Another book featuring Andy Carpenter!
on June 18, 2005
Wisecracking but lovable Andy Carpenter is at it again in David Rosenfelt's fourth book, Sudden Death, featuring this lawyer and sometime detective.Along with a group of friends who haev helped him before Andy is up to some of his old tricks when called upon to defend a would be murderer. And while its been three months since his last high profile case, Andy is once again up to the occassion not only employing all of his skills but his wonderful sense of humor and take on life. But Andy really needs to be tournament tough for this trial as it may be his hardest one yet.
In the home of Kenny Schilling, a quarterback for the Giants, police find a missing and very dead quarterback from the Jets. While Kevin
Schilling maintains he is innocent, things may not be that way at all. And as if Andy doesn't have his hands full with his canine rescue partner Willie, his somewhat interesting lawassociate and his not too hardworking and crossword puzzle secretary, Andy's long standing girlfriend and private investigator is thinking of leaving New Jersey and taking a job in the hometown where she grew up.
In the tradition of characters like Myron Bolitar from the
Harlan Coben series and Patrick Gennaro from Dennis Lehane's
series, David Rosenfelt takes his rightful place next to
these men in the fast paced world of suspense sprinkled with
both humor and pathos.
