The K Team (The K Team #1) by David Rosenfelt

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.

My review:
When I picked up this book I’d no idea what to expect. I haven’t read the Andy Carpenter mysteries that this is spun off from. That being said I really enjoyed this story. It took me a bit to warm up to Corey Douglas mostly because of his inner monologue about his girlfriend. But I pushed through and really enjoyed solving the mystery with the K Team. This was a convoluted case filled with red herrings galore and tricky bad guys. I really had to work hard to figure it out. By the end I was entranced and look forward to the next installment.
