This is book number 1 in the K Team Novels series.
From bestselling mystery author David Rosenfelt comes a new series – a spinoff of the much beloved Andy Carpenter mysteries – about a dynamic new investigative team featuring a determined former cop and his loyal German Shepherd.
Corey Douglas and his K-9 partner, Simon Garfunkel, have recently retired from the police force. Not ready to give up the life yet, they come up with a proposal for fellow former cop, Laurie Carpenter, and her investigating partner, Marcus. Laurie and Marcus – who help out Laurie’s lawyer husband Andy on cases – have been chafing to jump back into investigating on their own, so they are in.
They call themselves the K Team, in honor of Simon. Their first job as private investigators comes to them from Judge Henry Henderson, who's known as a very tough but fair judge, and they've all come up against him in court at one time or another. Though it's hard to believe, Judge Henderson is being blackmailed and extorted, and he doesn't want to involve the police--he needs the K Team to figure out why.
Praise for David Rosenfelt and The K Team, the first book in the K Team series
"The K Team makes a strong companion to Rosenfelt’s ongoing series and it should be fighting crime for many novels." —Associated Press
“Corey serves as an investigator and narrator every bit as ebullient as Andy and a lot more diligent . . . If you liked Rosenfelt's rollicking previous series, you'll like this one too.” — Kirkus Review
“A promising start to what’s likely to be a long-running series.” —Publishers Weekly
“Fans of the "Andy Carpenter" series will find much to enjoy here, including some cameos from Carpenter himself.” —Library Journal
