Publisher's Summary

In Rescued, David Rosenfelt again delights listeners with the charm and wit they’ve come to expect. Even the most fervent fans of the sardonic Andy Carpenter and his team will be enthralled by this latest case, where the stakes have never been higher.  

Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter is reluctant to take on any more cases. He’d much rather spend his time working for his dog rescue organization, the Tara Foundation, than find himself back in a courtroom. However, when a truck carrying more than 70 dogs from the South to the rescue-friendly Northeast turns up with a murdered driver, Andy can’t help but get involved. 

Of course Andy is eager to help the dogs, many of whom come to the Tara Foundation while awaiting forever homes - it’s the man accused of murder who he has a problem defending. The accused just happens to be his wife Laurie’s ex-fiance; her tall, good looking, ex-Marine ex-fiance. Even though he acknowledges having argued with the victim, he swears that he is not a killer, and though he would rather not, Andy has to admit he believes he's telling the truth. 

For Andy, even with dozens of successful cases behind him, this case that his wife insists he take may prove to be his most difficult.

Love this series.

I was really glad to see a new book in this series. Missed reading about the life of Andy and all the characters. Grover G is really great to listen to.

Rerun

Nothing new here. I may be getting tired of this series. I felt like I had heard it all before.

You just have to love Andy and his gang

This is a little below the usual standards for the Andy Carpenter series. I love all of the characters and most of the stories. I'm putting this one tiny star lower than usual, as it's not as filled out as usual. I would never miss a Carpenter novel, and wish he'd keep on writing them forever. I suppose he gets tired of his characters, but hey, he shouldn't have created such appealing people and introduced them to us. It's all his fault! I'm rarely interested in his off-series books - they rarely have the cadence and interest of this series. We'll humor David, but we just want more Andy and pals.

Grover Gardner is the perfect reader for this series. He sounds exactly right and is excellent - perfect pitch on all accounts.

Death of a once great series?

I'm so sorry to read such a poor effort in this once great series. The plot was so unlikely it was just plain silly. The new characters were boring and unappealing. In the end, I didn't care if the defendant got off or not. Worst of all, there was no character development for any of the great cast of recurring figures. It appears to be a forced effort to add to the series. I'm returning it.
As always, the narrator was great.

another fun Andy Carpenter book!

These type of books are truly used for escape. The only criticism I have is that the author can only get out about one a year!

Good, but not his best

Andy is not his "top of the game" sardonic self...plot is slow in developing and the ending is not climactic.

Not the Best Andy Carpenter; but Gardner’s a Star

This is clearly in David Rosenfelt’s wheelhouse; always entertaining - and Grocer Gardner once again shows he IS Andy Carpenter. This Carpenter, however, is too short and below his usual standard. But we’ll still wait for the next installment.

Another great book from David Rosenfelt

As expected, a brilliant sassy story from a great author. The narrator brings this wise cracking lawyer to life
