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.
