A lawyer by day-and then only when he's forced to take on new cases-Andy Carpenter's true passion is the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization he runs with his friend Willie Miller. So it's frightening when Willie calls him to say the alarm has gone off at the foundation building, and there's clearly been a break-in. It turns out that a recently rescued dog, nicknamed Cheyenne since her arrival at the foundation, has been stolen. Andy and Willie track the missing dog to a house in downtown Paterson, New Jersey and sure enough, they find the dog...standing right next to a dead body. The man had been gruesomely murdered mere minutes before Andy and Willie arrived. Could it be a coincidence? Or could the dog theft somehow be connected to the killing?

Andy takes Cheyenne safely back to the foundation building, and that should be the end of his involvement, but Andy's curiosity-and his desire to keep the dog from further harm-won't let him stop there. The cops have just arrested a man named Tommy Infante for the murder, but as Andy looks into the circumstances surrounding the break-in and the dog theft, he starts to wonder if Infante might actually be innocent. And when Andy takes Infante on as a client and starts searching in earnest for evidence that will exonerate him, what Andy starts to discover terrifies him. The murder might be just one small cog in a plot with far-reaching implications, and unless Andy can uncover the truth in time, thousands of lives could be in imminent danger.

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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "One more spin for series star Andy Carpenter, who distinguished himself early on by not being bitter, boozy, cuckolded, and kicked off the force for excessive enthusiasm. He's a rich, lazy lawyer who loves not having to work. But trouble finds him. Here it's a dog stolen from a dog-rescue foundation he heads, and his quest to recover the mutt leads him into murder, diamond smuggling, even global terrorism. In the past, his zest for his mission has been infectious, but not this time: too many characters, flat writing, and a revelation at the end that should be stunning but comes across as an excuse to go home. Some readers may be put off by the strain, stronger in each book, of lowbrow pandering. Andy's first stop is the dum-dum sports bar, and after that he doesn't miss a chance to tell us how proud he is of knowing so little. This series, combining, as it does, love of dogs with mysteries that are more realistic than cozy, has its devoted fans. They'll want to read this one, but after finishing it, they'll be hoping for better next time.--Crinklaw, Don Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "At the start of Rosenfelt's subpar 13th mystery featuring lawyer Andy Carpenter (after 2014's Hounded), thief Gerry Downey breaks into the Tara Foundation, Andy's dog rescue operation in Paterson, N.J., and steals Cheyenne, a German shepherd mix. Thanks to a GPS tracker in the dog's collar, Andy and his partner, Willie Morris, are able to locate Cheyenne in a modest house in downtown Paterson, where they also discover Downey's nearly decapitated body. Their efforts to track down Cheyenne's former owner lead to a fugitive suspected of murdering his business partner and to a larger case involving a ruthless assassin and arms dealer, international diamond smuggling, and domestic terrorism. On the home front, Andy wisecracks with Laurie, his bride of five months, and takes an overly invested interest in the baseball ability of their recently adopted eight-year-old son, Ricky. Series fans will hope for a deeper look into Andy's life with his new family in the next installment. Author tour. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
