Got to listen!
The way the story was told, slowly painting the picture each characters history relating to the total package of the story. Not saying the story was slow at all. It was a wonderfully paced story.
Yes, but had to leave car to go into work...darn it!
Love this author. Not just a "dog" story. Much more involved in each characters past, present and future. It ended as I wanted it to, yet it didn't end as I wanted it to.

I read a couple of Andy Carpenter novels and found them highly entertaining. This was no different. David Rosenfelt's books are enjoyable and are entertaining. I think my biggest complaint was the plethora of bad guys after one lawyer. Sometimes it gets a bit unbelievable. Since I had already read some of his other books, I also had an idea of what Andy should sound like. This narrator did not fit that bill; however, he was good nonetheless.
My recommendation is if you are looking for an easy read, this book will do nicely.
The mixture of laughter and tension. It makes things very human. I know dogs are at the center of it, but that makes it very human to me. I guess he sees dogs like I do and reads their expressions like I would. The dogs are realistic too, no super-dogs, it keeps it in the right scale for me. The sense humour is wonderful too.
Andy, always Andy, with Laurie a close second. The next circle of characters, Vince, Pete, Sam, Markus, etc. are great too. Each is a very distinct character that makes a great mix.
They are all great. Well, I've only heard the Andy Carpenter ones, but they are great.
Laughed out loud, and bit my nails, as I always do in these books.
A good mix of characters and good story line.
Although this plot was good, I pride myself on trying to figure out the ending of murder mysteries before the end of the book. I got this one about half way through, so I was on the edge of my seat to see if I was correct. (I was)
This was my first experience with Gardner. He took a little getting use to; strange voice.
The dog knows!!
Good book, I will listen to the author and narrator again.
Comically the same as Michael Connelly's Mickey Haller.
One for the Money
How the characters handling of the facts are based solidly in law.
No. I laugh out loud at times.
The tongue in cheek dry humor.
His voice fits the character's personality.
I chuckled in many places.
As a dog and legal thriller lover, the story kept me riveted.
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
This is the second book in the series I have listened to. They are good fun short books to listen to, especially when you are in a rut or in need of finding something to listen to. the main character Andy Carpenter reminds me of John Corey from the Demille books. And the fact that he has tied the character of his dog into the stories makes this series different from any other series ive listened too. He has used my love of dogs as a hook which is brilliant. This book could have spend a little more time at the end, going a little slower on how he came to the conclusion of the case but otherwise I loved it and look forward to the next book.
I LOVE audio because the spoken word has emotion and inflection not heard with reading. It's the best part!
I haven't read the print version, I really enjoy listening to Grover Gardner, he has a perfect voice for this book.
I find myself laughing out loud at parts and other parts I'm wanting to listen non-stop.
He has a great voice and I really like the way he changes it for the different characters as they speak.
This is the 6th one in the series and by far my favorite. Hard to actually pick a favorite though because they are all really, REALLY GOOD!
I highly recommend this series. It starts with Open and Shut, once you hear that one you will be hooked. However, if you don't feel like listening to the whole series you could still listen to this one without being lost. If you like dogs you will totally enjoy this!
