Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Winner, Mystery, 2014
Andy Carpenter's accountant, Sam Willis, receives a surprise call from Barry Price, a friend he hasn't spoken to in years. Barry needs Sam's financial acumen and Andy's legal expertise. But when Sam almost runs over an injured dog on the way to Barry's house, he can't drive off without waiting for help. By then, Barry's taken off on a private airplane headed to who-knows-where. Soon after they learn that Barry's plane has crashed, and they come to the terrifying realization that Sam was also supposed to have been killed on that plane. Barry was in far more serious trouble than either of them knew, and for Sam and Andy, the trouble is only beginning.

Rosenfelt / Gardner just keep getting better.

Unless you missed out on the Humor Gene, you will love every entry in Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series -- each one more than the last. If you have not yet listened to an Andy Carpenter novel, and are thinking of purchasing "Unleashed," I would suggest that you first listen to its predecessors, starting with "Open and Shut." Although Rosenfelt does a good job filling in needed backstory with each novel in the Andy Carpenter series, you will miss out on some of the fun if you jump into the middle of the series -- and Andy Carpenter 𝙙𝒆𝙛𝙞𝙣𝒆𝙨 the word "fun." This series loosely falls into the "legal thriller" genre, since Andy Carpenter -- despite all of his hilarious shenanigans -- is, in fact, a brilliant defense attorney; and these novels do feature action heroes, scary predicaments, and bad guys galore. They also feature brilliant courtroom scenes that will both entertain and impress you.

If you love dogs, then Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series is required reading for you. In fact, 𝙖𝙡𝙡 of Rosenfelt's novels will fall into that category -- particularly his stand-alone novels, in case you lack the Humor Gene, because they have more serious plots, still featuring dogs. Yes, Rosenfelt loves dogs unconditionally, inordinately, and obsessively, including them prominently in all of his novels. In fact, it speaks profoundly to his writing skill that I -- not a dog lover -- love his novels, dogs and all (until he says something bad about cats, that is, which he never does).

If you are a sports-loving couch potato, then Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series is required reading for you; because brilliant legal genius Andy Carpenter is also a sports-loving couch potato. I hope that no future character in this series forces Andy to choose between football and dogs, because that would put Andy into an untenable situation. (I think that he would choose dogs.) Again, Rosenfelt's excellent writing and plotting skills even overcome 𝙢𝙮 complete ignorance, apathy, and distaste for all spectator sports. I couldn't tell a football from a baseball bat, wouldn't know a sports star if he rode up on a bicycle, and have never owned a television; yet still I love Rosenfelt's novels: That shows how well he writes.

Get it? You can't go wrong with "Unleashed."

Self Deprecating Humor and Mystery Novel

Oh one cannot help but just love the Andy Carpenter series. This series has darling smart dogs, lawyers, judges, cops, investigators, murder, mystery, money, humor, sports, love and sex (millionaire Andy can never get enough from the love of his life, Laurie). The stories are set in Patterson, New Jersey, Andy's childhood home.
Grover Gardner is the perfect narrator, he makes Andy Carpenter come alive; his pitch, cadence and pace make this series a must listen. Mr. Rosenfelt, we await your next Andy, Laurie, Tara and friends story.
