Publisher's Summary

In Rescued, David Rosenfelt again delights listeners with the charm and wit they’ve come to expect. Even the most fervent fans of the sardonic Andy Carpenter and his team will be enthralled by this latest case, where the stakes have never been higher.  

Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter is reluctant to take on any more cases. He’d much rather spend his time working for his dog rescue organization, the Tara Foundation, than find himself back in a courtroom. However, when a truck carrying more than 70 dogs from the South to the rescue-friendly Northeast turns up with a murdered driver, Andy can’t help but get involved. 

Of course Andy is eager to help the dogs, many of whom come to the Tara Foundation while awaiting forever homes - it’s the man accused of murder who he has a problem defending. The accused just happens to be his wife Laurie’s ex-fiance; her tall, good looking, ex-Marine ex-fiance. Even though he acknowledges having argued with the victim, he swears that he is not a killer, and though he would rather not, Andy has to admit he believes he's telling the truth. 

For Andy, even with dozens of successful cases behind him, this case that his wife insists he take may prove to be his most difficult.

I absolutely love this series!!

The dry humour throughout keeps me laughing out loud and Grover Gardner is the best!! I just can’t imagine anyone else performing these amazing stories. I have listened to every book in the series and I have yet to figure out ‘who dunnit’ before Andy Carpenter enlightens us!! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each and every book and I’m always on the lookout for the next one!!!! If more stars were available...!!!

Still so good

I can’t think of another series that I’ve listen to to this point where the quality has stayed so high. Usually they become so formulaic or ridiculous. That is not the case with this series.

The books are always lighthearted but intelligent at the same time. The courtroom scenes and legal particulars are very interesting. Fantastic narration as always.

Rerun

Nothing new here. I may be getting tired of this series. I felt like I had heard it all before.

So far my favorite!

Stumbled onto this Andy Carpenter series, just downloaded my 5th one. I listen in the car as I drive 45 minutes to and from work. I love dogs and I love the characters in these books. Lots of depth, lots of humor, lots of intrigue.

Always a Pleasure

My husband and I always try to listen to an Andy Carpenter book when we are on a road trip. They are generally humorous and enjoyable. This one did not disappoint!

You just have to love Andy and his gang

This is a little below the usual standards for the Andy Carpenter series. I love all of the characters and most of the stories. I'm putting this one tiny star lower than usual, as it's not as filled out as usual. I would never miss a Carpenter novel, and wish he'd keep on writing them forever. I suppose he gets tired of his characters, but hey, he shouldn't have created such appealing people and introduced them to us. It's all his fault! I'm rarely interested in his off-series books - they rarely have the cadence and interest of this series. We'll humor David, but we just want more Andy and pals.

Grover Gardner is the perfect reader for this series. He sounds exactly right and is excellent - perfect pitch on all accounts.
