Booklist Review: "New Jersey defense attorney Andy Carpenter has a soft spot for strays both his clients and the dogs who end up at his rescue organization. In his seventeenth outing, however, he's not as sympathetic to his client as is usually the case. That's probably because Dave Kramer is his wife's handsome, still-single ex-boyfriend. Dave is accused of killing the truck driver who had been hauling 70 dogs from overcrowded shelters in the south to the northeast to find new homes. Kramer had been arguing with the driver but claims to be innocent of the crime. Curiously, there are fingerprints in the truck belonging to a man wanted by the FBI. So irreverent Andy finds himself in the middle of a case of international intrigue. The dogs in this realistic series aren't anthropomorphized crime solvers, but they can be very cuddly, and they always show the reader that, for all his wisecracking, Andy has a heart of gold. Series fans will welcome this latest installment, and those unfamiliar with Andy and his crew will be delighted to have so much catching up to do.--Keefe, Karen Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Edgar-finalist Rosenfelt's cleverly plotted 17th mystery featuring Paterson, N.J., defense lawyer and dog rescuer Andy Carpenter (after 2017's Collared), Andy gets a call about 61 dogs found in a tractor trailer parked at a rest stop on the Garden State Parkway. Andy later learns that the trailer's driver, Kenny Zimmer, has been shot and that the shooter is his wife Laurie's ex-boyfriend, former cop and sometime PI Dave Kramer. Kramer admits to the fatal shooting, but claims he acted in self-defense after Zimmer attacked him with a knife. Andy reluctantly agrees to defend Kramer, but it won't be easy, especially when a knife isn't found at the crime scene. It looks like a setup or maybe a hit gone wrong, and Andy's digging soon puts him in the crosshairs of some very bad people. Andy is an affable, funny narrator, and his Nick and Nora-like banter with Laurie, a highly capable ex-cop, leavens the dark deeds they uncover. Series fans and newcomers alike will have fun.
