Description

"Bark of Night is a treat, especially for those who love thrillers and dogs." — Associated Press

The next novel in David Rosenfelt's witty, heartfelt mystery series featuring lawyer Andy Carpenter and his faithful golden retriever, Tara.

When defense lawyer Andy Carpenter's veterinarian asks to speak to him privately at the checkup of his golden retriever, Tara, the last thing Andy expects is Truman. Tiny, healthy, French bulldog Truman was dropped off days ago with instructions to be euthanized by a man everyone thought was his owner. But now the owner is nowhere to be found.
Andy is furious. Who would want to euthanize a perfectly healthy dog with no explanation? He is willing to whisk Truman away to the Tara Foundation, the dog-rescue organization which is Andy's true passion. They will find a home for Truman. But that's not all the vet tells Andy. Thanks to Truman's chip, it's discovered that the man wasn't Truman's owner at all . . . Truman's real owner has been murdered.
It's now up to Andy – with help from his loyal sidekick Tara, Truman and the rest of the gang – to solve this case. In the latest in the popular Andy Carpenter mystery series, David Rosenfelt's charmingly clever wit and love of dogs are back and better than ever.

        May 20, 2019
        In Edgar finalist Rosenfelt’s enjoyable 19th mystery featuring Paterson, N.J., defense attorney Andy Carpenter (after 2018’s Deck the Hounds), Andy is incensed when his vet informs him that someone left a French bulldog called Buster at the vet’s with instructions to put the dog down. But the dog’s microchip says his name is Truman, and he belongs to James Haley, a documentary filmmaker who was recently murdered. The police arrest 20-year-old Joey Gamble for the crime, whom Haley interviewed in his apartment earlier in the evening of the murder. Since the man who brought Truman in to be euthanized was a known gang enforcer, Andy thinks that Joey has been set up, and so he mobilizes his formidable investigative team to help him find Haley’s real killer. Rosenfelt does a great job of unfolding an intricate plot as Andy slowly builds a case to exonerate Joey. Andy is a smart, witty, relatable lead with a lot of heart, and he and his cohorts are a pleasure to spend time with. This is a treat for mystery readers and dog lovers. Author tour.

        June 1, 2019
        A dog finds yet another way to drag Paterson lawyer Andy Carpenter into his 19th recorded murder case, this one with even more than 19 fatalities. Andy's vet, Dr. Dan Dowling, is distressed because somebody's dropped off a French bulldog in perfectly good health and paid to have him euthanized even though a chip implanted in the dog indicates that he belongs to someone else. Naturally, Andy overrules the order, takes the dog home, and thinks no more about it--until he realizes that documentary filmmaker James Haley, who's just been shot to death, was the real owner of the bulldog, whose name is Truman, and that the man who ordered Truman's death was almost certainly Haley's killer. It's too late for the police to arrest George Adams, the mob enforcer Dowling's receptionist recognizes as the man who wanted Truman euthanized, because he's already dead, executed along with his wife in suburban Philadelphia. The Paterson police, knowing no better, meanwhile arrest Joey Gamble for Haley's murder because he visited Haley that night, his prints are all over Haley's place, and they find the murder weapon in his home. So despite Andy's well-established resistance to the practice of law (Deck the Hounds, 2018, etc.), he agrees to defend Joey. The case looks tough because the evidence, though it's all circumstantial, is impressive. So Andy's only chance is to tie Haley's murder to the shooting of Christopher Tolbert, a homeless man in nearby Clifton, and to a total of 18--no, make that 26--oddly similar deaths across the country in what turns out to be a startlingly widespread criminal conspiracy. One of the best hooks ever by an author who specializes in them, along with a constant stream of appealingly throwaway wisecracks and one of Rosenfelt's most successful portrayals of the professional criminals whom he often loves not wisely but too well. Even dog haters should lap it up.

        Growing weary of the detective hero with a wrecked marriage, a botched career, and a drinking problem? Try Rosenfelt's series hero, Andy Carpenter, who is probably as close to Lord Peter Wimsey as the modern American crime genre can get. He's rich, he pretends to be dimmer than he is, he refuses to take anything seriously. Until the first corpse appears. This time it's a potential corpse, and it's a dog, a likable little French bulldog called Truman who got dumped at the vet with a note saying his owner wants the dog euthanized. Who would do such a ghastly thing? A clear, straightforward procedural begins, as Andy sets out to find the owner, who turns out to have been murdered. Despite his wealth and love of animals, Andy prides himself on being an ordinary guy?the Wimsey comparison goes only so far. The narrative weakens a bit as the ending nears, but Rosenfelt's humor clicks. After buying a ticket to the pricey Hamilton, Andy broods, "I could have bought something with bucket seats."(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2019, American Library Association.)

        July 1, 2019

        In this 19th "Andy Carpenter" mystery (following Deck the Hounds), the New Jersey lawyer is called into his vet's office for some legal advice. Someone has brought in a French bulldog to be put down. However, the dog turns out to be healthy, and his microchip reveals that his name is Truman and his owner has been murdered. A young man has already been arrested for the crime, and Andy certainly doesn't want to get involved. Pressure from his wife and concern for Truman soon propel him into the young man's defense. A mob hit man's body found in a local river and several suspicious deaths of homeless men complicate the case, which broadens to include Philadelphia, Boston, and Florida's Gulf Coast. Andy and his legal team must figure out whodunit and why before the trial is over. VERDICT Fans of the series will enjoy this latest installment, and newcomers won't be put off since not too much prior information is required to jump in. One shortcoming of the book is that Truman, the catalyst for the whole plot, is whisked offstage to the Tara Foundation, Carpenters' dog-rescue center, until his happy ending.

        When his veterinarian is instructed to euthanize healthy French bulldog Truman, understandably angry defense lawyer Andy Carpenter agrees to his dog-rescue organization, the Tara Foundation, as an alternative. Then Truman's microchip reveals that the man who dropped him off was not his owner, who is later found to have been murdered. From the Shamus Award-winning author.
