Airtight

When one tip leads New Jersey policeman Luke Somers to Steven Gallagher, things quickly go wrong, but Luke is instantly glorified for solving the case. But to one man, Luke is no hero.

Publisher's Summary

Judge Daniel Brennan is only days away from achieving a seat on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals bench when he's brutally stabbed to death in his garage. An army of media and law enforcement descend on the case, and thousands of tips pour in from the public. When one tip leads New Jersey policeman Luke Somers to Steven Gallagher, things quickly go wrong, but Luke is instantly glorified for solving the case.

But to one man, Luke is no hero. Chris Gallagher raised his brother, Steven, almost single-handedly, and, certain that Steven is innocent, he won't rest until he sets the record straight. Thanks to Luke's newfound fame, he's an easy man to find, and Chris quickly makes it clear that Luke's own brother will die if Luke refuses to help clear Steven's name.

So begins Luke's desperate attempt to find another suspect - and other suspect - in Judge Brennan's death. But Luke's investigation might open the door to powerful forces even more dangerous than Chris Gallagher.

What the Critics Say

“…He (Narrator Jeff Steitzer) has a wonderful deep and gravelly voice, very natural and pleasant to listen to. Steitzer reads with feeling and the many and well-developed characters, all of whom are voiced, ring true. His handling of the dry humor characteristic of Rosenfelt’s writing is excellent. The plot, wild and occasionally over-complicated, will draw listeners in immediately.” (Sound Commentary)

    "Why is this not in David Rosenfelt style?"

    This book has no humor in it. Sprinkled in some areas as a after though by David, but the book is serious mediocre thriller. The creator of the genre called humor mystery thrillers has left out humor in this book. So for Andy Carpenter fans this will be a mega disappointment, For the rest it will be just a regular disappointment.

    Story
    "Good enough but nothing special"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Difficult to buy into the story. It was hard to believe the main character would kill the kid - it was inconsistent with he type of person he was supposed to be and it bugged me. Why didn't he just shoot him in the arm? And then the cops don't investigate if the kid really did the murder till they're forced to? And when the brother gets kidnapped the cop brother doesn't start a search right away?? Really?


    If you’ve listened to books by David Rosenfelt before, how does this one compare?

    Love the Andy series and this one was more of a C+ kind of book.


    Did Jeff Steitzer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Pretty good but some of his characters were annoying - I like it better when they just read and don't try to be someone else.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    More Andy Carpenter!

    "Enjoyed the story.."

    ...but found the ending disturbing. It's just another piece of how our society has lost track of the difference between justice and revenge.
    The overall storyline, though, was absorbing and made for a great who-dunnit.

    "Not His Best"

    David Rosenfelt should stick with the Andy Carpenter stories.........which are super!! I have read every single one. However, this book was hard to follow, hard to believe.............and totally missing the Rosenfelt humor found in the Carpenter books.

    Story
    "Not a good effort"
    What would have made Airtight better?

    It could have been better if the AWOL soldier had not been blown up too early.


    What was most disappointing about David Rosenfelt’s story?

    This book ran out of gas at the halfway mark. The narrator did not do a good job when he moved away from the main characters voice. The last 25 % was predictable and the ending was anticipated. Rosenfelt is great when he does the Andy Carpenter criminal law stories but I hope this character is not repeated.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess the best thing would be for a new Andy story to come out quickly so as to wash this effort away.

    "Not the Rosenfelt I love"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Where's his humor? Where's his passion - for people and for dogs and even for sports and sport bar food? Please bring him back!


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Rosenfelt again?

    Yes.....


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    total disappointment

    "Best David Rosenfelt Book Yet"

    I've always enjoyed David's books, but this one was outstanding. I thought the story was very tightly written and extremely suspenseful. Throughout the book, you could almost feel the clock ticking down while following the twisted path. The story line was very topical and complex without being too confusing. Even though "fracking" is the protester issue du jour, David put a great spin on it and used that to his advantage. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a suspenseful, fast-moving thriller.

    "Jeff Steitzer made this a great listen!"
    What made the experience of listening to Airtight the most enjoyable?

    I am a big fan of David Rosenfelt and have loved all his books but Jeff Steitzer did such a great job reading this bringing life to each character with different voices and accents that it was really fun to listen to. I would highly recommend this audiobook!
