The Returns Book Series Information

What happens if you arrive at the Pearly Gates before your time?

F.B.I Agent Bentley Clanton finds out the hard way as he is directed to a little-known area devoted to correcting glitches in the longevity system. The Returns Department specializes in finding appropriate bodies for “early arrivals” before sending them back to earth. It seemed an acceptable solution until Bentley realizes his new body includes long velvety ears, four stubby legs with giant paws, and a tail. Helping him adjust to life as a Basset Hound is his rookie Guardian Angel, along with three other canine Returns.

Laugh along as a delightful Golden Retriever, a feisty Chihuahua, and Flamboyant Westie join Bentley to form an unlikely brotherhood of crime-fighting heroes. The Returns takes you on a fun-loving, junk food eating adventure through the exciting streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras.

The Returns 2 ~ SHOWSTOPPERS
The Returns are back!
The Returns, whose human lives were mistakenly cut short, found themselves being returned to Earth in the bodies of some of the funniest dogs in creation! Now, they have a new case to sink their teeth into and this time they enjoy a bite of The Big Apple. Your favorite fun loving, junk food eating, crime fighting canines are once again partnered with FBI Agent Aiden Davenport. Someone is stealing the world’s top show dogs and the boys go undercover to sniff out the criminals. Along with their rookie Guardian Angel, a couple of wise cracking cats, and some new recruits, the crooks don’t stand a chance.
Enjoy the laughter and adventure as the gang takes you on a thrilling journey from the quaint French Quarter of New Orleans to the exciting crowds of Times Square in New York City.

Showstoppers is the second book in the Returns series. Although it may be read as a stand-alone book, it is strongly recommended to begin with first in the series, The Returns by M. K. Clinton.
