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)
I couldn't get over the missing content. The file is missing content in at least one place for certain, and perhaps more.
Andy, the main character, has a realistic view of himself as the plot moves along. He provides a good sense of the world of attorneys while he struggles to find out whether or not his client is innocent. The narrator clearly is a master at his job. His characters are easily distinguished and you're fully concerned with the outcomes of their lives. This is a very humorous novel and well worth the 6 1/2 hours you need to hear the book in its entirety.
I really enjoyed this book and I found I couldn't stop listening even after I had finished my drive. The story was great as was the humor. Grover does an excellent job of narration.
I'm onto his second in the series now.
You know, it's not the most mysterious mystery, and it's not a deep book. But the main character is funny, and the book's read well.
A great throwaway summer read!
This series is just wonderful - incredible wit, superb dialog and the narration is perfection.
Although I read them out of order, it doesn't matter - each one stands alone very well.
I really enjoy this author... I wish the books were longer though. Andy Carpenter his very witty and self deprecating which makes the books very entertaining... Looking forward to more...
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
This was a really enjoyable listen. The main character is very likeable and I enjoyed it so much I researched the author to see what else I could read by him. After reading this I also got a dog myself!
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had liked the narrator more. It was a fast moving story, but I could see this being a B TV movie. It had all the necessary points. Court, attorney, the estranged wife and an old murder mystery.
Where have I been that I haven't heard of this author before? I love the slightly sarcastic attitude of the main character. He is funny, smart, and a bit of a wise guy. The narration is excellent. I will definitely get another in this series.
I had never listened to a Rosenfelt book; however, this one was on sale so I gave it a try. I listened to about 1/3 of the book and just could not make myself finish it. It was not worth even the sale price.
