Publisher's Summary

If there aren't any real-life lawyers as entertaining, as witty, and as willing to tilt at windmills as Andy Carpenter, Edgar-finalist Rosenfelt's engaging series hero, then there should be. Carpenter, the Paterson, N.J., lawyer whose wealth allows him to work as seldom as he chooses, is recovering from the loss of the love of his life, Laurie Collins, who has moved home to Findlay, Wis., to become the acting chief of police. When Laurie calls Andy for help after arresting 21-year-old Jeremy Davidson for murders that she thinks he didn't commit, Andy can't resist heading off to Findlay with his faithful dog, Tara.
There's damning evidence against Jeremy, accused of killing two young women, one of whom he was romantically involved with. Andy is forced to pry into the closed society of Center City, home of the victims and a peculiar religious sect called the Centurions.

There's a new man in my life ...

Meet Andy Carpenter. A lawyer who accidently becomes a millionaire, he likes living in Jersey, eating junk food, drinking in the same bar with the same friends and watching sports. Sounds like a nightmare? No way. Andy also saves abandoned dogs and is romantic enough to leave the mean streets of Jersey for rural midwest Ohio when the love of his life needs him. Grover Gardiner as reader is a bonus, his deadpan delivery of the one liners and self deprecating humour a delight. This is definitely a new man in my life and I want to get to know him better.

Shame about the narrator

Goodish book but the narrator's droll is rather dire and although he is reading it as I am sure the writer wanted it just adds to the monotony. Rather slow paced and this makes it drag.
