Summary

"Listening to Grover Gardner narrating a David Rosenfelt novel is like sliding into favorite slippers at the end of a long day: One feels the joyful gratification of a perfect fit." -- AudioFile

The next audiobook in David Rosenfelt's witty, heartfelt mystery series featuring lawyer Andy Carpenter and his faithful golden retriever, Tara.

When defense lawyer Andy Carpenter's veterinarian asks to speak to him privately at the checkup of his golden retriever, Tara, the last thing Andy expects is Truman. Tiny, healthy, French bulldog Truman was dropped off days ago with instructions to be euthanized by a man everyone thought was his owner. But now the owner is nowhere to be found.

Andy is furious. Who would want to euthanize a perfectly healthy dog with no explanation? He is willing to whisk Truman away to the Tara Foundation, the dog-rescue organization which is Andy's true passion. They will find a home for Truman. But that's not all the vet tells Andy. Thanks to Truman's chip, it's discovered that the man wasn't Truman's owner at all . . . Truman's real owner was murdered.

It's now up to Andy - with help from his loyal sidekick Tara, Truman and the rest of the gang - to solve this case. In the latest in the popular Andy Carpenter mystery series, David Rosenfelt's charmingly clever wit and love of dogs are back and better than ever.

Praise for Grover Gardner as Andy Carpenter:

"Grover Gardner's narration of Rosenfelt's whodunits is what good audiobooks are all about...Gardner's delightful portrayal of defense lawyer Andy Carpenter continues to be fresh, allowing listeners to glimpse Andy's soft heart and quick humor." -- AudioFile Magazine on Outfoxed

"Gardner's breezy, slightly sarcastic delivery is just what's needed for Rosenfelt's breezy, slightly sarcastic mysteries featuring multimillionaire New Jersey lawyer Andy Carpenter." -- PW on Play Dead

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Growing weary of the detective hero with a wrecked marriage, a botched career, and a drinking problem? Try Rosenfelt's series hero, Andy Carpenter, who is probably as close to Lord Peter Wimsey as the modern American crime genre can get. He's rich, he pretends to be dimmer than he is, he refuses to take anything seriously. Until the first corpse appears. This time it's a potential corpse, and it's a dog, a likable little French bulldog called Truman who got dumped at the vet with a note saying his owner wants the dog euthanized. Who would do such a ghastly thing? A clear, straightforward procedural begins, as Andy sets out to find the owner, who turns out to have been murdered. Despite his wealth and love of animals, Andy prides himself on being an ordinary guy the Wimsey comparison goes only so far. The narrative weakens a bit as the ending nears, but Rosenfelt's humor clicks. After buying a ticket to the pricey Hamilton, Andy broods, ""I could have bought something with bucket seats.""--Don Crinklaw Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Edgar finalist Rosenfelt's enjoyable 19th mystery featuring Paterson, N.J., defense attorney Andy Carpenter (after 2018's Deck the Hounds), Andy is incensed when his vet informs him that someone left a French bulldog called Buster at the vet's with instructions to put the dog down. But the dog's microchip says his name is Truman, and he belongs to James Haley, a documentary filmmaker who was recently murdered. The police arrest 20-year-old Joey Gamble for the crime, whom Haley interviewed in his apartment earlier in the evening of the murder. Since the man who brought Truman in to be euthanized was a known gang enforcer, Andy thinks that Joey has been set up, and so he mobilizes his formidable investigative team to help him find Haley's real killer. Rosenfelt does a great job of unfolding an intricate plot as Andy slowly builds a case to exonerate Joey. Andy is a smart, witty, relatable lead with a lot of heart, and he and his cohorts are a pleasure to spend time with. This is a treat for mystery readers and dog lovers. Author tour.
