Edgar-finalist Rosenfelt’s riveting sixth legal thriller (after 2006’s Dead Center) brings independently wealthy Paterson, N.J., lawyer Andy Carpenter to the defense of a very special domestic violence victim, Yogi, a golden retriever alleged to have bitten its owner. Andy uses the court system to spring Yogi from an animal shelter’s death row and adopt him, adding the dog to a small family that includes longtime pet golden Tara. But when the gang goes for a walk that leads to a joyful reunion between Yogi and a woman named Karen Evans, Andy learns Yogi is actually Reggie, presumed dead five years earlier after the conviction of Karen’s brother, US Customs Inspector Richard Evans, for the murder of his fiancée, Stacy Harriman. Suspecting Richard’s innocence, Andy tackles the case like a dog on a chew toy, undeterred by an intricate web of deception involving a possible government coverup. No shaggy dog story, this puppy’s alive with reliable Rosenfelt wit and heart. Download and start listening now!

    " This is the second book that I have read in this series and I have to say that I am enjoying this series. It seems like you don't have to read these books in order and they are very similar to a cozy mystery books. The main character Andy Carpentar and the dogs are stars of these books. Can't wait to read more. "
