Publisher's Summary

Few can rival attorney Andy Carpenter's affection for golden retrievers, especially his own beloved Tara. After he astonishes a New Jersey courtroom by successfully appealing another golden's death sentence, Andy discovers that this gentle dog is a key witness to a murder that took place five years before. Andy pushes the boundaries of the law even further as he struggles to free an innocent man by convincing an incredulous jury to take canine testimony seriously. It will take all the tricks Andy's fertile mind can conceive to get to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and murder, and to save a dog's life - and his own - in the process.

WOW!

I loved this book. So much so, that I've listened to it twice already and am contemplating doing it again! David Rosenfelt has a terrific sense of humor and his lead character is delightful. Want to listen to all his other books!

Two thumbs up!

Great book, spectacularly well written. Love the main character's personality, honesty and commitment. David Rosenfelt doesn't beat on the main character, like so too other authors do so tirelessly. I've listened to the whole series and can't wait until the next one!

I have added Rosenfelt to my top 5 list

I like this author because he uses humor and intelligence in his stories. I like the dog, Tara and his animal lover side. There are always multiple focal points in his stories that make things fast paced and interesting. The concept of a lawyer who is independently wealthy and only takes cases that touch his heartstrings puts him in a class of his own. I hope the author keeps the stories coming!

A very enjoyable time spent

This was the first book by this author that I have listened to. It was fun, enjoyable, and very entertaining. I could not anticipate where the plot was going until it was neatly wrapped up at the end. We drove from Alabama to Oklahoma listening and were sorry that the story line had to come to an end.

Entertaining

I enjoyed this story - perhaps in part because I love dogs. But there was enough humor and heart warming content to keep me interested, and the "mystery" wasn't bad either. The characters were down to earth and the end was satisfying. I would recommend this as a worthwhile and pleasant read.

Very Entertaining

I have "read" all of David Rosenfelt's books and they are all wonderful. Grover Gardner is Andy Carpenter. You can't miss on any of them!

I hope there are many more adventures of Andy Carpenter and his friends.

Wonderful!

David Rosenfelt's character, Andy Carpenter is wonderful. This lawyer/investigator/detective is clever and amusing. The interpretation by reader Grover Gardner is outstanding. Between the drama, chuckles,thrills, and semi frustrated romantic interests, one can't stop listening. The cast of regular characters is unforgettable and, thankfully, Rosenfelt cleverly weaves them into each story in the series. Perhaps most reassuring, Carpenter's neuroses are steadied by his faithful Lab, Tara.
