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. Grover Gardner, a Washington, D.C.-based actor, director and audiobook narrator, has been a member of the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, as well as resident director at Everyman Theatre in Baltimore. Recently, he has been active in educational theater, directing student productions for local universities, and teachings graduate-level courses in acting and voice-over work. He has recorded over 450 audiobooks and was named by AudioFile magazine as one of "Best Voices of the Century".

    Story
    "not the best of the series but worth a listen"
    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't use a credit because its a bit short but its a easy listen without too many lulls. That's probably the best thing about this series, they move at a fast pace for those who don't like too much detail.

    Story
    "Great plot and humour"

    Rosenfelt's style is very enjoyable combining humour with an interesting plot ... even though you tend to have the solution only at the end ... the journey is really enjoyable as his wise cracking self effacing style is just as pleasant as the story ...

    I use his book as a break in between longer sagas.

    "Humor abounds"
    Would you consider the audio edition of New Tricks to be better than the print version?

    I live these stories - the author has the same sense of humor that I do - very enjoyable - good mystery with twists and turns.


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    love his delivery

    Story
    "listened to it for the author and the narrator."

    I think I picked this volume for the author and the narrator. The story was a little to chopped for me, compared to some of the other stories from this author.

    Story
    "Witty, Sarcastic, Loveable!"
    If you could sum up New Tricks in three words, what would they be?

    David Rosenfelt does it again. The Andy Carpenter character is hilarious.


    What other book might you compare New Tricks to and why?

    The whole series is fantastic. I can't wait for number 10.


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's the reason the audio book is so enjoyable. Next to Lorelie King, he's the best narrator I've listened to.

    Story
    "You'll Howl with Laughter"
    If you could sum up New Tricks in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining, funny, enjoyable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of New Tricks?

    Andy's description of all the people at his house eating him out of house and home had me chuckling off and on all day. Andy's view of the world is rather off center, and very funny.


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is perfect for this. I had just finished listening to Stephen King's 11-22-63, and it took me a few minutes to get used to the sound of his voice...to me he sounds a little like Billy Crystal. He is clear, easy to understand, and her reads Andy's thoughts with a it of dry wit and it works perfectly.

    Story
    "Mystery and dogs...what's not to like?"
    Would you listen to New Tricks again? Why?

    No because I don't like to re read books. There are too many I haven't read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of New Tricks?

    When Laura was shot.


    Any additional comments?

    I particularly like the way this author writes the main character. He seems like someone I would like to know.

    "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.
