An Andy Carpenter Mystery (Book 23)
Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his wife, Laurie, enjoy walking their dogs. When out for one of their strolls, their simple ritual isn't so simple anymore. Across the street, a man is mistreating his dog. Andy yells, Laurie runs to stop the abuse, and so does a closer passerby, who thoroughly beats the owner. Andy takes the dog to the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization that's his true passion. At the police station, the passerby is identified as Matthew Jantzen, and he's wanted for murder. Andy and Laurie are struck by the fact that Jantzen, a man on the run, would intervene to help a dog, and decide to find out more.
