Book Description

For six years Noah Galloway has lived with a horrible secret and the fear that his rebuilt life could be shattered at any moment. Now his dread has become a certainty, and he has been arrested for the arson murder of twenty-six people.

What he needs now is defense lawyer Andy Carpenter, who most definitely is not in the market for a new client. So Noah plays his hole card: a shared love for Andy's golden retriever, Tara, and the knowledge of what her life was like before Andy rescued her. Because Andy wasn't her first owner--Noah rescued Tara first, and when he wasn't able to care for her any longer, he did everything in his power to make sure that she was placed in the right home: Andy's.
With that knowledge, Andy has little choice but to take Noah on, and he soon learns that the long-ago event that may destroy Noah's life is only the beginning of an ongoing conspiracy that grows more deadly by the day. Andy will have to pull out all of his tricks to get to the bottom of this cold case turned white hot in One Dog Night, the latest in David Rosenfelt's popular mystery series.

Editorial Reviews


Praise for David Rosenfelt’s Andy Carpenter Mysteries

“Readers who enjoy a juicy courtroom mystery like the best of Perry Mason will find welcome surroundings in Dog Tags. What sets Rosenfelt apart from his legal compatriots is an underlying sense of laugh-out-loud humor mixed with suspense.... Rosenfelt’s love of furry friends shines in the story, creating a read that will appeal to the pet lover in everyone.”
Associated Press

“A funny, warmhearted mystery, New Tricks moves quickly and playfully—almost puppylike—through mounting crimes, a long-distance love affair, and a secret science project that threatens to thwart Carpenter’s best efforts. Three stars.”

“A well-plotted legal thriller packed with fistfights, shootings, explosions, murder, and gritty courtroom drama. . . New Tricks is a treat for dog lovers, but it’s also a great way for mystery lovers to spend time with a terrific storyteller.”
USA Today

Praise for David Rosenfelt’s Thrillers
“An absolutely irresistible hook… No one who picks up this greased-lightning account will rest till it’s finished.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on On Borrowed Time

“The author of seven Andy Carpenter novels offers yet another outstanding stand-alone novel, sure to please his many fans. Anyone who enjoyed Dennis Lehane’s Shutter Island will love this mind-boggling tale.”
Library Journal (starred review) on On Borrowed Time

“Dynamite thriller . . . Rosenfelt’s sly humor, breathless pacing, and terrific plot twists keep the pages spinning toward the showdown.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Down to the Wire

“This fast-paced and brightly written tale...

I like David Rosenfelt' books about lawyer Andy Carpenter very much. "One Dog Night", the latest entry, is an entertaining read, featuring all the qualities series followers have come to expect: Andy's self-deprecating and/or outrageous sense of humor ("In fact, of all the mass murderers I have ever met, I think I like Noah Galloway the best."), Andy's obsession with watching sports on television, Andy's reluctance to take cases, Andy's relationship with his live-in lover and private investigator Laurie Collins, Andy's nearly-impossible-to-prove-not-guilty client, Andy's courtroom antics, Andy's super-hacker accountant Sam Willis, and Andy's friends Detective Pete Stanton and newspaper editor Vince Sanders. Readers who appreciate Rosenfelt's formula for this series will like this book.

Marcus Clark, a very tough, very scary man who often investigates for Andy, and who is probably my favorite of all the series' minor characters, reveals a little more about himself to Andy on trip to Vegas. Edna, Andy's barely working secretary, and Hike Lang, the extraordinarily pessimistic lawyer who currently assists Andy when he does take a case, are also in the novel. Willie, a former client and Andy's partner in the Tara Foundation, which finds good homes for dogs, makes very minor appearances.

Of course, Tara, Andy's golden retriever makes several appearances. I'm an animal fanatic, so I consider Tara the central figure in each book in the series, no matter how much or how little she is in it. Once again she has a dog friend visiting her, this time her friend is Bailey of whom Andy comments: "Becky says she's a mastiff...but I think she might be a horse. I even think I might have bet on her once.

5.0 out of 5 stars great legal thriller July 10, 2011
For six years, three months and twenty-one days, Noah Galloway waited in anguish for this moment. The FBI arrests Galloway for an arson fire that killed twenty-six people. He will miss his beloved Becky and their nursery school child Adam, but in some ways is glad the end is in sight.

A recovered drug addict, Noah asks Patterson, New Jersey defense attorney Andy Carpenter to defend him. Andy says no as he does not take many cases on and besides Noah attempted to break into his home sometime before the deadly inferno. However Noah uses the Tara card to retain Andy as his lawyer; before the attorney rescued his golden retriever Tara, Noah had saved the dog and arranged for Andy to adopt the canine. Although Noah believes he is guilty of the arson mass homicides, he insists he remembers nothing about the blaze due to his drug haze. As Andy plays the court to buy time for his client, his `team" investigates what happened over six years ago.

This is a great legal thriller starring New Jersey's least enthused lawyer and his team of likable eccentrics who are crazier than usual. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the arrest is announced and never slows down until the final unlikely but endearing header. Series fans will relish one degree of Tara as the Retriever's first rescuer is legally defended by the canine's second rescuer.

In ONE DOG NIGHT smart-alecky defense attorney Andy Carpenter quits championing dogs in court long enough to defend a human client for once, even if it's a client with whom Andy has a canine connection. ONE DOG NIGHT demonstrates that coincidence doesn't only happen in Bollywood cinema. Noah Galloway is the man what started the ruin of Andy Carpenter's marriage. Some years ago, drug-addled Noah Galloway attempted to break into Andy's house, and Andy's gone-ballistic wife was quick to blame this on Andy's profession. This argument was the first crack in their wedded bliss. Andy Carpenter's divorced now.

Andy is independently wealthy and would rather while his time away not trying cases. He'd rather spend resources on his dog rescue group, the Tara Foundation. But it'd make for a hell of a dull narrative, and so here's Noah Galloway again, now a recovered drug addict but now arrested for 26 counts of murder committed six years ago. Noah Galloway believes he's guilty, is resigned to paying for his heinous crime. Except Andy learns that Noah was his golden retriever Tara's previous owner and he visits Noah's cell out of curiousity, and, Bob's your uncle, he's become Noah's defense attorney. His lazy secretary, Edna, is pretty cheesed at this development. She hates making coffee or copies or answering phones or doing pretty much anything secretarial.

Despite Noah Galloway's fatalistic attitude, Andy sniffs something odd about the case and it's not too long before he begins questioning his client's self-confessed guilt. The evidence simply doesn't add up. Author David Rosenfelt presses on with his recent habit of alternating chapters between Andy's first person perspective with those focused on the doings of other characters, and mostly villains.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Needed in One-dog Night October 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a huge David Rosenfelt fan and am cringing that I only give this one three stars. I bought this in hardcover and perhaps that why I felt the chapters were way too short. No question, it is an excellent plot with all his endearing characters, but David is so addictive he makes you want more. So, please write more about Andy & Pals, but flesh them out a bit more. We can take it and even figure them out if you complicate the subject matter a bit more. Please forgive me, David! Make no mistake folks, I highly recommend this book as interesting, funny as heck, and one that will leave you with a smile on your face!
