Edgar-nominated author David Rosenfelt returns with his hero, Andy Carpenter, who must defend a football player accused of murder. The Giants' running back Kenny Schilling stands accused of killing Troy Preston, a wide receiver for the Jets. As Andy investigates, he finds that Troy is not the only football player who was killed after contact with Kenny...and his snooping starts to set off alarms with a drug king.

Why must it be abridged?

I love this series. Grover Gardner does a perfect job with the narration. When I first heard his voice I thought, "this guy sounds like a smart alec, know-it-all, annoying geek." Since that's pretty much Andy Carpenter in a nutshell it works well and even though Andy is all these things he's still a very likable character. I will never understand the purpose of abridging a book like this. It's not like it's Pillars of the Earth length and they aren't saving any money on CD's when it's sold on Audible.com . If a book needs editing it should be done before it's published. Abridged versions deny the fan base their reasonable expectation to hear the book as the author intended. I know I turned a review into a rant against publishers (for that I apologize) but it's really frustrating to have to pay good money for only part of the story, or interrupt a series by buying the print version and not be able to listen to it during the long commute.

Fair abridgment

I really hate abridged books. This one, although relatively well done, still leaves the reader wondering about some of the missing bits. Great series, and an entertaining read. I just want it all.
