Hounded - David Rosenfelt
Andy Carpenter isn't sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone
call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop
everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend,
Laurie Collins. He certainly isn't expecting to show up at a crime
scene. But that's exactly where he arrives-at the house where Pete has
just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Diaz. Upstairs are Danny's
now orphaned eight-year-old son and basset hound. And that, Andy
discovers, is why he and Laurie were called to the scene-Pete wants them
to take care of the boy and the dog so they won't get thrown into the
"system." This is already asking a lot, but soon Pete needs another big
favor from Andy. Pete himself has come under suspicion for Danny's
murder, and he needs defense attorney Andy to represent him...and to
find out what really happened in Danny's house that day.

MY THOUGHTS: This is the 3rd book I've read of this series. And they were all out of order. But they are great stand alone books. One of Andy's best friends is under arrest for murder. It's Andy's job to defend him. So he puts the team into action. As they come across some mysterious deaths, they start to see a pattern and it all links back to who killed Danny Diaz, and it isn't Pete. The only thing is all the witnesses for the defense keep coming up missing or killed. You will never figure out who the actual person is that's behind all this. I didn't, I was totally thrown off on this one. I give this book 5.....
