Publisher's Summary

Oberon the Irish wolfhound is off to Portland to smell all the things with canine companions wolfhound Orlaith and Boston terrier Starbuck, and, of course, his human, ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan. The first complication is an unmistakable sign of sinister agendas afoot: a squirrel atop the train. But an even more ominous situation is in store when the trio plus Atticus stumble across a murder upon arrival at the station. They recognize Detective Gabriela Ibarra, who's there to investigate. But they also recognize the body - or rather that the body is a doppelganger for Atticus himself.

The police, hampered by human senses of smell and a decided lack of canine intuition, obviously can't handle this alone. Not with Atticus likely in danger. Oberon knows it's time to investigate once more - for justice! For gravy! And possibly greasy tacos!

Alongside his faithful Druid, Oberon and the other loyal hounds navigate by nose through Portland to find a bear-shifter friend with intel, delicious clues at the victim's home, and more squirrels. Always more squirrels!

But will our hungry band of heroes be able to identify the culprit before someone else is murdered? Will there be mystery meat in gravy as a reward or tragedy in store for the world's (or at least the Pacific Northwest's) greatest dog detective?

Like its predecessor The Purloined Poodle, the latest of Oberon's Meaty Mysteries novella, The Squirrel on the Train, is not to be missed by fans of Kevin Hearne's New York Times best-selling Iron Druid series.

    "Oberon is back on the case"

    Amusing and riveting story of the world's greatest canine detectives and their human assistant. Oberon and team solve the case of the mysterious squirrel on the train and a murder that baffled the police in their own magnificent way.
    A great story that is over too soon. But is still wonderful.

    Story
    "A Goofy Pooch"

    This is the first time I have read a story by Kevin Hearne. This novella is number two in the Oberon’s Meaty Mysteries. It apparently is a spin-off of the Iron Druid Chronicles. The book works well as a stand-alone story.

    Oberon is an Irish Wolfhound and is the doggie protagonist. His human companion is a druid called Atticus O’Sullivan. Oberon’s canine companion is an Irish Wolfhound bitch called Orla and Starbuck a Boston Terrier. Apparently, Oberon thinks all squirrel are evil and must be chased.

    In this story Oberon and companies are taking a train trip to Portland, Oregon. A man looking like Atticus is murdered. Atticus decides to investigate.

    The book is well written. Hearne does a good job putting the reader inside his canine characters’ minds. I just love the doggy quips. They made me laugh out loud. My great grandmother raised Boston Terriers and Starbuck reminded me of her dog, Lady. The story is told by Oberon and is completely from his canine viewpoint. This novella is a lighthearted diversion and I found it great to wind up the year with.

    It is three hours long. Luke Daniels does a great job narrating the story. Daniels is an actor and has won thirteen Earphone Awards and three Audies for his narration of audiobooks.

    Story
    "Oberon is the best"

    Kevin hearne’s Oberon is the best talking dog ever. But it’s Luke Daniel’s voice and personality of Oberon that makes him truly amazing. Highly recommend this short story. without knowledge of the iron Druid chronicles it might be a little strange at first. Simply a 2000 year old Druid who looks like an average 20 something hipster/hippie to blend into modern times can communicate with his dog via a mental connection. This story is a dogs POV to a murder investigation.

    "Amazballs!"

    I feel sorry for anyone who just “reads” Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid and Meaty Mysteries series’. I’m sure they are a great “read”, but Luke Daniels’ narration is Amazballs! To miss out on Oberon’s voice would be tragic!

    "Utter perfection "

    This novella is everything I could have wanted. It is the light hearted story that made me fall in love with Iron Druid in the first place. It's hilarious, happy, adorable, touching, topical, and just completely perfect. Luke Daniels is the best voice actor of all time, so you cannot go wrong here in any way.
