Andy Carpenter is back in the dog house. Having once defended a golden retriever, a local judge naturally thinks of the wisecracking lawyer when a Bernese puppy becomes the object of a custody battle. Andy is OK with this, except that he is nearly killed picking up the dog and soon finds himself in the middle of a double-murder defense. Fun and fast, with quirky characters, plot twists, and dialogue to keep you smiling. A great summer whodunnit for mystery lovers and dog lovers alike.
