Author offers spot in book for finding lost dog

There’s a new mystery on Dennis Lehane’s mind, and the best-selling author is offering a special reward: Find his lost dog and get a spot in his next book.

The plot kicked off Christmas Eve, when the crime novelist’s rescue beagle Tessa escaped from his yard after an outdoor gate latch didn’t lock all the way.

Since then, Lehane’s family has launched an all-out search. They’ve posted fliers, organized foot searches and used social media to try to bring Tessa back to their home in Brookline, Mass., near Boston.

The 47-year-old author of books including “Mystic River” and “Gone, Baby, Gone” is offering a monetary reward and has said he’ll name a character in his next book after whoever finds Tessa.

Lehane said Thursday outside his home that he’s surprised by the media attention the story has attracted, and thinks it has something to do with the character offer.
