A novel by

 
 
Secrets are unearthed in a murder case that lawyer and dog lover Andy Carpenter lost years ago. Will they lead to the truth or more killing in the tenth in David Rosenfelt's popular series?

Over the course of his legal career Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn't mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always known that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey's family's connectionsto organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that Andy visit Joey's uncle in a rest home. He'd rather not but as a favor to Joey, he agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits.

The old man's memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why he's there it jogs something in the man's mind that leaves Andy wondering if Joey's uncle is confused or if he holds the key to Joey's freedom after all this time.

Andy grabs on to this thread and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties, and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets are kept. It makes for another entertaining, suspenseful and dog-filled entry in David Rosenfelt's much-beloved series.
