Leader of the Pack (Andy Carpenter, Bk 10)
Leader of the Pack - Andy Carpenter, Bk 10 Author:David Rosenfelt Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn’t mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey’s family’s connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his convictio... more »n. While there isn’t much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey’s elderly uncle. He’d rather not, but as a favor to Joey, Andy agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits.
The old man’s memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why he’s there, it jogs something in the man’s mind, and his comments leave Andy wondering if Uncle Nick is confused, or if he just might hold the key to Joey’s freedom after all this time. Andy grabs on to this thread of possibility and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties, and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets are kept.« less

I do like the Andy Carpenter series but this one just couldn't hold my attention.
It started out okay because it has to take time to get the story going, but this one just seemed to drag on and on and Rosenfelt seemed to use the sarcasm more and there was so much more descriptions in this book that just made it seem to be draggy and boring.
I will still read this series as long as the stories are better than this one, I think this was just a desperate attempt for another book to sell.
I have read nearly all of David Rosenfelt's books and always look forward to those that he will be publishing or those which I have yet to read. I recently finished "Leader of the Pack" -- once again, I enjoyed his style of writing, quick wit/sense of humor and ability to keep me in suspense. Was this particular book my favorite? No. Did I thoroughly enjoy it and recommend it to others? Absolutely!
