Leader of the Pack | [David Rosenfelt]

Leader of the Pack

Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn't mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey's family's connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey's elderly uncle.

Publisher's Summary

Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn't mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey's family's connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey's elderly uncle. He'd rather not, but as a favor to Joey, Andy agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits.

The old man's memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why he's there, it jogs something in the man's mind, and his comments leave Andy wondering if Uncle Nick is confused, or if he just might hold the key to Joey's freedom after all this time. Andy grabs on to this thread of possibility and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties, and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets are kept.

    "WOW Andy Carpenter is back in great form"

    Have listened to ALL the books in this series. This one was worth the wait. It had a lot of twists and turns as well as the lol humor that we've come to expect. I hope there are more to come.

    Story
    "Rosenfelt Does It Again"
    Where does Leader of the Pack rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the better listens in a long time. Andy Carpenter moves from defending dogs to actually defending a person. Great twists and turns with the normal humor and sarcastic comments from Carpenter. Grover Gardner is superb in his narration.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Andy Carpenter. I love his simple outlook on life and his easy going style. His humor keeps the book light and enjoyable.


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Gardner is the best. His presentation of each character is right on and he presents the book in an easy to follow style.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the twist at the end of the trial. I won't give it away but it is something you don't normally find in this type book.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it and can't get enough of Rosenfelt.

    "Andy and Tara are like a decadent desert..."

    I am always entertained by these books. This one did not disappoint me. I hope that there will be another book in the near future.

    I hope that the narrator stays the same. I associate Grover Gardner with Andy and he adds to my enjoyment.

    "Andy is back with the same old antics."

    You gotta love Andy Carpenter and Grover Gardner makes his character perfect. The whole gang is back trying to help out the innocent and get the bad guys. Andy is such a fun loving goof ball who love to annoy and loves his dog Tara. Offen times I find myself laughing out loud with the antics they come up with. This series is an automatic down load for me, one I can share with my mother and both of us enjoy it immensely. But start out with 1. Open and Shut to know the whole story.

    "A Slight Change in the Formula"

    Another winning combination with Andy and his crew, narrated by Grover Gardner. A slight twist to his usual formula (I wo't spoil it). So you will enjoy it even more!

    "You know what you're getting"

    David Rosenfelt has been writing the same book for some time now. I imagine his computer comes equipped with a background program, so that he can overlay the new plot over the basic narrative. Everything in the background is the same - the types of jokes. characters, dialogue.

    And yet, Grover Gardner is such a good narrator and the cookie-cutter story goes down so easily, I bought another one of the same thing. Have a spine and pass on it, unless you want something to drift off to sleep on.
