Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

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.

Review by Library Journal (2012-06-01)

Lawyer Andy Carpenter (Dog Tags) is back re investigating a case he lost. He believes that his client Joey Desimone, now serving a life sentence in prison for murder, is innocent. The problem is that Joey is the son of a local Mafia don. Joey asks Andy to visit Joey's elderly uncle with Tara, his golden retriever. As always, Tara connects with the uncle, a former mob enforcer whose mental faculties are declining, but the uncle makes some statements that might hold clues to Joey's freedom. Nothing if not persistent, Andy follows that thread into a violent and troubled world.

Verdict: Rosenfelt writes with sarcasm and a self-deprecating humor that is hard to resist. Although dogs take a backseat to the story, the author takes the suspense up a notch, and the riveting plot won't disappoint fans.

Book description

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.
