Autumn has come to Bucks County, and Steve Levitan has a new job: develop a conference center for Eastern College at Friar Lake, a few miles from campus. But on his first visit to the property, his golden retriever Rochester makes a disturbing discovery: a human hand rising from the dirt at the lake's shore. Whose hand is it? Why was the body buried there? The answers will take Steve, his photographer girlfriend Lili, and the ever-faithful Rochester to a drop-in center for recovering drug addicts on the Lower East Side, a decaying church in Philadelphia's Germantown, and finally to a confrontation with a desperate killer.

I love this series :)
I really like how after four books in the series, Neil Plakcy is able to continue to write stories that not only have a real human (and canine) touch, but ones that are intriguing and keep you going till the end.
It was really touching (and I'll try not to do a spoiler here) when the sibling of the victim comes face to face with where his older brother was murdered. The narrator really got the different characters and emotions. The victim had been into some things he should not have, but part of his intentions were to help his younger brother both medically and educationally.
Well what I can I say, I liked the ending where Steve Levitan and his faithful Rochester break up the bad guys plans.
I think I covered it in the 'most memorable' part, but there were others. Steve's friends genuinely care about him and while they know he's technically breaking the law, don't judge him and instead want to help. There's some moving parts that lead up to a more moving part at the end.
I've heard there's a 5th book coming out. Good. Enjoying the audiobooks a lot. :)
Rochester and Steve do it again
