From Publishers' Weekly:

Series fans and newcomers alike will welcome Rosenfelt's eighth comic legal thriller to feature Paterson, N.J., defense lawyer Andy Carpenter (after New Tricks). Billy Zimmerman, an ex-cop and Iraq war vet who lost a leg to a suicide bomber, has used Milo, a German shepherd and a former police dog, as his partner in snatch and run crimes. When a snatch that goes badly awry results in a murder charge for Billy and impoundment for Milo, Andy takes on Milo as a client. Andy, whose courtroom antics always delight, makes his bid for Milo's freedom before formidable Judge Horace Catchings. Billy's case presents greater challenges, with tendrils reaching back to Iraq and involving payoffs, hit men, and even a possible national security threat. Oddball regular characters, like Willie Miller, who tries his hand at detecting, and Marcus Clark, "the most-menacing-looking human being" Carpenter has ever seen, add to the fun. (Aug.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

From Library Journal:

Rosenfelt's eighth entry in the Andy Carpenter series (after New Tricks) is as entertaining as his previous titles. The familiar characters are back: Andy, a lawyer who would prefer doing anything to working; Willie, still managing the Tara Foundation (dog rescue); girlfriend and PI Laurie; and Marcus, the extra-large security guard. This time, Andy is tempted into representing Milo, a retired German shepherd police dog that had been turned into the perfect thief by Billy Zimmerman, an injured Iraqi war veteran and ex-cop. When found at the scene of a murder, Billy was charged with the crime, and Milo was put under lock and key. Always a sucker for a dog, Andy comes to his rescue and also ends up representing Billy. Verdict Rosenfelt's dry wit can be laugh-out-loud funny, and his hero's latest adventures will appeal to readers of Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series.
