I needed this book! I’ve had a bad run of several mediocre books. I needed fun! And Andy Carpenter always delivers. These books just possess a sardonic wit that I really enjoy.
What should be a simple case of self defense goes awry when a key piece of evidence is missing. Of course nothing is ever simple in an Andy Carpenter book and this one is no exception. There are all sorts of theories as to what might have taken place, but is any of what they find going to be considered admissible?

Andy arrives home to find his wife chatting with Dave Kramer. Or as Andy thinks of him, “Laurie’s-tall-dark-and-handsome-ex-fiance” Dave Kramer. And he has quite a story to tell. Yes, he was in the truck & yes, he killed the driver. But he swears it was self ...more
If your an animal lover, you'll love David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series too for there is nothing Andy hates worse in the world than "animals being hurt, injured or abused."
Oh, and Willie, "If there is a human identified with abusing a dog, and Willie is in proximity of that human, it can get very ugly, very quickly." Willie is a past death row client of Andy's....conviction overturned....who now works for him at his Tara Dog Rescue Foundation. His expertise in karate....that's a bonus.
Rescued is an enjoyable and well-paced addition to the series. Rosenfelt is an author who infuses his stories with humor and light-heartedness, and most importantly, his unabashed love of canine companions.

Attorney Andy Carpenter keeps trying to retire but when his wife's ex-boyfriend, ex-cop and ex-private investigator Dave Kramer, is accused of murder, he has no choice but to agree to defend him. It won't be easy since Kramer admits to having killed the victim. But with no witnesses, other than a truck trailer full of dogs, and no second weapon, how you do prove it was self-defense.

Every book in the Andy Carpenter series by David Rosenfelt is a prize. Rescued is the latest book in this series. You can read the book by itself (rather than as part of the series), and I guarantee it will make you want to grab all the other books in the series as well!

This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.
At an early age, Andy Carpenter discovered that he couldn't hit a curve-ball and therefore had to give up on his dreams of playing in the majors and fall back to following in his father's footsteps and becoming a lawyer. His father, a lifelong prosecuting attorney, probably wished for something else, but for the many people that he's defended in court, they wouldn't have it another way.

He ends up representing his wife's (Lori) ex-boyfriend who is accused of murdering someone on the canine filled rig. What ensues is in classic Carpenter form, as he sets his team on a variety of sleuth tasks in the quest to hunt down clues, suspects, and information, ...more
Loved it, though. Wonderful characters in the series, they were all there. Sometimes I wonder how he comes up with these plots. Definitely keep you on your toes as you read. Don't even try to figure out what is going on, most of the time you won't be able to. The end is always something unexpected. Great book, great series, great characters. He could have done more with the dogs, though. I get my "dog fix" thru Andy Car ...more

This is my second read by this author and well it left me with mixed emotions. ! The story starts out in first person then It shifts to 3 rd person. It started out really good , then kind of died once The dogs were rescued. The storyline was a bit confusing to me. I did however love the humor mixed into the story. It was a pretty quick read with short chapters. I somewhat enjoyed the story, bu ...more
When I listen to an Andy Carpenter book it is never for the mystery. I know I have said it before but it is for the characters. Are any of them believable? With the exception of Tara I doubt it. Tara is Andy's faithful Golden Retriever whom he mistakenly believes is the best dog in the world. The books center on his Tara Foundation, which rescues dogs, as much as on his limited law career. I say limited since he never takes more than a case a year and with that he considers himself overworked.
While there is a certain predictably to A. Roosevelt's books, they are a fun read. The internal dialogue of Andy Carpenter is witty and funny. The plots are intriguing enough to maintain interest but not so complex I can't follow them. Makes a good change of pace for me.
I have gotten to this dubious position with absolutely no planning, and at no stage in my life could I have predicted it. But here I am.
My childhood was relentlessly normal. The middle of three brothers, loving parents, a middle-class home in Paterson, New Jersey. We played sports, studied sporadically. laughed around the dinner table, and gener ...more
