Third in the Andy Carpenter, defense lawyer in New Jersey series. When a serial killer begins calling a local newspaper reporter with details of the killings, the city is in thrall watching the story unfold. When the reporter is found at the scene of the fourth victim with a head injury, the apparent victim of the killer, things get tense. When it's learned that the murdered woman is a high-powered political watchdog, and some of the reporter's statements don't ring true, he's suddenly arrested for her murder, and Andy's on board as his defense attorney.
I really like this series! The book is well-plotted with plenty of twists, turns and red herrings, although I have to admit I had one of those "that's the bad guy!" moments when the person in question was introduced, I had no idea how or why the killings were done, and I doubted my gut feeling a few times along the way. You gotta read to the end of these books, that's for sure! Well done.
Lawyer Andy Carpenter is asked to help his friend Vince with the defense of his son in a serial murder case. There are several surprises in this book. Friendship, the "mob", family ties, and publicity all are part of this book. It wasn't the best read I've had recently, but pretty good.
I haven't read anything like this before. It's a really funny attorney who reminds you of some of the funnier female detectives. I enjoyed it, but a steady diet of it would get old, however, I will look for more by this author. A wise cracking attorney defending someone accused of being a serial killer is a different concept.
This is a fantastic book that will not disappoint! This legal thriller has many surprising twists with an ending that will keep you thinking for a long time. This is the third book I have read by D. Rosenfelt and have enjoyed every one!
