Publisher Description

Lawyer Andy Carpenter’s true passion is the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization he runs with his friend Willie Miller. All kinds of dogs make their way to the foundation. So it’s no surprise to find a dog abandoned at the shelter one morning, although it was accompanied by a mysterious anonymous note.

But they are quite surprised when they scan the dog’s embedded microchip and discover that they know this dog. He is the “DNA dog.”

Two and a half years ago, Jill Hickman was a single mother of an adopted baby. Her baby and dog were kidnapped in broad daylight in Eastside Park, and they haven’t been seen since. A tip came in that ID’d a former boyfriend of Hickman’s, Keith Wachtel, as the kidnapper. A search of his house showed no sign of the child but did uncover more incriminating evidence, and the clincher that generated Wachtel’s arrest was some dog hair, notable since Wachtel did not have a dog.

DNA tests showed conclusively that the hair belonged to Hickman’s dog. Wachtel was convicted of kidnapping, but the dog and baby were never found. Now, with the reappearance of the dog, the case is brought back to light and the search for the child renewed.

Goaded by his wife’s desire to help a friend and fellow mother and Andy’s desire to make sure the real kidnapper is in jail, Andy and his team enter the case. But what they start to uncover is far more complicated and dangerous than they ever expected.

"Full review: 50 to 5000 charactersCollared by David Rosenfelt is yet another brilliant part in this unresistable series. Andy Carpenter yet again uncovers secrets and plots that are hard to imagine he is going to find, but as per normal, he notices things we readers never suspect are there! I love this whole series, this was no exception, I look very much forward to the next book! "

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    — AudioFile
  • “The ‘Andy Carpenter’ series…should come with warnings: ‘Read with Caution, Extremely Addicting.’ The latest book in the series, Collared, is no exception. The writing is consistently unique and superb. And the laughs never stop.”

    — Huffington Post

  • Narrator Grover Gardner is once again perfect as the cocky, headstrong lawyer. With a fitting regional accent, he captures Carpenter’s intellect, hilarious and biting sarcasm, and ability to remain cool under pressure.

    — AudioFileon Earphones Award Winner Who Let the Dog Out?
  • David Rosenfelt deftly works in wry humor, a love of dogs and New Jersey gangsters in Hounded, his highly entertaining 12th legal thriller…[Rosenfelt] continues to explore Andy's personality, allowing him to change and grow in each novel.

    — Associated Press
  • Terrific… How does Rosenfelt manage to construct such clever and complex plots, tie them all together, make you love Andy more with every novel, and bombard you with non-stop humor, all at the same time? Only Rosenfelt can pull off that kind of quadruple-play. His is an absolutely unique mystery/comedy talent.
