Read full description of the books Play Dead:I am so addicted to Andy Carpenter and Tara, his Golden Retriever. This is the sixth book in this series and I am loving the continual characters, writing style, humor and love that appear in every book David Rosenfelt writes.
We actually get the privilege of two court cases in this novel.
Reggie, an abandoned Golden Retriever has bitten his tormentor and stands on death row at the Tara Foundation that millionaires, Andy and Willy have founded. Once Andy gets wind of this, he cleverly absolves all charges against Reggie and Reggie is set free. A dog as a witness, how positively fun! As Reggie becomes a regular household member at Andy’s and Tara’s house, Reggie’s guardian, Karen Evans, appears.
Reggie’s owner, Richard Evans, is serving a life sentence for killing his fiancee’ on a boat. When Andy gets wind of this, he cleverly seizes this opportunity to do yet another ‘good deed’. There are lots of clues, twists and turns and some harrowing close calls as Andy and his team rush to find out the reason behind a conspiracy that holds Evans in prison for a crime he did not commit.
This book was full of suspenseful fun! Is this a proper sentence? No, but I like it and it sounds good to me!! As a dog lover, I was hoping to see more ‘dog’ related investigation techniques in this book, but sadly not much. Come on Mr. Rosenfelt, I know canines are smarter than Andy, use them! *chuckling*
I am still waiting to see a novel in this series that helps me understand and develop a better relationship with:
Kevin - The Law-Ndro-Mat guy who owns his own laundry cleaning business and gives out free law advice. He’s also a hypochondriac, go figure.
Edna - The neverending genius crossword puzzle solver who is Andy’s secretary but insists on being called an administrative assistant. Lazy broad.
Sam - The computer wiz that speaks in song lyrics whenever Andy needs him. Funny!!
Marcus - The humongous and scary looking bodyguard who was initially Laurie’s assistant before she moved. He speaks in grunts! *laughing*
*contented sigh* On to the next book, New Tricks.
Read information about the authorI am a novelist with 27 dogs.
I have gotten to this dubious position with absolutely no planning, and at no stage in my life could I have predicted it. But here I am.
My childhood was relentlessly normal. The middle of three brothers, loving parents, a middle-class home in Paterson, New Jersey. We played sports, studied sporadically. laughed around the dinner table, and generally had a good time. By comparison, "Ozzie and Harriet's" clan seemed bizarre.
I graduated NYU, then decided to go into the movie business. I was stunningly brilliant at a job interview with my uncle, who was President of United Artists, and was immediately hired. It set me off on a climb up the executive ladder, culminating in my becoming President of Marketing for Tri-Star Pictures. The movie landscape is filled with the movies I buried; for every "Rambo", "The Natural" and "Rocky", there are countless disasters.
I did manage to find the time to marry and have two children, both of whom are doing very well, and fortunately neither have inherited my eccentricities.
A number of years ago, I left the movie marketing business, to the sustained applause of hundreds of disgruntled producers and directors. I decided to try my hand at writing. I wrote and sold a bunch of feature films, none of which ever came close to being actually filmed, and then a bunch of TV movies, some of which actually made it to the small screen. It's safe to say that their impact on the American cultural scene has been minimal.
About fourteen years ago, my wife and I started the Tara Foundation, named in honor of the greatest Golden Retriever the world has ever known. We rescued almost 4,000 dogs, many of them Goldens, and found them loving homes. Our own home quickly became a sanctuary for those dogs that we rescued that were too old or sickly to be wanted by others. They surround me as I write this. It's total lunacy, but it works, and they are a happy, safe group.
