Summary

Andy Carpenter's accountant, Sam Willis, is stunned to receive a phone call out of the blue from Barry Price, a high school friend he hasn't spoken to in years, pleading for help with something too frightening to discuss on the phone. Barry needs Sam's financial acumen and lawyer Andy Carpenter's legal expertise--and he needs them immediately. But when Sam almost runs over an injured dog lying in the road on the way to Barry's house, he can't drive off without waiting for help to arrive. By the time Sam makes it, Barry's already taken off on a private airplane headed who-knows-where.
Assuming their help is no longer needed, Sam and Andy turn their full attention to helping the dog Sam found recover from his injuries. Then they learn that Barry's plane has crashed, and they come to the terrifying realization that Sam was also supposed to have been killed on that plane. Barry was in far more serious trouble than either of them knew, and for Sam and Andy, the trouble is only beginning.
"Unleashed," David Rosenfelt's next Andy Carpenter mystery, is a thrilling read, full of Rosenfelt's trademark clever plotting, humor, and engaging prose.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Unlike Rosenfelt's supercharged stand-alones, books in the Andy Carpenter series are more leisurely, character-driven pleasures. With more than 10 in circulation, Rosenfelt has had plenty of time to hone his protagonist's wiseass humor and refine his oddball cast, which, alongside millionaire defense attorney Carpenter, includes four octogenarian computer whizzes, a taciturn bodyguard, and a brainiac accountant. Despite Andy's intention to abandon law (he regularly disses his profession) and devote himself full time to his three loves PI Laurie Collins, his golden retriever, and the Tara Foundation, a dog-rescue center (a real-life project the author founded) he can't get away from the system. Once again, the action involves a dog. When Sam Willis, Carpenter's accountant and friend, hits a stray dog on the road, he misses a plane trip with a high-profile investment counselor. The accident was fortunate for Sam (who adopts the dog) because the plane crashes. Later, Sam's would-be companion is found to have been poisoned, Sam is jailed for the murder, and Andy has no choice but to step in. Suggest this entertaining caper to fans of David Handler's Hoagy and Lulu books.--Zvirin, Stephanie Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Barry Price calls on accountant Sam Wills and lawyer Andy Carpenter for help with a matter he can't discuss over the phone. But while driving to meet Barry, Sam and Andy almost hit an injured dog with their car. They stop to help the dog, miss their meeting with Barry, and learn that his plane-which they might otherwise have been on-has crashed. Seasoned narrator Grover Gardner delivers yet another complex performance that offers plenty of intrigue and realistic character interpretations. Gardner's tone and style are aggressively honest, and he transitions deftly between the book's characters. A Minotaur hardcover. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
