Dog Day Afternoon

Dog Day Afternoon

Dog Day Afternoon is another pleasant mystery with reluctant attorney Andy Carpenter and a myriad of supporting players. Marcus is Andy’s muscle, who keeps his personal life, well, personal. Until now. He brings a defendant, Nick, to Andy who seems to have the deck stacked against him.

Most of Nick’s office is murdered in a single assailant mass shooting. Nick disappears for days beginning the day of the shooting. The shooter revealed a tattoo on his arm that looks exactly like Nick’s as well as wearing Nick’s brand of shoes. Andy eventually believes Nick’s story of strangers kidnapping and framing him for murder. But how will he convince a jury?

Dog Day Afternoon is slightly different than most of the books in this series. First of all, there is no mafia at all in this one, which is a welcome change. Second, dogs are mostly used as background rather than as an integral part of the story. I truly missed this part of the book. However, it is still an enjoyable summer read. 4 stars!

Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
