BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) — Author Dennis Lehane is offering an unusual reward for the person who finds his family’s beloved missing beagle.
Lehane says he'll name a character in his next book after whoever finds Tessa, who disappeared from the family’s home in Brookline, Mass., this week.
He says on his Facebook page that Tessa jumped a fence at the home, and even though she has been micro-chipped, she was not wearing her tags.
Lehane says Tessa is ‘‘smart, fast, and immeasurably sweet.’’
Lehane wrote ‘‘Mystic River,’’ ‘'Gone Baby Gone,’’ ‘'Shutter Island’’ and other books.
