Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Andy Carpenter, laziest of lawyers, is back. He's always been a blessed anomaly in crime fiction. Given the herd of Byronic mopes who populate the genre, cheerful Andy is like a gulp of cold water on a steamy day. The same goes for his girlfriend, ex-cop Laurie. She's not one more bitter victim of the system. She enjoys digging into mysteries as much as she enjoys irritating Andy. As in all the Carpenter novels, in this one our breezy protagonists get into a situation that isn't funny. An ex-druggie is accused of starting a fire that killed a houseful of innocent people. The guilt-wracked suspect is sure he's the killer, though he really doesn't remember the five-years-cold incident. Why has it flared up again now? Why are we suddenly watching a U.S. senator lured into a honey trap? What's going on in that underground mine? Rosenfelt peels back the layers of puzzlement ever so skillfully, tantilizing us throughout until, finally, both Andy and the reader are enlightened, simultaneously. A gem.--Crinklaw, Do.

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Rosenfelt's winning ninth Andy Carpenter legal thriller (after Dog Tags), Paterson, N.J.'s most reluctant defense attorney agrees to defend recovering drug addict Noah Galloway, who's been arrested for setting a fire six years earlier that killed 26 people. Andy and Noah have two important connections: Noah tried to break into Andy's house about a year before the arson incident, and Noah was the original owner of Tara, Andy's beloved golden retriever. Though Noah remembers nothing about the fire, he tells Andy he's guilty. With Noah resigned to a life behind bars without parole, Andy does his usual sterling-and amusing-performance in the courtroom to stall for time. The colorful supporting cast provides some unusual assists: incurable pessimist Hike Lynch starts to look on the bright side; semiliterate Willie Miller decides to write a book; accountant and computer expert Sam Willis becomes a gun-packing field agent for Andy. The zany plot, despite its improbabilities, will keep readers turning the pages. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
