    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Andy Carpenter is a lawyer who would rather not practice law. He'd rather spend his time working with the Tara Foundation, his dog rescue organization, and being with his family and his two dogs, Tara and Sebastian. But when a friend asks him for a favor that involves both dogs and his lawyerly expertise, he can't say no.Andy's friend Beth has found a stray that seems to have belonged to a murder victim - in fact, the man and two of his colleagues died in an explosion a few weeks ago. But when the murdered man contacts Beth, asking for his dog back, Andy knows there must be more to the story. The man claims his life is in danger, and that's why he disappeared. As much as Andy doesn't want to get involved--anything to avoid a new case--he can't help but come to the rescue of a man who'd risk everything, even his life, to reunite with his dog."--Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2020 May #1

Lawyer, dog lover, work hater, and star of Rosenfelt's popular crime series, Andy Carpenter is back. As usual, the narrative is jump-started by a dog. A dog-rescuer friend of Andy's gets a call from a man who says, You've got my dog. I want her back. But the caller supposedly died and was maybe murdered. Since Andy does criminal-defense work whenever he gets off his duff, and since he heads a dog-rescue foundation of his own, it's a no-brainer for the friend to call Andy, who meets the guy and finds out that he loves his dog and isn't so dead after all, prompting Andy to investigate. So begins a complex plot that involves stock fraud, the Russian Mafia, and money laundering. In the end, we might have preferred less of that and more of the riveting courtroom scenes that don't arrive until the 200-page point. Then there's the matter of Andy. Sure, we love the guy, but he protests too much about his ordinariness. Still, sometimes it works. When he has a tough guy accompany him to a dangerous meeting, it's because Andy's closer to Mr. Rogers than Mr. T. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2020 May #4

Happily retired Andy Carpenter can never resist "unretiring" to help someone in trouble, as shown in Edgar finalist Rosenfelt's intricately plotted 21st mystery featuring the Paterson, N.J., defense attorney (after 2019's Dachshund Through the Snow). Beth Morris, director of the Tara Foundation, a dog rescue organization Andy supports, alerts Andy that Alex Vogel, who was reported killed in a recent boat explosion with two other men, is coming by to claim his lost dog. Vogel tells Andy that he's the target of assassins—a tale both Andy and the police find hard to believe. When Vogel is arrested for the murder of the two other men, Andy agrees to represent him, because anyone who would risk his life to reunite with his beloved dog can't be all bad. Andy and his crack investigative team must uncover the real killer before Vogel is convicted of murder—or murdered himself. The courtroom proceedings fascinate, and a shocking twist will catch readers by surprise. It's a pleasure to spend time with bighearted Andy, a capable, self-aware, and witty lead, and his quirky teammates. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (July)
