"New Jersey defense lawyer Andy Carpenter spends as little time as possible working as a lawyer and as much time as he can working on his true passion, the Tara Foundation, the dog-rescue organization he runs with his frien Willie Miller. Lately, Andy has been especially involved in a county program in which prison inmates help train rescue dogs to make them more adoptable, benefiting both the dogs and the prisoners. One of the prisoners Andy has been working with is his client Brian Atkins, who is serving a five-year sentence for fraud but has just four months left until he's up for a parole hearing. Brian has been helping to train Boomer, an adorable fox terrier the Tara Foundation rescued from a neglectful owner. Brian and Boomer are clearly a terrific match. In fact, Andy hopes that Brian will adopt Boomer himself once his sentence is up. But one day, Andy is shocked to discover that Brian has used Boomer to make an ingenious escape, and man and dog are both long gone. The next day, Brian's wife and the man whose testimony helped convict Brian are both found murdered. Brian himself is caught and arrested for the crime, though he forcefully protests his innocence. Suddenly Andy finds himself with a client in desperate need of defense and a new dog in Boomer. And as he starts to dig deeper into the murder and the events leading up to it, Andy realizes he might be putting them all in far more danger than anyone knew."--

I thoroughly enjoy this author! If you enjoy "who dun its" without excessive blood and gore, great wit and humor, heartwarming characters, interesting surprises right to the final pages, then PLEASE pick up a book by David Rosenfelt. This is the most current in a series with the canine character Tara (and main protagonist Andy Carpenter) - it's well worth starting at the beginning and enjoy the journey through the series. I definitely recommend this book and all the others by Rosenfelt!
