1 review about New Tricks: A Book

This is a Fun Tale With Andy Trying to Defend and Innocent Man and Protect a Dog!

This is a great tale that keeps you guessing until practically the last page.  Andy must defend a client he knows for sure is innocent but cannot use any of the proof that his client is innocent because of the way it was obtained.  Andy must summon all his witty, retort led courtroom acumen to take other tacks in winning the freedom of his client (Steven).  Steven is accused of murdering his father and there is a ton of "circumstantial" evidence linking him to the crime and practically nothing to prove that he didn't do it.

Also, Steven's step-mother is killed and the culprit seems to also want a purebred litter of a champion, pup to also die.  Everthing seems to point back to DNA experiments that Steven's father was working on.  Such experiments seem to have aroused the interest of the FBI (the author has to always figure a way to get Cindy Spodek into his tales) and an international hitman.

It is up to Andy to get his client off, protect the dog and his own life.  To do it he calls on his usual cast of characters (Laurie, Kevin, Sam, Pete and the indestructible Marcus). 

The book goes at a fast pace and is hard to put down.  Probably the best Andy Carpenter tale since his initial appearance!
