Lawyer Andy Carpenter is surprised when Willie Millier, Andy's partner at their dog rescue operation, the Tara Foundation, calls to say the alarm has gone off at the foundation building. There has clearly been a break-in, and a dog has been stolen.
All of the dogs that the Tara Foundation rescues are given collars with GPS tracking capabilities, so Andy and Willie know they'll be able to track down the missing dog. They follow the signal to a house in downtown Paterson, and sure enough, the dog is there...standing right next to a dead body. The man had been gruesomely murdered mere minutes earlier. Could it be a coincidence? Or could the dog theft somehow be connected to the killing?
Andy takes the dog safely back to the foundation building, and that should be the end of it, but his curiosity - and his desire to keep the dog from further harm - won't let him stop there. Andy finds himself looking into the circumstances surrounding the break-in and the dog theft, and what he starts to uncover makes him believe that the cops may have just arrested the wrong man for the crime.
Once again David Rosenfelt has written a fast-paced and clever mystery with his characteristic blend of humor, larger-than-life characters, and propulsive plotting.

"Narrator Grover Gardner is once again perfect as the cocky, headstrong lawyer.... Gardner's performance is seamless as he delivers an exhilarating listening experience." (AudioFile)
I love who-done-it's that fit in humor and this one did it well. And how can you go wrong with an obnoxious leading player who's a rich attorney who loves dogs, owns an animal shelter and adopts an 8 year old boy? A great audio book for sure.
I have listened to the whole series, and this was a welcomed addition. David Rosenfelt has done another great job of keeping all our favorite characters alive and fresh! His wonderful imagination keeps new stories coming. Grover Gardener "is" the voice of all the characters in all the books. Another narrator would not be able to pull it off. David & Grover keep them coming & I'll keep on listening! I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys light mysteries.
Give me a good mystery and I am happy!
I love this series...
My genre is mystery, with court room legal thrillers at the top of my list. Andy Carpenter is a mix of humor, mystery, court room drama, with the fun of his sense of humor. I always look forward to the next one. I have all of the books in this series. The characters are well developed and I love them all. Total entertainment for me.
I rarely enjoy an author and narrator so much that I wait breathlessly for his books about Andy Carpenter. GroverGardner makes the authors words amazingly wonderful I find that I wish everyone who need a lot of happy chuckles could enjoy this wonderful pair as I have.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Grover Gardner IS the voice of Andy Carpenter. Andy is always making comments about life and his desires with great humor. The silliness is wonderful because the comments are so truthful and authentic. Andy doesn't keep one guessing about his wants, needs or desires; he just says it like it is. I love these books and I can't imagine Andy without Grover.
The stories and lives of Andy's friends effected by the dogs who come into their lives.
Loved it, had me guessing who dunnit while laughing at the antics. Well read and well done.
Thank God for books of all kinds and ears to hear
I always end an Andy Carpenter book with sadness. I don't want it to be over with. Obviously, I love this series. This wasn't my favorite but it was still awesome. The humor is worth listening to it but the mysteries are also very good. Rare combination!
