This is one funny lawyer ...makes me laugh out loud and still a good mystery of cops and conspiracy and good guys/bad guys story with sufficiently varied and interesting characters, second Rosenfelt I've listened to and plan on getting them all.
This audiobook is very well performed, The story is a somewhat lighthearted mystery that keeps you guessing . I'm going to download another one of David Rosenfeldt's books right now.!
Another great Andy Carpenter story. I love the way Grover Gardner reads this series. His performance in Open and Shut (book #1) totally changed my attitude on audio books.
Story is engaging from the start, with further consolidation of major characters that continue in subsequent books. Interesting, entertaining and funny
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
The Andy Carpenter series by David Rosenfelt were very enjoyable to listen to. There is always a mystery whereby Andy and his team search for the answers. They were, Open and Shut, First Degree and Bury the Lead.
Laurie is the most beautiful woman in the world and the love of Andy's life. She also works as Andy's PI.
Steve was an attorney and now runs a lawyer-mat. He was unable to be a defense lawyer because he was afraid of letting a guilty client get away with a crime. Also, he couldn't be a prosecutor because he might send an innocent person to jail. Therefore, he offered free advice to his customers.
Laurie suggested that he come and join Andy in his law firm. After an interview both men felt comfortable and Steve began working with both Andy and Laurie.
Steve would do most of the paper work involved in a court case such as the briefs. This gave Andy more time to work on the case itself.
Edna, arrived at work an hour late everyday at 10am. She was the best person Andy had ever known to do crossword puzzles so fast and have all the answers correct. Edna could also do the Times newspaper crossword puzzle in 20 minutes. Sometimes, she might even answer the telephone.
Tara, the most beautiful and smart golden retriever, is also a part of the team and lives with Andy. She was rescued by Andy at the SPCA. Andy gave Tara her forever home.
The books are interlaced with a lot of humor which is another reason why I like to listen to these books. The books aren't long and I can usually listen to them in one day. Grover Gardener is the narrator and is just right for these books. The characters are emulated by Gardener perfectly. I'm sure if you purchase these books you will find them to be a pleasant listen.
Say something about yourself!
Can't really cut Andy from the script, but the constant smart ass remarks and juvenile antics just wore on my nerves. Just could not finish this one. I was so hoping for a series that I could get hooked on, but this one is just not it for me.
