In Rosenfelt's excellent seventh legal thriller to feature Paterson, N.J., defense attorney Andy Carpenter (after Play Dead), Andy takes on another canine client-Waggy, a Bernese mountain puppy, who's somehow connected to the murder of Walter Timmerman, "a semi-titan in the pharmaceutical industry." Andy represents the dog in a custody battle between Diana, Walter's widow, and her stepson, Steven, who's a suspect in his father's shooting. Shortly after Andy picks up Waggy from Diana, she dies in a bomb explosion at her house. When Steven's arrested for Diana's murder, Andy agrees to represent him. After Andy's police chief girlfriend, Laurie Collins, who's visiting from Wisconsin, is shot and wounded while playing with Waggy and Tara, Andy's golden retriever, Andy realizes Waggy was the real target. Rosenfelt injects this clever installment with courtroom twists, a peek into some scary DNA research and a romantic surprise. (Aug.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Cohabitating with his golden retriever, Tara, and yearning for his love, Laurie, a Wisconsin sheriff, Patterson, NJ, lawyer Andy Carpenter gets mixed up in a seventh canine crime (after Play Dead). And what a case it turns out to be. Ordered by a judge to represent Waggy, a Bernese Mountain dog, in a custody battle, Andy becomes entangled in murder, DNA, adultery, spies, explosions, and much more. Andy must figure out who is behind the killings, who is innocent, and why everyone wants Waggy. VERDICT Rosenfelt's newest entry in his Andy Carpenter series is a winner. In the same vein as Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar or Robert Crais's Elvis Cole, Rosenfelt's Andy has some great one-liners that complete his rich-lawyer, dog-loving persona. This hard-to-put-down read will please not just mystery fans (especially those who enjoy canine mysteries like Spencer Quinn's Dog On It) but others seeking the perfect summer escape. Put on the list of good reads.--Marianne Fitzgerald, Annapolis, MD Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
