A Body in the Woods
Cy has a new friend, he of the four-legged variety. On the morning of the winter’s first snowstorm, Cy’s new friend finds a dead body in the woods. When an autopsy reveals that the man was murdered, Cy and Lou, sometimes accompanied by Cy’s new friend, go traipsing through the woods, driving the most sparsely populated part of the county. They occasionally drive into town to try to figure out who murdered the man. They soon learn it is easier to deduce why he was murdered than to figure out who killed him.
