For six years Noah Galloway has lived with a horrible secret and the fear that his rebuilt life could be shattered at any moment. Now his dread has become a certainty, and he has been arrested for the arson murder of twenty-six people.

What he needs now is defense lawyer Andy Carpenter, who most definitely is not in the market for a new client. So Noah plays his hole card: a shared love for Andy's golden retriever, Tara, and the knowledge of what her life was like before Andy rescued her. Because Andy wasn't her first owner--Noah rescued Tara first, and when he wasn't able to care for her any longer, he did everything in his power to make sure that she was placed in the right home: Andy's.

With that knowledge, Andy has little choice but to take Noah on, and he soon learns that the long-ago event that may destroy Noah's life is only the beginning of an ongoing conspiracy that grows more deadly by the day. Andy will have to pull out all of his tricks to get to the bottom of this cold case turned white hot in the latest in David Rosenfelt's popular mystery series.

Sound Commentary
* Starred Review. The courtroom scenes are riveting; Rosenfelt's series characters are very likeable as always. Master narrator Grover Gardner's familiar voice adds just the right touch to this warm and witty mystery. Gardner's twang and quick pace suit Andy's personality and first-person narration, the comfortable interactions between Andy and the other characters, and the suspense of the rest of the story.

"One Dog Night successfully blends murder with a tongue-in-cheek tone, a Rosenfelt specialty. Narrator Grover Gardner immerses listeners in Rosenfelt's story, which is filled with one-liners and zingers that play off of the murders of 26 people... Gardner is at his best delivering Andy's wiseacre lines and creating just the right feel for the story's New Jersey setting."

"Gardner gives a convincing performance of the lazy, wisecracking New Jersey attorney. His sense of comedic timing and Jersey accent heighten the humorous effect of Andy's incessant bellyaching."

"Gardner sounds like he's having a good time reading, and it's obvious why he's won so many awards. There's serious stuff here, but also lots of fun in this fast-moving, upbeat story."
