Andy Carpenter rescues one client from prison and another from
Death Row in his most ambitious case yet.During a torrential
rainstorm five years ago, Coast Guard officers boarded a boat four
miles off the New Jersey Coast to find one occupant, U.S. Customs
inspector Richard Evans, comatose from an overdose of sleeping
pills and the other two, Richard's fiancee Stacy Harriman and his
dog Reggie, missing. Long before they identified Stacy's body,
washed ashore three weeks later, they'd already arrested Richard
for murder, and he was tried and convicted. But a startling new
piece of evidence emerges when Andy (Dead Center, 2006, etc.) tries
to save Yogi, a golden retriever who bit his abusive owner, from
being put down: Richard's sister Karen identifies Yogi as Reggie.
She proves his identity to Andy, who in an amusing courtroom
sequence proves it to a judge. Presumably Reggie got off the boat
because somebody took him off. Who was that somebody, what was his
or her role in Stacy's murder and Richard's near-death, why haven't
the authorities found any trace of him or her, and how can Andy do
better? The stakes are raised but the answers obscured by the news
that both the FBI and the New Jersey mob are so interested in the
case that one is bugging Andy's phone and the other shooting at
him.A steadily absorbing journey through layers and layers of
deception. Only the very last surprise fizzles. (Kirkus Reviews)
Andy Carpenter rescues a golden retriever from being put down and
finds that the dog was supposed to have died five years before
during an incident that resulted in his master being convicted of
murdering his fiancee at sea. Encouraged by the prisoner's sister,
Andy endeavours to reopen the case by using the dog as a witness in
court. He finds himself the object of violent interest by persons
unknown who very much do not want a new trial, resulting in car
chases, attempted assassination and dog-napping. Andy displays his
usual court-room theatrics, but he has to bring in the Mafia before
he gets to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and
