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.

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

Still so good

I can’t think of another series that I’ve listen to to this point where the quality has stayed so high. Usually they become so formulaic or ridiculous. That is not the case with this series.

The books are always lighthearted but intelligent at the same time. The courtroom scenes and legal particulars are very interesting. Fantastic narration as always.

David Rosenfelt and Grover Gardner have done it again. I always enjoy reading/listening to a new adventure with Andy & company, and this one didn’t disappoint. Grover did and excellent job of bringing it all to life.

Andy Carpenter never fails to provide a complex who-dunit with dry humor and a very entertaining plot. My favorite!!! I’d like to share a beer and burger with him at Charlie’s.
