K-9 Cop - A Young Adult Mystery book promotion Erna Mueller

No one thought as highly of Lieutenant Spencer Watley as he did himself. This cocky cop met 14-year-old Justin Andrews, a smart-mouthed teenager while on a stake-out to nab a group of cyber killers. But he wasn’t going to let anything get in his way, especially a smart-mouthed teenager.

After Spencer bids him good riddance, he is killed by the hackers and stands before the gates of heaven. But - what’s this? After a life time of putting dangerous criminals behind bars, he’s locked out? He yells at the angel blocking his entrance, but she tells him he needs to go through the J.R.P. program before he can enter. That’s the Jerk Redemption program, which to his horror consists of non-stop Oprah and Dr. Phil reruns, or he can go back to earth and help Justin’s dysfunctional family. Spencer opts for the lesser of two evils, to help Justin. 

But the Angel pulls a fast one on Spencer. He can only go back in the body his K9-Partner. Spencer refuses, but like it or not, he becomes a dog. He falls back to earth and is slowly morphed into a dog that closely resembles a mop. And if being a dog wasn’t bad enough, Spencer also swallowed an important microchip his killers need to hack into PC’s and steal millions. 

Justin and Spencer butt heads constantly; both are stubborn and willful, neither one wanting to give an inch. Spencer needs to find out what the killers are up to, so he swallows his pride and forms a bond with the boy. Spencer relays to Justin his past and together with the help of Justin’s girlfriend, Shahla; they discover the hacker’s plans. Spencer has broken down Justin’s reserve and he finally learns the meaning of unselfish love.

 But it’s too late; the hackers have captured them. Can Spencer maul the shins (and other choice areas) of his kidnappers and stop them from their evil plan?

Can a selfish man find a heart?

You bet. 

He just has to become a dog first.
