Dr. Kate Turner is happy with her new life in Oak Falls, upstate New York. Working as a relief veterinarian at a small house-call practice, she truly enjoys helping her patients.

All that changes when client Claire Birnham is found dead, an apparent suicide. A talented artist, Claire had everything to live for: new job, Manhattan apartment, and her Cairn terrier, Toto. As feisty as his namesake in the Wizard of Oz, Toto was devoted to his human mommy. Kate can't imagine Claire abandoning her beloved pet. She suspects it was murder.

House calls provide gossip and clues, some helpful, some not so much, while Dr. Kate continues to diagnose and treat her animal patients. The fragile friendship between Kate and police officer Luke Gianetti frays as she ignores his advice and risks everything to unmask an ingenious killer.

UNLEASHED is the second book in theKate Turner, D.V.M. Mysteryseries. Dr. Kate again combines humorous animal stories and real veterinary medicine then tops it all with a healthy dose of murder.

Eileen Brady

Veterinarian Kate Turner has experienced her share of strange house calls, but nothing prepared her for a murder scene. As Kate's veterinary house calls continue, so does her investigation into an increasingly varied list of suspects-including a tattooed biker who loves to bake.


Readers will want to see more of the likable Kate, who, as she snoops and doctors, provides an inside look at quirky pet owners and the oft-satirized dog show set (shoe polish shines a nose!).




Author Brady, a bona fide professional DVM infuses the narrative with medical expertise and astute psychological reflections upon the behavior of animals - and their attendant humans.

Mysterious Reviews

MUZZLED is an entertaining and strong start to this series.




Kate’s debut has plenty to offer pet lovers and mysterymavens alike. 
”In Eileen Brady's MUZZLED,the sleuth of this cozy mystery is none other than a veterinarian, and as a veterinarian myself, I couldn't be more thrilled. Here is a novel written with exacting authority, along with a frolicking sense of humor about life, animals, and the lengths to which someone will go to right a wrong, all while still maintaining a solid sense of tension and suspense. I look forward to future mysteries featuring the charismatic Dr. Kate Turner...and I'm sure you will, too!"
