Milo worked in law enforcement for seven years before he was forced to retire. With the skills sets that he had mastered there was only one logical choice for his next career move. He partnered-up and became a thief.
As most thieves will tell, getting pinched goes with the territory. Milo is caught stealing an envelope from a victim who's killed during the commission of the crime. Milo is able to hide the evidence before he is caught and put in the slammer. Milo has gotten evolved in something that is way out of his league; because how many jailed suspects get a federally ordered, 24-hr. armed guard outside their holding cell? Milo needs to get sprung. He needs a good attorney. But Milo's a dog.
Enter dog-lover and independently wealthy lawyer, Andy Carpenter. As a favor to a friend of his on the police force, Andy reluctantly agrees to defend Milo and his jailed partner, Billy Zimmerman; another ex-lawman. Someone is out to silence the two suspects. Andy slowly gets suckered-in by a highly intelligent German Shepherd and his war-hero master.
What follows in this 8th book in the Andy Carpenter series. It is a quick-paced, clever mystery. Just the chapters about a lawyer arguing his defendant's bail hearing in open court to a judge is worth the read. A terrorist bombing that happened in Iraq during the war is the focal point of this mystery. Billy Zimmerman lost a leg because of it and soon might be framed for murder being sold as revenge.
All of Carpenter's sidekicks are back and the wisecracks are plentiful. Rosenfelt, in a real-life, is a protector of Golden Retrievers. His love of dogs is a recurring theme in many of his novels. Animal and mystery book lovers will be thrilled reading his latest edition.
