David Rosenfelt is a briliant writer of mystery. I love a good mystery, but have a hard time finding many that just grab me. Leader of the Pack is the 10th book in the Andy Carpenter series, but can be enjoyed as a stand alone if you so choose. Andy is a rescuer of Golden Retrivers and lawyer who is well off enough to pick when he takes a case. Leader of the Pack is full of twists and turns to keep you guessing. I was so rivited with the 10th book in the series I will defenantly be starting from the beginning of the Andy Carpenter series, Open and Shut. David Rosenfelt has captured my heart with Leader of the Pack and I now where to turn for my mytery fix.

Wish Rosenfelt could write more rapidly or didn't sleep. His books leave you wanting more, and more and more.

A reader can always expect two things when reading an Andy Carpenter novel: a lot of wit and an unanticipated ending. This latest entry in the series is no exception, as the dog-loving attorney pursues a case that has haunted him for six years. Joey Desimone, son of a mafia boss, was convicted of a double murder of which Andy believes him innocent. And almost by mistake, he learns something that sets off his investigation in order to gain a new trial. While Andy gets a retrial, he really, as usual, lacks the facts and evidence to prove Joey’s innocence. Meanwhile, during the course of the investigation, this, of course, continues while the trial goes on, he trips over a bigger crime, making for an exciting double-barreled story. This book is perhaps the most complicated of the entire series, raising a deep moral issue for the lawyer, which he resolves handily. The humor continues to be light and wholesome, while the cast of familiar characters provides excellent backup to the main protagonist. Recommended.

Have read all of the "Andy Carpenter Series". and will be waiting for his next book. This series is about a lawyer who doesn't really like to work, defending clients he believes innocent, but getting himself in some bad situations trying to get proof. Situations are serious but he has a humorous side. I have read other books by this author that were not part of this series and I have also enjoyed those.

I have read each one of David Rosenfelts' books and I love them. Andy Carpenter is a great character that isn't perfect but is totally loveable. And I adore Tara. The plots are well thought out and always contain surprises. This is the 10th Andy Carpenter book I've read and I haven't been bored yet. I'm always waiting for the next one.

This is a fun, fast read just like the previous Andy Campbell books. How could we expect less? This one has a very clever twist at the end that I just didn’t see coming. All his books have intricate plots, but this one is a doozy! Add in his “usual cast of suspects” plus a few new ones, his trademark sense of humor, and Rosenfelt has another winner!

He walks in a buck in his sharp jaws. He is hauls it over to their food place, drops it there then gets off an antler. He carries the antler back to his den in the 10th result.

Rosenfelt has created one of the best characters in the legal thriller universe: The self-criticizing and witty Andy Carpenter. Here is another fresh take on Andy and a new chapter in his life. In this one, Joey Desimone, the son of a mafia Don is in jail for a double murder. Andy had defended him and never felt right because he was sure that Joey was innocent. In fact the author gives a hint at the beginning of the book, describing how the murders happened and that description does not fit the police report. The police say that Joey killed his ex-girlfriend in a fit of rage and then killed her husband, Salarno too. The reader knows that Salarno was the actual target and that his wife was kllled as an afterthought. Six years later Andy goes to see Joey's Uncle Nicky, who is the brother of the mafia Don, Carmine Desimone. Nicky is obviously senile but comes to his senses long enough to let Andy know that Joey was innocent and that Salarno was a "dirty" rat who deserved to be killed. As soon as Andy leaves Uncle Nicky is killed and his murder is made to look like a suicide. This makes Andy trust what Uncle Nicky told him and as he starts investigating Salarno's business dealling he finds that he was into dealing arms and hated by the people he was selling them to. The more Andy starts to uncover, the bad guys try to get him, requiring the services of the unstoppable Marcus Clark (bodyguard supreme). The book never gets boring and the plot going around behind the scenes is big. There is some very good courtroom dialogue (with Andy and his usual witty retorts behind his breath). As Andy uncovers the facts he will start to question his own career and have to decide if he really wants to retire permanantly this time around. I couldn't put this book down and finished it in two sittings. I highly recommend it.
