Above the Paw

A Paw Enforcement Novel, #5

Above the Paw by Diane Kelly is the 5th book in the wonderful Paw Enforcement series.

There is no doubt that I read any book with adorable dogs on the covers and this series is top on my list of favorites. The Paw Enforcement series follows a female K9 Officer and her canine as they capture villains. The twist is that the storytelling is that it’s told in three 1st person rotating narratives from the point of view of the officer, the K-9, and the villain of the book. This always makes for an enjoyable read.

In Above the Paw, Officer Luz and K-9 Brigit go undercover at a local college to find a drug dealer whose drugs are sending people to the morgue. The author always does a great job of layering in good police work, humorous situations, and fascinating characters. Since this is the 5th book, there was positive progress with Megan’s relationship with her gorgeous boyfriend and happy developments from the other people in Megan and Brigit’s lives. This book goes deeper into the criminal aspect by making the crime more complex, involving many possible suspects and adding in local politics with an upcoming election.

After finishing the last page in this book, I was already eager to read another story in this series.

Book Blurb for Above the Paw

The crime-fighting duo of Megan Luz and her K-9 is back—and on the prowl. . .


When a rash of college students falls seriously ill after ingesting Molly, a “club drug” also known as ecstasy, Officer Megan Luz and her K-9 partner Brigit are tasked with tracking down the dealers. Going undercover at the university leads Megan closer and closer to infiltrating the drug trafficking ring. But when the investigation implicates her former partner and workplace nemesis, Officer Derek Mackey, Megan’s powers of discernment are put to the test.


Thwarted when the Feds seize control of the investigation and frustrated by the lack of attention the DEA is putting into the case, Megan continues her own unofficial investigation with Brigit’s help. But when the trail leads them in an unexpected and dangerous direction, Megan and Brigit find their own lives at risk. Can the K-9 team take down those in power? Or are some criminals simply above the law—and paw?

Above the Paw is the fifth book in Diane Kelly's series featuring Police officer Megan Luz and her K-9 dog partner Brigit.
