown up in a family of small-time criminals, and he thrived on the streets. However, when he met Cap’s service puppy in training, Tooten, he came to realize he had found a soul-mate, one who was curious as well as fearless, and would always be faithful.
Maybe Mrs. Mitchell had been kidnapped, maybe killed, or maybe she had just run away from her husband. Maybe Mr. Haymer’s tulips were just vandalized or maybe there was a body buried there. Maybe Deanie had a great imagination and maybe Izzy just wanted to open locked doors. But whatever the reasons, the girls fall into a life-threatening mystery that has too many maybes.
