The K Team

Minotaur: St. Martin’s. Mar. 2020. 304p. ISBN 9781250257192. $27.99. M
In this first in a new series by the author of the “Andy Carpenter” mysteries, Andy’s wife, retired cop Laurie, her partner Marcus, and retired K9 officer Corey and his dog buddy, Simon Garfunkel, form an investigative unit: the K team. Their first case comes from a local judge, known for his rectitude in the courtroom and in his private life. For reasons unknown, someone is trying to blackmail him. The K Team swings into action (with occasional assistance and sarcasm from Andy), but very soon people involved in the case begin dying. When the judge himself is found dead of an apparent suicide, the case becomes increasingly dangerous and complex. As a dark conspiracy begins to emerge, the K Team uses creative methods to solve the case, determined to see justice done.
VERDICT Fans of the “Andy Carpenter” series will find much to enjoy here, including some cameos from Carpenter himself. [See Prepub Alert, 8/19/19.]
