Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his golden retriever, Tara, work to free a man who risked it all to help a dog in need
Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his wife, Laurie, enjoy walking their dogs, Tara and Sebastian. By this point in their marriage, it’s routine. When out for one of their strolls, their simple ritual isn’t so simple anymore. Across the street, a man is mistreating his dog. Three things happen at once: Andy yells, Laurie runs to stop the abuse, and so does a closer passerby, who so thoroughly beats the owner that both are arrested when the cops arrive.
Andy scoops up the dog and takes him to the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization that’s always been his true passion. Meanwhile, at the police station, the passerby is identified as Matthew Jantzen, and he’s wanted for murder. Andy and Laurie are struck by the fact that Jantzen, a man on the run, would nevertheless intervene to help a dog, and decide to find out more.
Dog Eat Dog, the twenty-second installment in the Andy Carpenter series, features the charming cast of characters - old and new - that David Rosenfelt is known for and the dogs that accompany them.
About The Author
This audiobook had me laughing out loud, all the while it kept my attention.
The story begins in New Jersey, and ends in Maine, and starts with a man horribly abusing a dog. Before Attorney Andy Carpenter and his wife a retired policewoman, Laurie, can get there to help, a kind hearted man, Matthew Jantzen, actually risks everything to save the dog.
Of course, Andy ends up trying to help Matt, and we are off on a journey that really looks impossible. Can Andy save Matt? Well, can you fight DNA?
I am now looking forward to more in this series, it was that good!
