Sweet Success for Margaret Mizushima


Margaret Mizushima is pleased to announce the upcoming release of STANDING DEAD, her
eighth Timber Creek K-9 Mystery (Crooked Lane Books, March 2023)


In this episode, the case becomes personal for Deputy Mattie Cobb and her K-9 partner Robo when Mattie’s mother vanishes without a trace. After a dead man is
found tied to a standing dead pine in the beetle-killed forest near Timber Creek, Mattie is forced to play cat and mouse with a killer. In a last-ditch gambit, she goes undercover into the killer’s lair to try to save her mother—or die trying. STANDING DEAD can be found wherever books are sold and is available for preorder now via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Powell’s, Indiebound, and Kobo.
