Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn’t mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey’s family’s connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn’t much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey’s elderly uncle. He’d rather not, but as a favor to Joey, Andy agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits. The old man’s memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why he’s there, it jogs something in the man’s mind, and his comments leave Andy wondering if Uncle Nick is confused, or if he just might hold the key to Joey’s freedom after all this time. Andy grabs on to this thread of possibility and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties, and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets are kept.

    " I am a big fan of David Rosenfelt and have read all of his books. Although this book was not my favorite by far, I still enjoyed it. The character, Andy Carpenter and his dry sense of humor always make me laugh. I look forward to reading all future Rosenfelt books. "

    " Another Andy Carpenter book. Really, there's nothing to say about this one that I didn't say about all of the others I've read. They're always fun and Grover Gardner's narration is always fantastic. This book actually broke the mold slightly for the AC books, though I'll say no more to keep away the spoilers. I guess this means I'll have to wait another year for the next one, though... "
