Sounds Like Skipper
The Story of Kerena Marchant and her Hearing Dog Skipper

From the book Jacket:
Skipper is a shaggy-haired Jack Russell, one of the earliest dogs trained in
a new scheme to help people suffering from deafness. The author, a permanent
researcher for BBC TV, has been deaf since infancy. Modern technology can
equip her with a special high-powered hearing aid, but Skipper enables her
to live alone, summoning her to doorbells and telephones, waking her when
the alarm rings, and warning her of such unexpected hazards as burglars or
fire alarms. The author's story of life with Skipper is full of insights
into the plight of the deaf in contemporary society.

Out of Control

From the Book Jacket:

A Drink Before Dying

Walter climbed into the car and sat behind the wheel, next to Marcia.
"Feeling better, baby?"


"A drink will help you."

 "I'll try." She raised the rye to her lips, gasped a little, but swallowed

 He took it from her and drank deeply. He finished the contents and tossed
the bottle out of the window. It broke with a crash on the stony road.

 "Kiss me, baby."

 She put her lips to his and kept them there for a long time, then lowered
him over the steering wheel. He'd sleep for hours from the veronal she had
poured into the bottle of rye.

In fact, if her plans worked out, he would never wake up ...

Blind or not, Captain Duncan Maclain saw through Marcia Filmore almost from
the start. She was young, beautiful, and deadly-a criminal psychopath who
would stop at nothing to protect her rich marriage. And so, when blackmailer
Walter Crane turned up dead, it was only natural that Maclain should start
feeling his way through the dark and devious maze that led to Marcia. But
that lethal lady intended to protect herself-even if she had to kill again .
. . and again . . . and again...

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to
stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs.
