A good mix of characters and good story line.
Although this plot was good, I pride myself on trying to figure out the ending of murder mysteries before the end of the book. I got this one about half way through, so I was on the edge of my seat to see if I was correct. (I was)
This was my first experience with Gardner. He took a little getting use to; strange voice.
The dog knows!!
Good book, I will listen to the author and narrator again.
Comically the same as Michael Connelly's Mickey Haller.
One for the Money
How the characters handling of the facts are based solidly in law.
No. I laugh out loud at times.
The tongue in cheek dry humor.
His voice fits the character's personality.
I chuckled in many places.
As a dog and legal thriller lover, the story kept me riveted.
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
This is the second book in the series I have listened to. They are good fun short books to listen to, especially when you are in a rut or in need of finding something to listen to. the main character Andy Carpenter reminds me of John Corey from the Demille books. And the fact that he has tied the character of his dog into the stories makes this series different from any other series ive listened too. He has used my love of dogs as a hook which is brilliant. This book could have spend a little more time at the end, going a little slower on how he came to the conclusion of the case but otherwise I loved it and look forward to the next book.
I LOVE audio because the spoken word has emotion and inflection not heard with reading. It's the best part!
I haven't read the print version, I really enjoy listening to Grover Gardner, he has a perfect voice for this book.
I find myself laughing out loud at parts and other parts I'm wanting to listen non-stop.
He has a great voice and I really like the way he changes it for the different characters as they speak.
This is the 6th one in the series and by far my favorite. Hard to actually pick a favorite though because they are all really, REALLY GOOD!
I highly recommend this series. It starts with Open and Shut, once you hear that one you will be hooked. However, if you don't feel like listening to the whole series you could still listen to this one without being lost. If you like dogs you will totally enjoy this!
I love this series and the Tara Foundation. The combination of the reader and the author are perfect. Despite murder and intrigue and bad guys, this is STILL a fun read!
An enjoyable read.
Lighthearted listen with humour, intrigue, murder and enough writer's skill to keep you listening. Great for a break between more serious subjects.
The story is fast paced, fun to listen to and much better than the publisher's summary would lead you to believe. I am already downloading my second David Rosenfelt novel.
Highly recommended. Andy Carpenter is a character who I want to be my friend. Not only is he an exceptional attorney, but he is clever, witty, rich, loyal to his friends, and a dog lover. It cracks me up when he personifies Tara by inserting her thoughts, etc. I appreciate Tara's unselfish behavior by welcoming Reggie into her home. This is a quick listen, throughly enjoyable.
I really like the author. He is very humorous, but I did not like the ending of the book. It could be have been a lot better. Its worth the read through.
