K Team
by Rosenfelt, David






"In David Rosenfelt's newest series - a spinoff of the much beloved Andy Carpenter mysteries - Andy's wife forms an investigative team with a former detective and his German shepherd partner. Andy Carpenter's wife, Laurie, was a cop, a good one. Now she helps out on Andy's cases while also raising Ricky, their son. But she's been chafing to jump back into investigating on her own, and when her former partner and his German shepherd K-9 partner come to her with a proposal, she's in. From the author of thebestselling Andy Carpenter mysteries comes a spectacular new series with a K-9 main character"-





DAVID ROSENFELT is the Edgar-nominated and Shamus Award-winning author of more than a dozen Andy Carpenter novels, including One Dog Night, Collared, and Deck the Hounds; the Doug Brock thriller series, which starts with Fade to Black; and stand-alone thrillers including Heart of a Killer and On Borrowed Time. Rosenfelt and his wife live in Maine with an ever-changing pack of rescue dogs. Their epic cross-country move with the 25 of these dogs, culminating in the creation of the Tara Foundation, is chronicled in Dogtripping.





This is the first in a new series by crime novelist and dog lover Rosenfelt, best known for his novels starring wisenheimer lawyer Andy Carpenter. This series spins off that one, moving Andy's wife, Laurie Carpenter, from a supporting role into the spotlight. Laurie, a former cop missing the action, reinvents herself as a PI, along with retired K-9 cop Corey Douglas and a retired K-9, a German shepherd named Simon Garfunkel. Marcus Clark, the mysteriously inarticulate muscle man from the earlier series, rounds out the group. Their first client is a federal judge surprised when a whopping $390,000 turns up on his bank statement. Then comes a photo of His Honor smooching a hooker. He claims a frame-up, and soon bodies pile up. It's a good yarn, but Corey is too bland to deserve all the space Rosenfelt gives him, and the shifting points of view are confusing. Simon is the real star; watch him in a dramatic fight as he soars through the air and lands on the killer. We want more Simon in action. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

The creator of Paterson attorney Andy Carpenter's dog-friendly mysteries launches a new series starring several of Andy's friends and enemies, including the canine client he represented in Dachshund Through the Snow (2019), with a supporting role for Andy himself. Judge Henry "Hatchet" Henderson, whose courtroom has provided the arena for so many of Andy's shenanigans, is threatened with blackmail, and he wants the newly formed K Team—retired cop Corey Douglas; his canine partner, Simon Garfunkel; Andy's fearsome investigator, Marcus Clark; and Andy's wife, Laurie Collins—to identify and neutralize the threat, which he plans to keep confidential by paying Andy a dollar to take the case as his lawyer. At first the team's inquiries into which of Henderson's recent cases (the manslaughter conviction of ex-boxer John Lowry? The freeing of self-confessed embezzler Nina Williams on a legal technicality? The acquittal of Ponzi-scheming broker Drew Lockman?) provoked the blackmail lead nowhere. Then they lead to hints of a financial manipulation conspiracy on a grand scale. By the time they lead to Equi-net, an electronic communications network that handles securities trades for people who'd like to keep them private, five people h ave been murdered, with more slated to follow. The one place they don't lead is to continued confidentiality, as Henderson learns to his sorrow. The net of deceptions, double-crosses, and professional assassinations gets pretty knotty, but although the conspiracy involves an awful lot of guilty parties, the gimmick behind all their criminal activity is appealingly simple. Through it all, Corey serves as an investigator and narrator every bit as ebullient as Andy and a lot more diligent. In fact, longtime fans may wonder why Rosenfelt saw the need to create a new series that follows the pattern of Andy's 20 successful cases so closely. If he thought Paterson needed more wiseacre crime fighters, he was undoubtedly right. Don't be fooled by the brand-new packaging. If you liked Rosenfelt's rollicking previous series, you'll like this one too. Copyright Kirkus 2020 Kirkus/BPI Communications. All rights reserved.
