The Book: You don't read one of Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter novels hoping for some profound insight. They likely will never win some hoity-toity award. You should read them because they are just plain entertaining. Some have excellent plots (like this one) others not so excellent... but they all are just a fine way to spend a few hours laughing and they are never ever boring. Wanna spend about eight hours doing something fun? Just for you? Buy and listen. A-
The Reader: Ahhh Grover. There is just no better voice to read Carpenter. Rosenfelt changes tenses about every six minutes, and Grover keeps up. Yeah... Grover suffers doing some characterizations... but who cares? HA! Wait 'til you hear him do Larry king. It's a hoot! In some books this would be important and even ruin the whole book. Here no. He so captures the tone and goofiness that is the Carpenter crowd... I pray he will be around forever. A.

Don’t buy this book! If… if you have NOT read Rosenfelt’s Andy Carpenter series from the beginning. Okay, this novel sizzles. It’s tightly plotted, the dialogue sparkles, the ensemble cast work tighter together thana Super Bowl defensive line. I reeeeely like these people. And Grover Gardener brings them alive. I cannot imagine anyone else “playing” smart-ass attorney Andy Gardner. Nope… change that… I don’t want to imagine anyone else.
The thing is that while Dog Tags stands alone, it refers back from time to time to cool stuff the characters did in early books. Which might spoil them for you. Soooooo… don’t take the chance.
If you’ve listened to (in order) Open And Shut, First Degree, Dead Center, and Play Dead… well, wuddahell… Get Dog Tags… listen and lovvit. Otherwise… Treat yourself from the beginning and... Don’t buy this book! Kay?
