Barnes and Noble's Description:
Written by: David Rosenfelt
A German Shepherd police dog witnesses a murder and if his owner--an Iraq war vet and former cop-turned-thief--is convicted of the crime, the dog could be put down. Few rival Andy Carpenter's affection for dogs, and he decides to represent the poor canine. As Andy struggles to convince a judge that this dog should be set free, he discovers that the dog and his owner have become involved unwittingly in a case of much greater proportions than the one they've been charged with. Andy will have to call upon the unique abilities of this ex-police dog to help solve the crime and prevent a catastrophic event from taking place.
My Thoughts: This is my third David Rosenfelt and every book I read by him I love. He may be one of my favorite authors. Andy Carpenter is a loveable lawyer (if that's possible) and great character. I love that Rosenfelt uses dogs as witnesses in his books. Dog Tags was just as good as Play Dead and New Tricks (which I have also read). It was a quick and exciting read, though of course it made me want to read more Andy Carpenter books.
My Grade: A+
