Falls continues with the story of Office Mattie Cobb and
her K-9 partner, Robo. This time, they find a body that is floating
near the edge of a lake. Upon investigating and with the help
of veterinarian Cole Walker, they discover that the victim is
a member of a religious cult that has recently moved to Timber
Creek. They also find someone who might have seen the murder.
Can Mattie, Robo and the rest of the Timber Creek police force
find the murderers before another victim is killed?

The characterization of Mattie continues to evolve into a
more rounded person and is shown more when faced with Mattie’s
long lost sister and grandmother. Mattie isn’t as tough
as she first appeared--emotions are finally being allowed
to show themselves. The descriptions of Cole and his daughters
show how sensitive a change in a family dynamic can affect
the family as a whole. The mystery plot is simple but complex
enough to have several possible suspects.
Hanging Falls is another thoroughly enjoyable read
and this reader cannot wait for the next installment. If you
have enjoyed the previous Timber Creek K-9 mysteries, then
you should enjoy this one. This reader highly recommends starting
off with book one of the series, Killing
