The Caline Conspiracy by M H Mead

This story is set in the future. Dogs are genetically engineered to be the perfect pets called calines. they are tailored to the needs and requests of the individual owner. One such caline, Madeline, stands accused of savaging her owner, a world famed geneticist, and is sentenced to execution. It is up to PI Aidra Scott top get to the bottom of things and find out if Madeline really is a killer or not.

This was a great mystery story and raised some great ethical questions. It was a pacy story with plenty of twists and turns. In a world where genetic engineering is OK for dogs but not so OK for people it painted some interesting pictures of what the future may look like, and how far people will go to get what they want. Some parts of the book I found myself asking 'Would I do that?', particularly the scenes regarding Quinn's baby. The ending was explosive and was right for the book. I do recommend this one, a great read.
