It will take more than Andy's usual courtroom theatrics to save this dog, including a little help from his beloved Golden Retriever, Tara. Andy soon discovers that anyone around him is in danger, including his longtime girlfriend, Laurie, and he will have to muster all of his wits to save those he holds most dear.

"Rosenfelt injects this clever installment with courtroom twists, a peek into some scary DNA research and a romantic surprise." (Publishers Weekly)
Mr. Rosenfelt is a very entertaining writer and includes his passion for dogs in his works. The Andy Carpenter series are right up there with the most entertaining books I have listened to. At times the humor and wit that is interjected into the book has me laughing out loud. My wife and I have listened to all of the series at least twice. I find the audio books even more entertaining than the paper version due to the excellent reading of Mr. Grover Gardner. To me, the voice inflections and totally believable portrayal of the wisecracking Andy are without the best that they can be. To me, Mr. Gardner IS Andy Carpenter and could not easily be replaced by any other reader. I find myself actually envisioning how Andy and all of the characters look and believe me there are some entertaining and unusual characters in the series. When I listen to these books I get totally engrossed and find myself traveling inside the books covers. I highly recommend this series.
I have read all of the books in the series and really love the easy (dry) humor and excellent "flow" of the narrator. Premise is cute - dog needs a lawyer.
Listening since 2004. Mystery, thrillers and anything that can blend with a walk, jog, exercise, long drive or a wait at the airport.
Not his best. But still good enough for a constant smile, suspense and a few LOL!
I pray there will be no end to Andy Carpenter & Company nor of Grover Gardner's narration of same. As I read other reviews, I realize my review has already been written many times over. Laugh out loud entertainment, wonderful, well-developed characters (any of whom I'd like to call friend) and of course, Tara, his golder retriever. And, again, the very dry humor. Mr. Rosenfelt's books will always be at the top of my wishlist.
As usual this is a winner from Rosenfeldt. It is entertaining and well written and keeps you involved in the story. Good narration.
