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 afavor 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.

Author Rosenfelt has a sure winner with Andy Carpenter taking the lead. Another great legal thriller, with humor and suspense equally in the mix. I wholeheartedly recommend this series to anyone looking for light entertainment - no blood and gore, but plenty of twists and turns.

Rosenfelt's books featuring Andy Carpenter & friends are as close to a sure bet as you can get. Each is a well constructed, smart legal procedural with engaging characters that are fully formed & will make you laugh out loud. And it has Tara, the Wonder Dog....what else do you need?

Andy Carpenter lost a case and his client is serving time for murder. However, Andy never thought Joey was guilty. When new evidence emerges, Andy gets the case reopened. A highly entertaining story, as usual!
