Summary

"Grover Gardner's narration of Rosenfelt's whodunits is what good audiobooks are all about...Gardner's delightful portrayal of defense lawyer Andy Carpenter continues to be fresh, allowing listeners to glimpse Andy's soft heart and quick humor." -- AudioFile Magazine on Outfoxed

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 over seventy 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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "New Jersey defense attorney Andy Carpenter has a soft spot for strays both his clients and the dogs who end up at his rescue organization. In his seventeenth outing, however, he's not as sympathetic to his client as is usually the case. That's probably because Dave Kramer is his wife's handsome, still-single ex-boyfriend. Dave is accused of killing the truck driver who had been hauling 70 dogs from overcrowded shelters in the south to the northeast to find new homes. Kramer had been arguing with the driver but claims to be innocent of the crime. Curiously, there are fingerprints in the truck belonging to a man wanted by the FBI. So irreverent Andy finds himself in the middle of a case of international intrigue. The dogs in this realistic series aren't anthropomorphized crime solvers, but they can be very cuddly, and they always show the reader that, for all his wisecracking, Andy has a heart of gold. Series fans will welcome this latest installment, and those unfamiliar with Andy and his crew will be delighted to have so much catching up to do.--Keefe, Karen Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Edgar-finalist Rosenfelt's cleverly plotted 17th mystery featuring Paterson, N.J., defense lawyer and dog rescuer Andy Carpenter (after 2017's Collared), Andy gets a call about 61 dogs found in a tractor trailer parked at a rest stop on the Garden State Parkway. Andy later learns that the trailer's driver, Kenny Zimmer, has been shot and that the shooter is his wife Laurie's ex-boyfriend, former cop and sometime PI Dave Kramer. Kramer admits to the fatal shooting, but claims he acted in self-defense after Zimmer attacked him with a knife. Andy reluctantly agrees to defend Kramer, but it won't be easy, especially when a knife isn't found at the crime scene. It looks like a setup or maybe a hit gone wrong, and Andy's digging soon puts him in the crosshairs of some very bad people. Andy is an affable, funny narrator, and his Nick and Nora-like banter with Laurie, a highly capable ex-cop, leavens the dark deeds they uncover. Series fans and newcomers alike will have fun.
