Description

Collared is the next novel in David Rosenfelt's witty, heartfelt mystery series sees attorney Andy Carpenter suddenly fostering a child and defending a close friend suspected of murderLawyer Andy Carpenter's true passion is the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization he runs with his friend Willie Miller. All kinds of dogs make their way to the foundation, and it isn't that surprising to find a dog abandoned at the shelter one morning, though it was accompanied by a mysterious anonymous note. But they are quite surprised when they scan the dog's embedded chip, and discover that they know this dog. He is the "DNA dog."Two and a half years ago, Jill Hickman was a single mother of an adopted baby. Her baby and dog were kidnapped in broad daylight in Eastside Park, and they haven't been seen since. A tip came in that ID'd a former boyfriend of Hickman's, Keith Wachtel, as the kidnapper. A search of his house showed no sign of the child but did uncover more incriminating evidence, and the clincher that generated Wachtel's arrest was some dog hair, notable since Wachtel did not have a dog. DNA tests showed conclusively that the hair belonged to Hickman's dog. Wachtel was convicted of kidnapping, but the dog and baby were never found.Now, with the reappearance of the dog, the case is brought back to light, and the search for the child renewed. Goaded by his wife's desire to help a friend and fellow mother and Andy's desire to make sure the real kidnapper is in jail, Andy and his team enter the case. But what they start to uncover is far more complicated and dangerous than they ever expected.

        Starred review from May 8, 2017
        Fans of Edgar-finalist Rosenfelt’s series featuring independently wealthy New Jersey lawyer and dog rescue enthusiast Andy Carpenter will get a jolt when they pick up the outstanding 16th entry (after 2016’s The Twelve Dogs of Christmas): Andy is contemplating letting his law license lapse. His alarmed wife, Laurie, who loves him dearly, doesn’t relish the prospect of having to live with a very bored and very cranky spouse. Luckily, a mysterious woman abandons a border collie at Andy’s dog rescue organization, and a complicated case unfolds that requires the services of a licensed attorney. An implanted microchip identifies the dog as belonging to businesswoman Jill Hickman, whose infant son was abducted from a park three years earlier along with the dog. Neither was ever found until now. With the animal’s sudden reappearance, the investigation is reopened, and Andy, plus his crack team of quirky irregulars, gets on the Hickman kidnapping case. Smart plot twists ensue, and everyone—Andy, Laurie, and readers—are all the happier for it. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House.

        Ebulliently inventive Rosenfelt finds yet another way to involve unwilling Paterson attorney Andy Carpenter (The Twelve Dogs of Christmas, 2016, etc.) in a case in which one of the leading roles is played by a canine.Two and a half years ago, Jill Hickman, who'd shot to success as the founder of the retail DNA corporation Finding Home, suffered a bitter loss when someone abducted her adopted infant, Dylan, and her border collie, Cody, to boot. Spurred largely by the description of the man who grabbed the child and dog and the car they drove off in, provided by Dylan's nanny, Teresa Mullins, the police convicted Jill's former fiance, Keith Wachtel, Finding Home's chief chemist, of kidnapping. Nobody has seen Dylan from that day to this, but now someone has seen Cody, who's been left outside the Tara Foundation, the charitable organization Andy uses to disperse his oversized wealth to the dogs of New Jersey. Not content to reunite Cody with his grateful owner, Andy decides that his sudden return amounts to new evidence in the case against Keith and works like a beaver to get it reopened. The trail of Teresa Mullins, who's also disappeared without a trace, leads Andy's associate, Hike, to South Carolina, where a woman who has an awful lot in common with Teresa has been burned to death in her own house. And so to court, where Andy cheerfully acknowledges: "I have never been involved in a case in which the key witness in a trial is a dead nanny." Rosenfelt's matchless gift for feather-light exposition that hurtles along without ever feeling rushed or foggy allows him to keep the complications coming until nearly the end. It's only the denouement that feels as if a lesser ghostwriter, perhaps an obliging pooch, had taken over.
