    "Another entertaining Andy Carpenter series"

    Mr. Rosenfelt is a very entertaining writer and includes his passion for dogs in his works. The Andy Carpenter series are right up there with the most entertaining books I have listened to. At times the humor and wit that is interjected into the book has me laughing out loud. My wife and I have listened to all of the series at least twice. I find the audio books even more entertaining than the paper version due to the excellent reading of Mr. Grover Gardner. To me, the voice inflections and totally believable portrayal of the wisecracking Andy are without the best that they can be. To me, Mr. Gardner IS Andy Carpenter and could not easily be replaced by any other reader. I find myself actually envisioning how Andy and all of the characters look and believe me there are some entertaining and unusual characters in the series. When I listen to these books I get totally engrossed and find myself traveling inside the books covers. I highly recommend this series.

    "Grover IS Andy Carpenter"

    I have read all of the books in the series and really love the easy (dry) humor and excellent "flow" of the narrator. Premise is cute - dog needs a lawyer.

    Listening since 2004. Mystery, thrillers and anything that can blend with a walk, jog, exercise, long drive or a wait at the airport.

    "Still Good...but not the best"

    Not his best. But still good enough for a constant smile, suspense and a few LOL!

    "My first "Andy Carpenter" mystery!"

    I pray there will be no end to Andy Carpenter & Company nor of Grover Gardner's narration of same. As I read other reviews, I realize my review has already been written many times over. Laugh out loud entertainment, wonderful, well-developed characters (any of whom I'd like to call friend) and of course, Tara, his golder retriever. And, again, the very dry humor. Mr. Rosenfelt's books will always be at the top of my wishlist.
