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.

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.

The whole world is certain that Noah Galloway set fire to a building killing twenty-six people including six kids. Only his wife and Andy Carpenter have a different opinion. Andy's not entirely sure of Noah's innocent, but he thinks he may be innocent, and anyway since Noah once owned Andy's dog Tara, and loved her, Andy feels obliged to defend the man.

The case burns out to be bigger, much bigger, than one episode of mass murder. Andy soon finds himself meeting with scary gangsters, dealing with the FBI, and following a trail of blackmail and executions to a frightening denouement.

There are some very humorous situations...

Sam Willis, Andy's accountant and computer hacker supreme, has always wanted to get out in the field and brandish his gun. He gets his wish in this book.

Andy needs a whole crew of crack hackers for this case, so Sam puts his star students on it – four elderly Jewish computer whizzes.

Marcus, Andy's muscle, tosses thugs through the air and consumes enormous quantities of food, as usual. It's always a pleasure to watch Marcus in action.

The plot is clever and complex. And Andy's wisecracks and oddball humor keep the mood light, despite the high body count. My only complaint about these books is that they're so much fun to read, they go too fast.
