Take a wisemouthed lawyer who can afford to take semi retirement by only representing innocent clients while supporting an animal shelter, add in that his wife is no longer law enforcement but works as his private investigator and more and you have the baseline for this convoluted mystery. There are many other people who help Andy find out what the truth really is and make it courtroom admissible. Well-crafted murder mystery!
Lots of twists and turns in the plot and the characters certainly are, but there's no need for spoilers or an attempt at a summary. I found it to be a real brain grabber and was surprised to find that it is the most recent in a series! At no time does the reader feel lost or as if missing background info.
Grover Gardner narrates this complicated snarkfest very well!
Finding this book was a treat — I thought I’d read the whole Andy Carpenter series. The reader, Grover Gardner, is one I’ve not heard before. He portrays Andy in a nasal whine, slightly squeaky and faintly ridiculous. This is not the Andy Carpenter I “know.” I’m debating whether I can listen to this 7-hour recording without beginning to ridicule and perhaps dislike Andy. MacMillan Audio made a baaaad choic of narrator!
Funny and a great plot just as expected. This was one of his funniest yet. And to see Andy Carpenter as a dad is a great stretch for him.
The plot line was solid and the characters were well developed, but Andy has a really smart ass mouth that would be amusing in far smaller doses. And the story is bloody violent.

"Lawyer Andy Carpenter is surprised when Willie Millier, Andy's partner at their dog rescue operation, the Tara Foundation, calls to say the alarm has gone off at the foundation building. There has clearly been a break-in, and a dog has been stolen. All of the dogs that the Tara Foundation rescues are given collars with GPS tracking capabilities, so Andy and Willie know they'll be able to track down the missing dog. They follow the signal to a house in downtown Paterson, and sure enough, the dog is there...standing right next to a dead body. The man had been gruesomely murdered mere minutes earlier. Could it be a coincidence? Or could the dog theft somehow be connected to the killing? Andy takes the dog safely back to the foundation building, and that should be the end of it, but his curiosity--and his desire to keep the dog from further harm--won't let him stop there. Andy finds himself looking into the circumstances surrounding the break-in and the dog theft, and what he starts to uncover makes him believe that the cops may have just arrested the wrong man for the crime. 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"--

Other than that, it's a story about a lawyer and some dogs, a few senior citizens in a computer club, and some other regulars. If this doesn't sound like an interesting read, ignore me and read it anyway. I won't waste your time telling you what it's about, because it really doesn't matter. ( )
