Excerpt from Dog Tags

Don’t miss my $0.99 promo on Those Who Believe or Goodreads Giveaway of an autographed copy of Cynthia Has a Secret!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

Do you like dogs? Do you like them better than humans? Andy Carpenter does. I read Dog Tags, the eighth book in David Rosenfelt’s Andy Carpenter series, and it was great. Funny, engaging, a legal suspense/private eye story with lots of emphasis on dogs. Very engaging characters.

I take out my cell phone and point it in the general direction of the dog and the officers surrounding him. “I’m videotaping this,” I say. “Anything happens to that dog, it’s going viral.”

Of course, I barely know how to use the cell phone, and I can’t imagine it has video capabilities, but it’s dark out, and the officers would have no way of knowing that.

A German Shepherd police dog witnesses a murder and if his owner–an Iraq war vet and former cop-turned-thief–is convicted of the crime, the dog could be put down. Few rival Andy Carpenter’s affection for dogs, and he decides to represent the poor canine. As Andy struggles to convince a judge that this dog should be set free, he discovers that the dog and his owner have become involved unwittingly in a case of much greater proportions than the one they’ve been charged with. Andy will have to call upon the unique abilities of this ex-police dog to help solve the crime and prevent a catastrophic event from taking place.
