In New Tricks by D. Rosenfelt, Andy Carpenter is an attorney who does not practice law very often. He has enough money and usually takes on cases that involves dogs. He loves dogs and he takes on a case involving a Bernese mountain dog puppy (Waggy) whose owner is murdered. The dog is involved in a custody fight between the owners second wife and her stepson. David does not want the dog to fall into the wrong hands. Waggy has a secret that many people would love to obtain even if violence is needed. During the custody battle, Waggy will be staying with David and his dog Tara. When he goes to pick up the dog from the owners wife Diane Timmerman, she is killed in an explosion and the stepson (Steve) is accused of the murder. Steve asks David to represent him. David's dog Tara with the help of Davids girlfriend Laurie take care of Waggy. When Laurie becomes a target of an assassin, David realizes that the Waggy is the target
What secret does Waggy hold and why is does someone want him dead? I guess you have to read the book to find out.
This is the first book in the series that I had read, and I enjoyed New Tricks. There were twists and turns and an ending that I didn't expect. Mr. Rosenfelt wrote a legal thriller that is not only exciting but also humorous. I recommend this book because it is such a fun and interesting read.
