    Northern New Jersey has a new local hero on its cultural crime turf. He's Andy Carpenter, the Paterson defense attorney who can sling a quip as fast as he can outmaneuver a snarling prosecutor. Acclaimed author David Rosenfelt's first novel was nominated for an Edgar Award. Now, in this new novel, the intrepid lawyer is thrust into the spotlight where he risks becoming a media victim...of the most fatal kind.

    "Abridged version hurts story"
    Overall

    I love the Andy Carpenter character and this book didn't disappoint. HOWEVER, the abridged version made the storyline seem choppy and the flow of events abrupt. At times, an event will take place that seems completely out of context but changes the entire storeline. . . obviously the missing pieces were too important to cut out.

  • Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey through His Son's Meth Addiction

    David Sheff's story is a first: a teenager's addiction from the parent's point of view, a real-time chronicle of the shocking descent into substance abuse and the gradual emergence into hope.

    Before meth, Sheff's son, Nic, was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candor, Sheff traces the first warning signs, the attempts at rehabilitation, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that, whatever an addict's fate, the rest of the family must care for one another, too, lest they become addicted to addiction.

    Book and Movie Lover says: "Painful and honest account"
    "Superb"
    Overall

    This book is beautifully read. The narrator does a wonderful job, the book itself is haunting and beautiful.
    Sheff is gut level honest with his readers and it is a chance not just to peek at addiction from an outsiders standpoint,(all the closer many people get while at the same time pronouncing judgment on addicted people), but an opportunity to fully inspect and gaze upon the wonders of addiction that affect all of us. A tale of pain, and unyielding hope. I give this four and a half stars for it's superb reading and great content.

    Few can rival attorney Andy Carpenter's affection for golden retrievers, especially his own beloved Tara. After he astonishes a New Jersey courtroom by successfully appealing another golden's death sentence, Andy discovers that this gentle dog is a key witness to a murder that took place five years before. Andy pushes the boundaries of the law even further as he struggles to free an innocent man by convincing an incredulous jury to take canine testimony seriously. It will take all the tricks Andy's fertile mind can conceive to get to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and murder, and to save a dog's life - and his own - in the process.

    Amazon Customer says: "Brilliant, Funny, a GREAT READ"
    "Loved it"
    Overall

    The author is great and the reader absolutely makes the book. It's a light murder mystery with sense of humor. highly recommended.

    I'm a huge Gaffigan fan and this is a great listen. If you have already heard Beyond the Pale there is some repetious material, but it's still worth the listen.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    Overall

    This is quite possibly the most hilarious book I've downloaded. My husband who usually does not enjoy audio books was constantly borrowing my ipod to listen to this story.
    The story is centered around death and if you can get past your initial shock at Moore making light and irreverant comments about death - you'll laugh till it hurts.
    The narrator adds a lot of voices/character to the book which are perfect for this type of story. Enjoy!
