One Dog Night
Release Date: July 5th 2011
or six years Noah Galloway has lived with a horrible secret and the fear that his rebuilt life could be shattered at any moment. Now his dread has become a certainty, and he has been arrested for the arson murder of twenty-six people.
What he needs now is defense lawyer Andy Carpenter, who most definitely is not in the market for a new client. So Noah plays his hole card: a shared love for Andy’s golden retriever, Tara, and the knowledge of what her life was like before Andy rescued her. Because Andy wasn’t her first owner—Noah rescued Tara first, and when he wasn’t able to care for her any longer, he did everything in his power to make sure that she was placed in the right home: Andy’s.
With that knowledge, Andy has little choice but to take Noah on, and he soon learns that the long-ago event that may destroy Noah’s life is only the beginning of an ongoing conspiracy that grows more deadly by the day. Andy will have to pull out all of his tricks to get to the bottom of this cold case turned white hot in the latest in David Rosenfelt’s popular mystery series.
“Andy Carpenter, laziest of lawyers, is back in “One Dog Night”. He’s always been a blessed anomaly in crime fiction. Given the herd of Byronic mopes who populate the genre, cheerful Andy is like a gulp of cold water on a steamy day. Rosenfelt peels back the layers of puzzlement ever so skillfully, tantalizing us throughout until, finally, both Andy and the reader are enlightened, simultaneously. A gem.”
— Don Crinklaw, Booklist
“Rosenfelt walks a line between pulse-pounding suspense and laugh-out-loud humor without tripping or falling. The courtroom scenes zing with authenticity and power. Andy Carpenter, his comrades, the supporting cast and even the dogs all ring true. Fans of the legal thriller genre will find comfort and reliability in Rosenfelt, one of the best in the business.”
