Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn't mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey's family's connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey's elderly uncle. He'd rather not, but as a favor to Joey, Andy agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits.

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.

Riveting, suspenseful, and highly entertaining, Leader of the Pack is bestseller David Rosenfelt's latest entry in his much-beloved Andy Carpenter series.

Great writing, humorous and entertaining. David Rosenfelt has written a wonder mystery filled with the unjustly incarcerated, mobsters, hit men and Marcus. Add in a golden retriever, a beautiful woman and, of course, the smart mouth lawyer, Andy Carpenter and you have a winning combinationmore
Andy Carpenter is back with his witty humor and millions of dollars. He doesn’t have to work if he doesn’t want to and usually takes cases he knows he wins. But those losers still haunt him. Such is the fact of Joey Desimone who was convicted of murder and has spent the past nine years in prison. Of course, he says he’s innocent and Andy believes him. His father is also a crime boss which makes it difficult for Andy . With a new piece of information, Andy follows the ever so thin trail to see where it leads.I have read all the Andy Carpenter novels and enjoy the sarcastic nature of Andy and his travels through New Jersey. Rosenfelt certainly keeps you guessing and the mystery holds throughout. But this time around Andy isn’t as sarcastic as when I first began reading, although still a funny guy. Andy’s friends and/or co-workers are not used as much in this novel and are more or less background (except for two). Still an enjoyable mystery, just not up to par with what I expect from this series.more
This page-turner continues to show Andy Carpenter at his best. At the same time that he's lazy and irreverent, he takes on another case of an underdog, this time a mob boss's son whom he defended unsuccessfully six years earlier. With new evidence, Carpenter determines to set the record staright with a new trial to find the guy innocent this time around. Carpenter's sarcasm and integrity make for an appealing combination, and the plot moves along very quickly.more
