In Bark of Night, Andy is consulted by his vet about a healthy dog he has been asked to euthanize. The dog’s real owner has been murdered, and Andy is once again defending the suspect. Andy never wants a client, but he just can’t say no when someone really needs his help, especially with the influence of his wife, Laurie. The smart-aleck, sarcastic style, the zany crew of characters, and the true warmth of the friends and the dogs always make the Andy Carpenter books a pleasure to read. Added to all of that is a great mystery to be solved! Enjoy this with your best furry friend by your side. ( )

***** Andy Carpenter is the snarkiest un lawyer you'll ever meet. His greatest fans are dogs, his wife, and his son. Wife is a private investigator and former homicide lieutenant with lots of connections, Andy is a defense lawyer who (sort of) picks his cases, hates going to court, and always wins for the good guys (his clients). The publisher's blurb is pretty good and sets up the early part of the story, but it's hard to say more without doing the spoiler thing. Whether you've read any of the earlier books or not, you can't miss with this one. But I have to warn you, I read a fairly recent one and promptly headed off to get the rest!
I requested and received a free ebook copy from St Martin's Press/Minotaur Books via NetGalley. Thank you! ( )

If you’ve read any of this series then you’re familiar with Andy Carpenter, the wisecracking MC. He’s been trying to quit practicing law pretty much since he took the bar exam & it’s not going well. It’s just that those pesky clients keep showing up at his door. Luckily for us, it looks like his retirement plans have been foiled again.

When he takes beloved dog Tara for a visit to the vet, somehow he ends up leaving with a new client. He’s a little French guy named Truman & he’s a good boy, yes he is. He’s also an orphan after his human was recently murdered.

Through bizarre circumstances, Truman ended up being brought in for euthanasia & if there’s one thing Andy hates more than working it’s someone throwing away a perfectly good pupper. He begins looking into the owner’s death & before he knows it, he’s representing a 20 year old local man charged with murder. Now he just has to break the news to his team. All the usual cast is back & respond in typical fashion. Sam is elated, Edna is horrified & Hike believes they’re doomed. As for Marcus…well, who knows what he thinks. Probably something scary.

Truman’s owner was a guy named James Haley. He made his living shooting documentaries on various subjects. No one is sure just why he was in Paterson, New Jersy but odds are good he filmed something he shouldn’t have & it’s made a bunch of of seriously bad guys very nervous. In alternate chapters we spend time with these paragons of society & gradually learn what they’re up to. Needless to say, it’s not good. In fact it’s a plan that has repercussions for communities right across the country & before long, bodies are popping up all over. Andy & his crew will need the help of law enforcement on all levels if they’re to survive long enough to clear their client.

This series has become an annual delight for me. If you haven’t picked up any of these books, stop reading immediately & get thee to a bookstore. There’s a reason the series has made it to #19. This outing has everything required for a fast paced, entertaining read….great cast of characters, twisty suspense, plenty of dogs & a guy named Fat Tony. Can’t ask for more than that. ( )
