Another very good mystery from David Rosenfelt complete with dogs, humour and enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged.

Not his best. Too many instances where policing SOP's were not followed. Flawed logic identified the main suspect, and an unbelievable leap in logic led to resolution.

Absolutely love the books by David Rosenfelt. The mystery is always on the lighter side and he injects humour throughout. Would recommend for a quick, easy read.

I enjoyed 'Black and Blue'. In the beginning I thought Doug sounded a bit too much like Andy Carpenter, Rosenfelt's other beloved character, but that was tempered as the story proceeded.

The plot itself had some great twists and turns, but, unusually for me with one of Rosenfelt's novels, I had strong suspicions about the parts characters actually played.

The dialog is fun, much in keeping with the Andy Carpenter vein of adding some lightness in the midst of serious criminal activity, Doug's ongoing narrative seems to be allowing him to move off of the consequences of his prior accident and develop on his own, and the procedurals were interesting.

Good writer and an easy read about a detective and his fellow officers who work to solve a series of related deaths.
