Play Dead | [David Rosenfelt]

Play Dead

Few can rival attorney Andy Carpenter's affection for golden retrievers, especially his own beloved Tara. After he astonishes a New Jersey courtroom by successfully appealing another golden's death sentence, Andy discovers that this gentle dog is a key witness to a murder that took place five years before. Andy pushes the boundaries of the law even further as he struggles to free an innocent man by convincing an incredulous jury to take canine testimony seriously. It will take all the tricks Andy's fertile mind can conceive to get to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and murder, and to save a dog's life - and his own - in the process.

    "Good fun"

    This was my first Rosenfelt book. I thought it was quite fun. The characters were believable, the plot was clear and continuous. Over all it was very easy to listen to. If you like dogs and law stories, you should enjoy this. And the narrator was maticulous as always, Grover Gardner is a seasoned veteran of audiobook narration and he was perfect for the job.
    Nice, easy, enjoyable read.

    "Another great novel"

    All Andy Carpenter series books are great and worth the listen. I have listened to all books in the series and love them all. The mix of wit, humor and drama are excellent. Just carefull when listening while working out you may laugh while lifting.

    "GREAT LISTEN"

    This was another great story by a very talented writer. Great story line and lots of quick come backs. I'll probably use some myself. Couldn't put it down.

    "good story; lots of cornballl"

    But I liked it. It was a pleasant change from the seriousness of courtroom drama. The courtroom scenes, testimony, legal objections, and isues, were genuine, not hokied up for TV. A bit too much on the cheeseball jokes and comments, but laughable nevertheless. Overall good listen.

    "Fun but a little thin"
    Would you listen to Play Dead again? Why?

    I would not listen to Play Dead again but then I almost never "re-read" a book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was satisfied with the book and would probably listen to another from the same author.

    "Good listen"

    I've become a huge David Rosenfelt/Andy Carpenter fan. I love dogs and his cases are a fun way to get my dog fix.
