Andy Carpenter is a happy curmudgeon. Wealthy enough not to work, he only takes a legal case when he feels compelled to do so. In this case, the defendant is responsible for Andy finding the love of his life - his dog, Tara. Noah, a former drug user, is accused of setting a devastating fatal fire 6 years ago. Noah remembers nothing of the incident, given his drug-induced state, but Andy quickly begins to suspect that Noah is innocent and sets out, with the help of his friends, to prove he's been set up. Rosenfelt keeps the plot ticking along, dropping pieces of a puzzle that Andy & Co. eventually put together. Andy is an appealing character, both lovable and sarcastic. Even his bad moods are funny. Unlike dog mysteries, Rosenfelt's dog doesn't help solve the crime but merely helps Andy relax and think on their leisurely walks together.
