I recently finished narrating the mystery novel “New Tricks” by David Rosenfelt.  New tricks is part of the Andy Carpenter series by Mr. Rosenfelt, and the second of the series that I have narrated. 

All told it is an enjoyable story.  After all, it has pretty girls, loyal dogs, people being killed, an FBI connection and even international corporate espionage.   Oh, and did I mention lawyers?  I especially appreciated Andy Carpenter’s ever present sense of irony as well as his somewhat sarcastic wit.    And, still, Mr. Rosenfelt makes Andy a sympathetic character – not too different from someone you might know and like.

Here’s what the author’s website has to say about the book:

Andy Carpenter gains possesion of an adorable Bernese puppy whose owner was brutally murdered.  Few can rival Andy’s affection for dogs, and he will do whatever it takes to insure that this little pup doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.  However, his playful new friend is valued by several people, many of whom are willing to resort to violence to get what they want.  It will take more than Andy’s usual courtroom theatrics to save this dog, including a little help from his beloved golden retriever, Tara.  Andy soon discovers that anyone around him is in danger, including his long-time girlfriend Laurie, and he will have to muster all of his wits to save those he holds most dear.
