His streak of murder case acquittals made him a regular on cable talk shows. His recent $22 million inheritance bought him a dog rescue operation named the Tara Foundation after his own beloved golden retriever. Yet after turning down cases left and right, Andy Carpenter thinks he’s facing a midlife crisis. He knows he needs to get back to some real work as fast as a felonious world will allow. When a friend, a newspaper owner, calls in a favor and asks him to protect his star reporter, Andy is less than thrilled. His new client is Daniel Cummings, a journalist who is being used as a mouthpiece by a brutal serial killer. Things only get worse when Daniel is discovered near the body of the murderer’s latest victim. And after Andy himself starts collecting anonymous death threats, he hears the news every defense lawyer dreads … and moves within a dangerous keystroke of becoming tomorrow’s obituary.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The author writes like a guy relentlessly channel surfing, always on the move, never risking boredom…A fun roller-coaster ride.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Grover Gardner captures the spirit of the wisecracking Carpenter, whose bravado is only skin deep…Gardner’s reading is flawless.”

    AudioFile

  • “The plot careens around various turns, but the real charm of this series lies in the wit of its affable narrator, who is not about to let an ongoing capital trial keep him from walking his beloved golden retriever, betting the point spread, or losing on the stock market.”

    Booklist

  • “Rosenfelt offers the right mix of legal and investigative detail and New Jersey lip in this complexly plotted, amusing addition to his series…Gardner strikes just the right tone in his excellent reading, which enhances the ironic dialogue.”

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 2/19/2014

    " I thought this was the first in the series, so that may added to my lack of enthusiasm. But the main character was both boring and insecure. You know, like most millionaire lawyers...... The early rant about people who let dogs sleep outside being scum really turned me off. It's supposed to communicate his love of dogs (and the hook of this series), but he really only loves HIS dog. Will not read the rest of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hob | 2/15/2014

    " Maybe the best of the first three. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 2/12/2014

    " Some funny jokes. A quick mystery novel for lawyers involved in criminal law only. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fefe | 2/10/2014

    " Decent read - though I'm tired of his clients always framed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Jan | 2/5/2014

    " As always, a good read - not taxing, surprises and humor and of course Tara! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 2/1/2014

    " Light-hearted legal/police thriller. I like the way the cast of characters keeps accumulating with each new addition to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 1/30/2014

    " really liked all 8. Mysteries, people get killed but not dark and gruesome. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff Wilson | 1/26/2014

    " Audio book. I couldn't really get into this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Daniel | 1/17/2014

    " What a terrible book. This was obviously written for children. There was no depth to the story and the characters were weird.He tried to make the main character, Andy,funny but it just didn't work. He came across a little insane. In addition he had an unnatural relationship with his dog, Tara.Ii was a little icky "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marylou Burns | 1/17/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 12/28/2013

    " O.K. read. The best part surprisingly was the ending. Good mystery book to read if you want a brain vacation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 12/28/2013

    " Andy Carpenter is still the witty unortodox defense attorney. His usual friends show up for the solving of the crime which his client did not committ. There starts to be a sameness about these books but still are fun to read and enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/23/2013

    " I enjoyed the dialogue and characters as usual - dry, witty humor! Did not like the plot line in this one as much as the others..a bit confusing at times, which resulted in 3 stars instead of 4. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/21/2013

    " Another good book in this series! He could feature the golden retriever a little more, but that's OK. I think this is a pretty witty series and a mystery I can comfortably read. "

    " Can't believe I never read this series until now! Have read the first 3 books in the last couple of weeks. Andy is a great character, as is Laurie, Willie, Vince, Kevin and all the other fringe characters. In this one Andy is defending a man accused of being a serial killer. Good read! "

    " I really like Andy Carpenter. He is funny and down to earth and seems nice. I would want him to be my lawyer if I were to get in trouble. I like an easy-to-read book that is a page turner for airplane trips. The ending wasn't that great though. "
