This is the third in a series and I am happily looking forward to working my way through the entire series. The author does a nice job of offering some interesting twists and turns, the dialogue is witty, the characters are entertaining. What more could a reader ask for in terms of light entertainment for a few hours?

(The third book in the Andy Carpenter series)

Andy Carpenter is a smarmy, wise-ass attorney in Florida who lucked into some big bucks and plays a sort of part-time pro bono lawyer and full-time dog lover. The charm of the books is not in the mystery or the clever lawyering but in the witty chatter and lighthearted tone.

This particular case involves a newspaper reporter who follows some serial murders and ends up being charged as the murderer. Andy gets talked into representing him and soon begins to suspect that his client may actually be guilty. There are no big plot surprises after that, but the book will keep you amused for an evening or three.

I really like Rosenfelt's writing. It's concise, humorous, with unexpected nuggets of deep thought disguised seamlessly through the plot
