In Citizen K-9, bestselling author David Rosenfelt masterfully blends mystery with dogs and humor to create an investigative team that readers will be rooting for book after book.
The Paterson Police Department has created a cold case division, and they want to hire the private investigators known as the K Team to look into the crimes. After all, Corey Douglas and his K-9 partner, German shepherd Simon Garfunkel, recently retired from the force. Plus, another K Team member, Laurie Collins, used to be a cop as well.
Their first cold case hits home for the K Team. A decade ago, at Laurie's tenth high school reunion, two of their friends simply… vanished. At the time Laurie had just left the force, and Corey was in a different department, so they had no choice but to watch from the sidelines. With no leads, the case went cold.
As the team starts to delve deeper into the events leading up to that night—reopening old wounds along the way—the pieces start to come together. But someone wants to stop them from uncovering the truth behind the disappearance, by any means necessary.
Former police officer Corey Douglas, the narrator of Edgar finalist Rosenfelt's winning third K Team novel (after 2021's Animal Instinct), tackles a cold case involving two of his high school classmates who disappeared seven years earlier during their 15th reunion. One of the classmates, Chris Vogel, had ties to drugs and organized crime, while the other, Kim Baskin, seemed to barely know Vogel, though witnesses saw them leave the reunion together. Their car was found abandoned a few miles from the event with the only clue being a playing card left in the glove compartment. Corey and his fellow team members soon discover a rash of murders around the country where playing cards were also left behind, though nothing else seems to link the crimes or the disappearance. The no-nonsense Corey has a dry sense of humor, and the interplay between him and his colleagues complements a twisty plot whose threads tie together in an exciting finale. Corey's perspective on Andy Carpenter, who plays a minor role, will please fans of the author's series featuring that attorney sleuth. Rosenfelt consistently entertains.
