We’ve loved the dog-related crime novels from David Rosenfelt. We earlier reviewed both New Tricks (on December 17, 2009) and Open and Shut (December 18, 2009) and listed them both as highly recommended. Now, Mr. Rosenfelt has a new book coming out soon, Dog Tags. This Andy Carpenter series novel will be released on August 25, 2010 and will carry a list price of $24.99. But we would like to give away a copy of Dog Tags for free.
The copy to be given away in this contest is an Advanced Reading Copy in pristine (A grade) condition. Dog Tags is already rated as a 5-star book at Barnes and Noble. Our intent is to choose a winner on Saturday, August 21, 2010 which should leave just enough time for the winner to receive the ARC on or near the book’s publication date.
Author David Rosenfelt is the former marketing president for Tri-Star Pictures. He now lives in southern California with his family and stable of 35 dogs. Here is a synopsis of Dog Tags:
A German Shepard police dog witnesses a murder and if his owner – an Iraq war vet and former cop-turned-thief – is convicted of the crime, the dog could be put down. Few rival defense attorney’s Andy Carpenter’s affection for dogs, and he decides to represent the poor canine. As Andy struggles to convince a judge that this dog should be set free, he discovers that the dog and his owner have become unwittingly involved in a case of much greater proportions than the one they’ve been charged with. Andy will have to call upon the unique abilities of this ex-police dog to help solve the crime and prevent a catastrophic event from taking place.

“I’ve got a thing about dogs; I am totally and completely crazy about them… Maybe it’s because I’ve spent a lot of time dealing with the criminal justice system, but the average dog I know is paws and shoulders above my species.” David Rosenfelt

Please enter me in this contest. I love all dog books!
Dogs would make great dectectives because of their unusally great sense of smell. They were very helpful at the Twin Towers on 911 and with missing people.
Dogs are wise, have instincts that are unique and sense things that people are unable to.
Dog stories are this amazing one are always captivating and memorable. Thanks for this great giveaway.
A man who loves dogs can’t be all bad!
A dog has the “nose” to be a super snoop! (No offense Snoop Dog) The canine cop in Beverly Hills Chihuahua is a prime example! He even fights the cartels!
My dachshund can sniff out a treat in seconds flat. She can also dig up the dirt and bury evidence.

I would love to be entered, this sounds great!
I think they’d be great because of their nose. They’re so good at smelling, in addition to learning things and being able to be trained. They’re perfect.
