The torturous wait is over..."Bark of Night" is on sale. If you read it and like it, please post your opinion and share it with the entire world. If you read it and don't like it, no one cares what you think. ...
Should be getting mine today. Can't wait. The only bad thing about these books is when they end. Always eager for another one!
I've just downloaded it and can't wait to drive to work to hear it. Audible sent me an email that a new story was available.
The audio book I reserved “arrived” at 3:00 a.m. I’m planning to listen on my way to work.
I sadly am waiting to read it until on vaca the 29th. Well, so I say! I find I can resit all things except temptation and the temptation to read this book is STRONG!
I just started reading this book. But the one thing I've noticed you haven't mentioned Sam's dog crash is he still around?
Bought mine this morning.
Did a pre order think is coming today or tomorrow!
Bought it this morning from Audible. Will have to wait to listen when we drive out west on vacation. It’s going to be difficult to wait for sure.
You make my day!
How could anyone not like it?
Thank you for making me smile this morning. Your books, your sense of humor, and your unwavering commitment to rescuing dogs bring me joy. Thank you!
Can’t wait ! ❤️ your books !
That is so true!
It arrived at the library last week. I impatiently followed the rules and will check it out today when it is "legal" to display it on our shelves. The library opens at noon. I will have it checked out at 12:01.
Will go to Barnes and Noble this morning!!!!!
Love it love it already! And have only read the first 20 pages. I try to pace myself so that I don’t finish it in one day.
I've read it, and loved it, and wish that I hadn't read it, so I could still read it.
I'm on the wait list at two libraries. 2nd in line at one and 4th at the other. They're still showing it on order. Then I have to wait for the slow readers ahead of me. There are always slow readers ahead of me. In the meantime I'm re-reading and listening to your previous books from library downloads. I'm a senior so can't afford to buy. But patience has its own rewards. I tell myself.
Was on preorder on Amazon.ca so I hope to get it by end of week, since I live in Canada
“Fangirl squee”‼️ 😊 Just downloaded from Audible, can’t wait to start listening‼️🍻
The fireworks, the trumpets, the parades. It must be, yes it is another David Rosenfelt book.
I just bought it!! I'm so excited to read it 🙂

I am! My pre order is waiting!
Well they did dim the lights in Manhattan in anticipation
July 17 should be declared Rosenfelt Rovers Day!
And my ebook will drop at midnight 😊
Yes it’s almost as exciting on the day they landed on the moon! Looking forward to the entertainment .
I’m counting down. It’s like waiting for the ball to drop in Times Square in New Year’s eve!
If the tracing #s I just got from B&N are correct, I somehow pre-ordered 3 copies of Bark of Night from them. I like you & your books a lot, but I must have had a few senior moments recently!
I need to hire you for my personal PR Team 😊🐶😜
Fireworks at least!😄
Pre-ordered. Just waiting for the clock to strike delivery time.
You mean they’re not???????
You are funny😊
Love your Andy carpenter series!!!😊😊
Or at least flashing the lights 🤷🏼♀️
Is there power in Times Square tonight??
....or at least drop the ball in Yankee Stadium!!!🤣
I'm ready... I'm polishing up the lenses on my reading glasses, hanging the "Do not disturb" sign, taking the phone off the hook, a smile has popped out on my face, licked my page-turning finger.... It's almost here & I've waited so long !!!
Should be downloading to my Kindle soon! 💖💖
Mine won't download and it's driving me crazy! I got the e-mail saying it should be there but it isn't. SO sad!
Got it right at midnight!❤️

I'm going to be in Scottsdale, AZ signing 'Bark of Night' at the great Poisoned Pen Bookstore on Wednesday evening. I would assume it's been sold out for months, if not years, so here's what I would suggest. Show up in the 110 degree heat, press your noses to the hot glass window, and look pathetic. There is a remote chance that I will feel sorry for you and let you in. ...
Scottsdale was my first choice for which signing to go to, but the 110 degree heat made me decide to wait for the next one. 🔥🔥
Can’t wait to listen to it!
Missing your book signing by two days. 😫
I'm going to wait at home for it to be delivered.
I will bring my Golden...if he smooshes his nose up against the glass I know you will let him in, and maybe me, too!
If I lived there I would be first in line to see you. Are you scheduled for Birmingham, Alabama or Asheville, NC ?
After all these years I would love to see you!!!!!
Anywhere in New Jersey?
One day we will meet....when I win the lottery and open my senior dog rescue.....then I will pay you to come and talk to me about your latest Pulitzer prize winning novel and pet some doggies.... 😁
The heat can't keep me away. Going to find out if I can bring Olive to meet you.
Getting my copy from the air conditioned library!
Any stops in FL?
Talk about a great mystery, how did i not know this until today?!
Darn it I was just in Scottsdale last week. Seeing you and getting a signed copy would have made my trip seller. Darn, misses you by a few days.
Do you ever come to Alabama? 🙃
Is there a Frenchie in the book or just on the cover?

This is Truman. Last week he was just another French Bulldog going about his life. Next week he will be the internationally adored star of David Rosenfelt's epic novel, "Bark of Night". He is living proof that dreams can come true. ...
I can't wait! Love your books! Will Truman remember us little people!!!
Look forward to seeing you next week. I have the first question ready!
Don’t let the fame go to his head.
He is a star!
And all this time I thought he was a Boston Terrier.
Looks a lot like a Boston Terrier I once had .
Truman my friend, will you celebrate with bottled water instead of toilet water since you will achieve international fame??🐾🐾
Apparently he’s really impressed.
Really looking forward to your book!
We’ve already preordered on Audible - can’t wait!!
Oh so very precious!!
He is adorable- (to be honest... all dogs I meet are adorable) - but Truman definitely has it going on!!
He looks like a Boston Terrier 🐾
Can't wait for the book AND your appearance in Janesville!
Love your books can't wait to read about Truman. Have you ever included a handi capable pet in your stories? If so I'd love the title to buy it! Our handi capable guy Stagger Lee Mullins has changed our lives😀
Is Truman’s upcoming tour schedule a available on your website? 😂
Truman seems unimpressed. But I am.
I can see that he’s bouncing with joy at such an honour. I’m looking forward to your book. I’m just starting over with them in audible books so I can listen in the car. Thank you for providing such great entertainment.
Love to Truman!
What a cute face! 7 days left !!
I bet even his snores and farts are adorable!
A whole week?! 😳
I think it's going to feel more like 7 whole days.
YOU ARE PRICELESS!!!!! No wonder I adore your books!
I know, right? - I've been pacing at my mailbox til it comes.
It will feel so much longer....dragging on and on. Can it be here already? 🙂
You mean we still have to wait THAT long. Seems like a life time.
A long week.
Yaaaaayyyyyyy, can't wait
I love your books and I love your sense of humor! 😍 Can't wait to read this one! Could you publish one new Andy Carpenter book each month PLEASE
Mr. Rosenfelt, I have a complaint about your books! They are so good I have to read it all in one sitting, I just can't put them down!!!! Can't wait for this new book.
I saw this earlier and thought about you.
Re-reading the others to make waiting easier.
Feels like forever
I can't wait!!
Pre-ordered and ready!
Obviously the pup on the cover is resting ‘ Waiting for the moment of Super Stardom
I will be in bed for a week just waiting in anticipation. Can’t wait David.
I just pre-ordered!
I believe you are getting better at this FB thing. HAHA
You mean I have to wait? Oh no!❤ Ha! Ha!
It’s time to line up at the bookstore!
I will get my copy when I see you in Janesville. Looking forward to it!
It's even worse when you have to wait for your local library to get it!!!!😟😟
Despair and woe!
I'm first on the list at my library!!!
I can't wait!
I can’t wait any longer! 😣
I just finished your last unread book or at least that was available at library with no Amazon credits left.
Preordered long ago.....cannot wait!
I am counting down the days.
That very thing happened to me...
I have been feeling that way all day!!!
It's true. My copy is preordered & I'm counting the days too for it to arrive in the mail. The lines at bookstores will circle to globe.
It will be hard, but we must be patient!❤️
Reading Collard, hoping to have it done by the time it arrives😍
This was me!! I went to the book store on Friday and they told me that. I was bummed lol
Totally, I'm on vacation for a week and I need my fix!!!
I’m on my way to the ER now.
Forgive me for repeating a post from last year, but it still applies (even though I know it will not change any behaviors): I totally understand why so many people love fireworks. Sure, there are slight negatives…they petrify poor animals, they open emotional wounds in vets suffering from PTSD, and they maim and even kill many people every year. But all of that pales next to the incredible joy of hearing very loud noise. ...
Sure put it up there with why people drive cars, eat meat, buy paperbacks, run AC, etc.
I’ve heard of some places doing laser shows this year.. what a great Idea! Much cheaper, no noise, no fire danger, no trauma to pets and others. Hopefully this is a wave of the future!
Unfortunately the childlike need to be defiant takes over the ability to listen to the logical reasons why fireworks do more harm than good, and the empathy just isn't there. Let's hope some opt to use the money they would spend on fireworks and beer and donate to their local veterans fund.
Agree. The neighborhood just goes crazy with the loudness. And you never know when they're going to hit. All summer.
I finally broke down and bought a thundershirt and calming treats for our maltipoo. She did better last night while the city did its fireworks over a mile away.
I am happy to stay at home with my dog and watch the quieter version on t.v.
Keep posting If only one person listens it will make a difference
I disliked them even before I had a noise sensitive dog.
And don't forget....they keep up people who have to get up for work in the morning!!!!
I totally agree with you, David Rosenfelt! It's a crazy world.
Not to mention the fire dangers fireworks pose.
It's unfortunate we can't enjoy the outdoors in the evening with our pups without all the booms. We have a portable AC unit in the bedroom along with 2 fans running to help deaden the noise.....but they still hear.
I totally agree. My dog is terrified and nothing I’ve tried really helps. Very little sleep the last few nights. Bracing myself for tonight. Wish they would at least keep it to just one night.😢
Hoping for a safe 4th for everyone
I agree totally.
Thank you. 🙉❤
There are fireworks available that do not make noise. They are still beautiful and can be launched with music in the background instead of the loud noise.
I have to use Adaptil on one of my pooches. He is so terrified.
I am so with you, David. They frighten birds & small animals to death. They terrify those with PTSD & of course, our pets. But as long as people are happy. In Italy, they have silent fireworks in a couple of towns.
Only you could have expressed it so well! Thank you, may someone take heed.
I agree and I think it’s more of a man thing when it comes to the noise makers. The colorful works put on at parks are at least pretty. The firecrackers for the sake of noise are money out the window IMHO.
Got my copy pre-ordered!!
Yes we will. All for you.
My boy wouldn't like MORE fireworks. But I'm waiting anxiously for your book...
No fireworks but I will raise a glass in anticipation! 😎
No fireworks here, Bubbles would be having a fit 🙂 This is the only fireworks in our house
If my dog wasn't afraid I would set off fireworks!! Got the book pre-ordered!! Can't wait
South Americans celebrated differently- They had a Total Solar Eclipse in your honor !
Already pre ordered mine at Amazon. Can’t wait!
Without a doubt!!!!!!
I loved it!!
This is funny, but true dog lovers would prefer a quiet night to all the scary noise...just sayin...I ❤ U and your books D Rosenfelt, but hate the fireworks! 🎉
well perhaps not - fireworks upset dogs and cats and every other known critter and species of animals - the number of lost dogs after firework celebrations goes up. Love towns and cities where fireworks are banned because of that reason ( not budget cuts ,,,,) anyway millions of fans will be sitting down with a nice peaceful glass of wine and not tending to families for a day or so. Can not wait!! <3
Started an ARC of it today -- and aside from calling you a very bad word right before Andy meets Truman, am really enjoying it!
Already pre ordered! Can’t wait. I need to read another Andy Carpenter books Have been reading his other thrillers right now! Really good books!!
And dancing the night away in celebration also. Do I need to get in line to purchase yet? 🙂
Yes! We will!
Please no fireworks! I have a dog here who is pacing, and it is not even the fourth yet.
That is a lot of dog,David!❤
Good book title?
They are so sweet!
They are gorgeous. I love mastiffs. I'll give you a buzz when I hit the lottery.
You can feel the love.
Love my CANE CORSO Maximus drinking from the bird bath.
Mastitis are giant love babies
It's a shame they way they don't get along.
They look like they are getting along fine. 😍😍
They make a room sized rug!
Seems like they like each other 🙂
I guess they like each other.
You’ve never mentioned about any of your dogs not getting along: I wonder if it’s because they realize that they’ve been “saved.”
Finding a pillow is not always easy when you are a big guy, good thing your brother has a couple. I love the other visible dog parts in this picture .
That's truly Ruff!
That's Love ! ❤
Or coming up with a plot for your next book 📚
Beautiful photo! ❤❤❤
Are they both boys? Or is it a girl & boy? Best buds? Or a romance? Love it. So adorable. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful dogs 😍
Thus looks like my daughter's house. An average of 25 dogs a day. She fosters for Proverbs 12:10 , boards dogs in her home and owns 8 dogs and 3 cats. Check out her website. Loving CarePet-sitting Frankiln Tn these dogs all get along so well cuddling and grooming each other. It's amazing. I retired and gave her my pet sitting business and she has shot it out of a Canon. She has to turn business away because of the space she has. So hard for her. Plus this wonderful girl is donating a kidney to a fellow volunteer for the rescue on Aug. 6th! As her mother I am proud but worried for her. I have read all your books and some background on you so I know you are a good soul. Perhaps you could come down and so a local book signing as a fund raiser for her. She won't be able to keep dogs in her small home while she recooperates . She keeps very large dogs. Just a thought. I bet all the Proverbs people would buy your. Book(s) to support her.
LAST CALL: I’m going to be doing a tour to benefit dog rescue for “Dachshund Through the Snow” in the first week of October. Now is the time to let me know If you are affiliated with a rescue group that wants to conduct a large event to raise a lot of money for rescue. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. ...

Mackenzie's Animal Sanctuary please consider this! David is a dog lover and rescuer and writes about a sanctuary just like yours in his books!!!
Humane of Central NY. We aren’t affiliated with the national Humane Society so we need all the help we can get!
Of course I pre-ordered this one. And already pre-ordered the one for next year. Love this guy!! And also what a great animal lover he is!!
Oklahoma Alliance for Animals would be very interested
Jeanne Amos what do you think, maybe McCormick for the Humane Society.
Lilly Belle says please come to Oklahoma and support Oklahoma Alliance for Animals
I volunteer with South Central Bloodhound Rescue. I have helped them with transport arrangements etc. They are also involved in dog shows and will be sponsoring a National in October in Garland Texas. They have confirmation and trailing. Some of the rescue bloodhounds have gone on to working in law enforcement. Or just trailing to help law enforcement. I would love to see a story about the life of some of the rescue hounds. Frank Roberson is in the Dallas area. He does all kinds of drawings etc for businesses. Plus many pro bono for rescues. He also has a shop that sells items for rescues. Some of the hounds I have set up transport for have come from shelters and traveled across country. We have one lady that whenever she picks up a rescue, they get a triple Whataburger. I remember one they got a steak dinner for. Another lady with our group works at a vet office in Frisco that vets mainly rescue dogs. We recently lost our bloodhound Sofie. Sofie came from Louisiana and was in a shelter. She had a chip but no one was able to contact owners. Her chip was registered in 2005. That was the year of Katrina. Please feel free to message me and can give you more details on who to contact with the group. She is one of the founders of the rescue. And can provide much more info than myself. Thank you.
RDRP any interest in doing this?
I don't suppose a side tour to Australia for Golden Retriever Rescue (& other great dog rescue organisations) is on your to do list? 🐕🐩

Project Freedom Ride Would any of your rescue groups be interested in doing a fundraiser with David Rosenfelt? I think he and Roman are kindred spirits-- maybe they can interview each other at an event! 🐶 Please see below, David's response to the New York Times piece on relocating dogs for adoption. Peace out! 🐾
Already preordered as is The K Team.
I LOVE THIS!! so regal!

Please help charity, Bid to Save a Stray that rescues stray, abandoned and neglected Romanian dogs: www.facebook.com/bidtosaveastray/ We rescued a gorgeous Rommie girl from them back in Aug 2015 and she now lives in the UK with us. 💕💕
Jessica Smessica what about K9 Justice League ??
There is a piece in the NYT which among other things has criticisms of relocating dogs from bad shelters to places where they are more likely to be adopted, like the Northeast. It talked about a man who went to a shelter to get a puppy, only to be outraged when he found out it was shipped North. It also criticizes many rescue groups for policies that are too strict. In case anyone is interested, this was the response I sent to them: ...
That is a great response and so very true. And often those transported pets are taken from a kill shelter because some rescue was willing to take them in and adopt them out. So yes, relocating saves lives and gives pets a chance at a furever family.
David, thank you for all you do for our furry friends.
Well said. It’s almost like you write professionally...
The author does seem to miss the point. Well said David!
Your response was right on target. I admire you and your wife so much for your commitment and I love the pictures you post of your furry family.
Bravo! I volunteer at a small shelter in MA. We do our darndest to match prospective adopters to the pups we have. On occasion we have had to turn away an adopter for a specific dog...our concern was it wasn't a good match, or the references fell through. People get angry but the dogs future is our #1 concern. All though our requirements are not as strict a some rescues, we do screen our applicants very carefully. Unfortunately, we are small and cannot take dogs from the south, those that are in desperate need because of MA laws (expensive quarantine & we don't have a facility to do that ourselves). That said, the number of southern dogs that end up in our shelter as strays or owner surrender is amazing.
Well said David!
Thank you for all you do. I live in an area in the south where it is impossible to house all the abandoned, abused and orphaned animals and too many are PTS simply because of no space. These rescues from up north that are willing to rescue pull and transport these babies are a blessing to all the animals and animal lovers and believe me when I say there is sill a surplus for those wanting to adopt.BTW just finished Black and Blue and eagerly awaiting your next book.
I live in Georgia and volunteer with rescue groups that send puppies and adult dogs up north for adoption. I have fostered nearly 200 puppies, every one of adopted into loving homes. I can state unequivocally that, without the option of relocating these dogs, millions more would die in shelters.
Very well said. Our rescue pup came from a shelter down south where she got no interest at all. Thankfully, they sent her up to northwest Indiana, and that's when we found her. That was 18 months ago. Yes, some rescues have such strict rules it's almost impossible for most people to meet. There are SO MANY animals waiting for homes and you can find one at your local shelters or rescues. The point is . . . adopt a dog or cat in need and they will be your best friend for life.
Thank you for this thoughtful response.
We have a rescue relocated from Tennessee. He is now 10 years old and a real member of our family. I am 100% for relocation.
I work as a foster and a volunteer at a shelter in Wisconsin that takes in the stray animals from shelters down south to ease overcrowding. It is a great program and finds the animals homes faster and saves so many from being euthenized!
Our dog came to us from a southern rescue. A relay of wonderful volunteers brought her to the rescue from whom we adopted her. Her story, as others have pointed out, is not unique. There are so many wonderful dogs (and cats) in shelters all over the country. Adopt, not shop.
Quite right David!
We'll spoken. "I want this dog, and only this dog" shouldn't be the mode of thinking when there are so many loving dogs who are waiting to show they can and would be great companions.
We've had two wonderful rescue pups from the south, and we thank the volunteers who transport and foster them.
This is my Texas foster who was due to be euthanized. He's an amazing dog. I wish there had been someone who stepped up to adopt him to prevent the trauma of transport and months in a shelter. Congratulations to Four Legged Freedom Rescue for saving Asher. He is now super healthy, growing like a weed, and ready for adoption! 💜
