Publisher's Summary

Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan.

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.

    "What a great surprise."

    I was looking for a character I could follow in a series. After the disaster with Harlan Coben reading the most recent Myron Bolitar book, I was so happy to have found this author. Very similar humor and a great story line.

    "Good -- not great -- but good"

    I enjoyed this book - a *little* predictable is my only complaint. Well read and entertaining. Worth the money.

    "Good for a laugh"

    I really enjoy the Andy Carpenter books. They make me laugh. The story isn't a great mystery, but it is very good entertainment.

    I'm constantly listening to recorded books. Right now I'm a bit sick and weak, but can still enjoy a good listen. I'm so glad I have this resource available.
