But the fun stops the day Andy's dad, Paterson, New Jersey's legendary ex-DA, drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium. The shocks pile on as he discovers his dad left him with two unexpected legacies: a fortune of $22 million that Andy never knew existed...and a murder case with enough racial tinder to burn down City Hall.
Struggling to serve justice and bring honor to his father, Andy must dig up some explosive political skeletons - and an astonishing family secret that can close his case (and his mouth) for good.
Crack another case with Andy Carpenter.

"As soon as readers finish this remarkable first novel, they will begin clamoring for a second Andy Carpenter adventure." (Booklist)
"Brisk dialogue, careful plotting, and solid spadework." (Kirkus Reviews)
Avid reader. Retired harpist Consider myself knowledgeable in the English language.
I'm liking the zippy dialogue and sassy characters in this series. Worth continuing with another one.
Intriging, funny and heartwarming
I enjoyed the entire ride. The plot is complicated enough to keep me wondering, trying to figure out 'whodunnit'; and yet, not so complicated that I feel I need to take notes. Mr. Rosenfelt always provides a few unexpected twists and turns, too!
Oh ... my ... goodness! He's a great narrator! I can't imagine simply reading one of Mr. Rosenfelt's books, or listening to another narrator for the 'Andy Series'. Grover does the different characters so well that I wish he would be allowed to leave out all the identifiers, e.g. 'she said', Hatchet said, etc.
Another rare quality this awesome narrator brings to the experience, is that he can do womens' voices impeccably!
Mr. Gardner has the characters so nailed, that you really hate the bad guys, root for the underdogs and come to love Andy's wit, sarcasm, and courage inspite of his self-proclaimed cowardess.
I plan to listen to every book in the series, then on to the next...I'll google Grover Gardner as a narrator, and hope his books are all ones I can listen to....not R rated :)
Not sure what that is, but I'll give it a shot:
If you're looking for drama, suspense, intrigue, mystery, and
even some romance, this is a must-see film!
I enjoy very much how Mr. Rosenfelt continues the story-line and grows the characters and their relationships throughout the series. You feel as you really know the people, and when the book comes to an end, you can't wait for the next one!
This was a fun listen! The dialog was witty, the plot was twisty and turny enough to keep me guessing, and the story had believable characters. I enjoyed the way the narrator portrayed character's voices and accents. My credit was well used.
This was a somewhat predictable story, but it was well done and held my attention. While readers knew there was a comspiracy afoot, it was still interesting to figure out the "why" along with the who.
Easy to follow the characters and loved the
Whoever the main character was...it has been to long since I have listend to it...SORRY
This legal procedural thriller is a fairly light, tight and well written story. I think you'll enjoy the story and the mystery. It's a tight plot and highly believable. The problem was that I didn't much like the narration. I found Gardner's voices were all harsh and difficult - I could either make the volume tolerable ... or I could set the volume so I could hear him and feel my ears were mostly "assaulted." But over all, I enjoyed the book. It was just the narration that I had to "tolerate."
Probably given a brief in between time.
Yes, the plot thickened right up to the end.
This was my first book by this author.
When he found his true feelings about his affections.
The book is entertaining right up to the last page.
If you like mystery along with humorous metaphors ala James Lee Burke, you'll like this
Though a different type of genre, his writing is laced with comparisons to James Lee Burke
At first I was not impressed with the narrator but as the story developed, he became a part of the story.
I was very good and plan to do the rest of Mr. Rosenfelt's audio books
Not as funny or witty as I was led to believe. The story was ok, and Gardner did a good job with what he had to work with.
