A lawyer by day, 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 there's been a break-in at the foundation building. 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, NJ and sure enough, they find the dog...right next to a dead body. The man had been murdered mere minutes before Andy and Willie arrived. Could it be coincidence? Or could the dog theft be connected to the killing?
Andy takes Cheyenne safely back to the foundation building. 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 break-in and the dog theft, he starts to wonder if Infante might actually be innocent. When Andy takes Infante on as a client and starts searching in earnest for evidence that will exonerate him, his discoveries terrify 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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I love the Andy Carpenter books; I love the characters, I love the dogs, I love the courtroom stuff. I would maybe deduct a half star because the author doesn't know the difference between robbery and burglary (and if he's writing a criminal attorney, he ought to!), but aside from that, this is a book I stayed up all night reading. Rosenfeld is the only author I know of who can get away not only with alternating POVs but alternating tenses--and I get so wrapped up in the story that I'm halfway through the book before I realize that's what he's doing.
I really liked this book when I finally got into it. For some reason, it just didn't peak my interest at first, and I set it aside for a couple of weeks. I do know enough about this author, however, to know that I was wrong. Once I picked it up again, I could not put it down. I highly recommend any of his books.
I really enjoy David Rosenfelt's novels - anybody who can weave dogs into a plot line is a good guy in my book. If you've read other Andy Carpenter novels, your familiar with the plot twist and pace, but it's comfortable and enjoyable as we see Andy grow up just a bit more.
