Bark of Night by
A thoroughly enjoyable legal mystery. This is number nineteen in the Andy Carpenter series about a lawyer who loves dogs. This is the first one I have read in the series and I had no problem getting acclimated. Easy-going and with spots of humor, this fast read has enough of a mystery to hold interest. I will be going back to read more of David Rosenfelt’s books.
