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 long-time girlfriend Laurie, and he will have to muster all of his wits to save those he holds most dear.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Lawyer-to-dogs Andy Carpenter only works when he feels like it, preferring to devote time to his dog charity. But he can't turn down the opportunity to represent a Bernese mountain dog in a pro-bono custody case. But this one involves much more than custody of an excitable puppy: Waggy's previous owner was murdered, and one of the current owners is killed in an explosion moments after Andy takes the dog from the house. Determined to figure out how one dog could be the catalyst behind two murders, Andy utilizes all his legal skills and retains the help of a hacker, a bodyguard, and his law partner to track down the killers in this funny blend of cozy and legal thriller. Fans of the series will be pleased to reconnect with familiar characters, and new readers will be happy to discover something genuinely different in the world of pet mysteries. There is just enough about dogs here to make dog lovers happy but not so much as to drive away others.--Moyer, Jessica Copyright 2009 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Rosenfelt's excellent seventh legal thriller to feature Paterson, N.J., defense attorney Andy Carpenter (after Play Dead), Andy takes on another canine client-Waggy, a Bernese mountain puppy, who's somehow connected to the murder of Walter Timmerman, "a semi-titan in the pharmaceutical industry." Andy represents the dog in a custody battle between Diana, Walter's widow, and her stepson, Steven, who's a suspect in his father's shooting. Shortly after Andy picks up Waggy from Diana, she dies in a bomb explosion at her house. When Steven's arrested for Diana's murder, Andy agrees to represent him. After Andy's police chief girlfriend, Laurie Collins, who's visiting from Wisconsin, is shot and wounded while playing with Waggy and Tara, Andy's golden retriever, Andy realizes Waggy was the real target. Rosenfelt injects this clever installment with courtroom twists, a peek into some scary DNA research and a romantic surprise. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
