Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn't mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey's family's connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey's elderly uncle. He'd rather not, but as afavor to Joey, Andy agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits.

The old man's memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why he's there, it jogs something in the man's mind, and his comments leave Andy wondering if Uncle Nick is confused, or if he just might hold the key to Joey's freedom after all this time.

Andy grabs on to this thread of possibility and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties, and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets are kept.

Riveting, suspenseful, and highly entertaining, Leader of the Pack is bestseller David Rosenfelt's latest entry in his much-beloved Andy Carpenter series.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Andy Carpenter, that lazy lawyer, wealthy idler, rescuer of homeless dogs and sometimes the rest of the world as well, is back. This entertaining novel begins with a couple of efficient murders and switches to a soft moment: Andy takes his dog on a therapy visit to a gaga old man, who, in a lucid interval, blurts something startling. Later the man is found dead in his shower. The verdict? Accident. But Andy, in a flash that reveals the watchful detective mind under the sloth, spots the errant detail. The rest of the book is like that, as it opens to a world of murderous crime lords and drug dealers: the clues are there. Irritants in the earlier novels a self-conscious lowbrow streak, an irreverence edging into uncalled-for sarcasm are minimal here, but Carpenter has too easy a time scoring off and defeating anybody who challenges him. Still, there are some well-worked action scenes and fiery courtroom clashes, adding up to a good-natured read that isn't quite as easygoing as it seems. Like its hero.--Crinklaw, Don Copyright 2010 Booklist"
