Publisher's Summary

Andy Carpenter gains possession of an adorable Bernese puppy whose owner was brutally murdered. Few can rival Andy's affection for dogs, and he will do whatever it takes to insure that this little pup doesn't fall into the wrong hands. However, his playful new friend is valued by several people, many of whom are willing to resort to violence to get what they want.

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.

David Rosenfelt, a native of Paterson, New Jersey, is a graduate of NYU. He was the former marketing president for Tri-Star Pictures before becoming a writer of novels and screenplays. He currently lives in Southern California with his wife and 35 dogs.

    "If you love dogs you will like this book!"

    David Rosenfelt is a good writer, and his stories are just perfectly balanced between intense drama and light comedy. His knowledge of dogs is obvious as seen in his writing. I enjoyed listening to the narrator of "New Tricks". His voice is perfect for emulating the persona of a middle-aged man from New Jersey. I found "New Tricks" to be good entertainment for driving around and doing my errands.

    "easy listen"

    In the middle of this story I looked up Bernese Mountian Dogs to see and read more about the breed. This unchallenging story is entertaining. It is not going to leave you with any great message or thoughts just almost 8 hours of story telling. And that is worth something so just relax and enjoy it!

    "Hard to Top His Stories"

    All of David Rosenfelt's books have been enjoyabe to me and I have listened to most of them. Grover Gardner narrates the characters distinctly and with all the nuances I am sure Rosenfelt intended to have for them. The pair are a great match. As much as I highly reccomend any of them, this is not the best. But it is still worth the credit and time. The character development is easy to follow (some from previous books and others are new) and the story does keep you guessing. Enjoy.

    "Another entertaining Andy Carpenter series"

    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.

    "new tricks"

    If you are a Rosenfelt fan, this will not disappoint. Witty and engrossing, as always.

    "Grover IS Andy Carpenter"

    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.
