Quotes & Awards

  • “Abridging a mystery is always a tricky task—cut too much and the reader is either in the dark or wondering about dangling plot threads. But this abridgement is superbly done, reducing the length while maintaining the novel's essence and without sacrificing clarity.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Grover Gardner, with his deadpan reserve, IS Andy Carpenter.”

    Audio File

  • “Carpenter is a strong series lead, one of those wisecracking-but-don’t-underestimate-him kinds of characters…The author handles the material deftly, mixing humor and whodunit but never letting the comedy overwhelm the mystery. The novels are written in the present tense, a much overused gimmick in the genre; but here it somehow works, helping to sustain tension by establishing that neither Andy nor the reader knows what’s about to happen. A cracking good yarn.”


  • A 2006 Barry Award Finalist for Best Novel

    " I find all his books so entertaining and hope you will too. "

    " This is the fifth or sixth Andy Carpenter novel I've read, and although I enjoyed it, I didn't find it quite as riveting as the other books I've read. Yes, the ending was a surprise (I love how Rosenfelt does that!), but some of the middle parts actually felt familiar. That's the first time I've felt that way with one of Rosenfelt's books. It was still an enjoyable read. "

    " I'm really enjoying this series - the plots are just twisty enough to be fun without overtaxing your brain to try to remember who's who. The characters are three-dimensional; you really start to care about what happens to them. The main character is funny and quirky without being unrealistic - he has plenty of shortcomings and doesn't hesitate to let you know what they are. "

    " I have been enjoying this series, the main character has dry sense of humour and irony about him. Being Australian I don't understand American or in fact Australian football, but you don't need too as it doesn't make a huge dent in the storyline. I felt the storyline was a bit loose this time. It hasn't stopped me ordering the next in the series from the library though. Just a good read. "
