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.

Monday morning will be a killer
Any additional comments?
Andy is as simple as it gets. He admits his dislike for work and I find his sense of humor to be fantastic. We listen together (spouse and myself) and it just kills me when our schedules turn and I must wait to begin listening again. We hold on to each word and laugh out loud with Andy's antics. The crimes are being described more graphically and this might not thrill some listeners. What I like most about David Rosenfelt's books are the real human traits of Andy, Lori, Pete and Sam. They have funny things to say and they don't take everything too seriously. Some of the plot is stretched too strange to be real, but this is why it is called fiction. I think the best part to the Andy Carpenter series is the "feel good" approach to daily life. A body needs laughter as much as air, water, food and shelter.

Andy Carpenter at his best!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
David Rosenfelt is a well educated man with a blue collar heart for sports dogs. His books astound me in his knowedge of legal matters, which I find very interesting. His stong suit is a really good story salted just right with humor, This is a very good listen with Grover Gardner at his best. I don't have trouble sleeping until I start one of David's books, I can't turn off my iPod. The best thing I can say is all David's Books are fun & captivating. If you enjoy a "who done it" that is also very enjoyable & entertaining you will not go wrong with this latest episode of David's best characters. I seldom rate a 5, this one was to me.a 5.

What other book might you compare Leader of the Pack to and why?
"Leader of the Pack" is another fun trip with a somewhat lazy lawyer, Andy Carpenter, that has been so much fun in many of David's Books in the past, such as "Dog Tags". While the characters are mostly the same David's Books are not a series by which you need to read in a special order. You can try any of David's Books & not be lost. Theey are all a lot of fun with great plots. The humor David uses is very much like my own. Perhaps that is why I never miss a new offering. He is just plain good & fun.
What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?
Grover ranks among my favorite narators. He can change voice to effectivily match the situation. Grover adds much to my enjoyment of David's Books. It takes a "Full House to beat this pair"!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This Book made me laugh much more than usual. One has to experience it to grasp my meaning. David, a person I do not know personally, impresses me as "the perfect person to have a beer & a chat with. He is an all American.

You will not waste a credit on "Leader of the Pack". Give David a listen! Careful, Andy Carpenter & company are addicting! John
