Few can rival attorney Andy Carpenter's affection for golden retrievers, especially his own beloved Tara. After he astonishes a New Jersey courtroom by successfully appealing another golden's death sentence, Andy discovers that this gentle dog is a key witness to a murder that took place five years before. Andy pushes the boundaries of the law even further as he struggles to free an innocent man by convincing an incredulous jury to take canine testimony seriously. It will take all the tricks Andy's fertile mind can conceive to get to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and murder, and save a dog's life--and his own--in the process.

If you love dogs you will love this whole series of books. This one was really good, with like-able characters and a good detailed plot. It was also quite humorous in places.

Another great instalment in this series, starting with the funny & clever premise of saving a pound puppy from "death row". The regulars are all here with some new bad guys thrown to keep things interesting. If you like one of these books, you'll like them all as they are always fast paced, funny & a little scary.
