      • content: Grover Gardner's narration is relaxed, natural, and easy to listen to. He turns Andy Carpenter into a likable, credible attorney with a strong ethical sense and a whole lot of attitude. Andy's mission this time is to win a new trial for a death row inmate accused of rape and murder. As Carpenter delves into the old case and discovers the evidence doesn't add up, he becomes convinced the man was framed--even though Carpenter's own father was the prosecutor who won the conviction. Gardner's voicing of minor characters gives them plausible personalities, and his performance smoothes over clunky plot contrivances. Gardner makes Rosenfelt's twisty story--especially the wisecracking defense counsel with his courtroom bag of tricks--extremely appealing. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

        April 22, 2002
        It's no surprise to find Harlan Coben giving a blurb to Rosenfelt's debut mystery, an homage to Coben's popular Myron Bolitar series. Like Bolitar, lawyer Andy Carpenter lives in suburban New Jersey, has strong bonds with his father, is a sports nut and has a refreshing lack of respect for wealth and power. Andy also has Myron's self-deprecating sense of humor, which allows him to make fun of his personal shortcomings. But Rosenfelt lacks both Coben's powerful narrative engine and gift for bringing weird minor characters to credible life. Andy, a flamboyant district attorney who dazzles the onlookers in Paterson with cute courtroom antics that probably wouldn't last a New York or L.A. minute, stumbles through a couple of plots that just don't ring true. When his father, Nelson, a straight-arrow DA, asks him to defend a death row rapist/murderer seeking a new trial, Andy reluctantly agrees. When the older man dies (spectacularly, at a Yankees game), a totally unexpected $22 million estate surfaces. On the side, Andy works to restart his failed marriage to an important politician's daughter while also pursuing his no-nonsense female chief investigator. Then Andy finds—much too conveniently—an old photograph linking his father and a bunch of boyhood friends to the original crime. We never learn enough about Nelson to understand or care about his guilt. Loose ends that a Coben would never have left to dangle undermine the ending. Hopefully, a more seasoned Rosenfelt will do better next time.
        (May 9)Forecast:Additional plugs from Donald E. Westlake and Margaret Maron, plus the author's status as former marketing president for Tri-Star Pictures, will ensure plenty of media attention for this Mystery Guild Featured Alternate.

shortDescription

Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys’ network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But the fun stops the day Andy’s dad, Paterson, New Jersey’s legendary ex-D.A., drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium. The shocks pile on as he discovers his dad left him with two unexpected legacies: a fortune of $22 million that Andy never knew existed… and a murder case with enough racial tinder to burn down City Hall. Struggling to serve justice and bring honor to his father, Andy must dig up some explosive political skeletons--and an astonishing family secret that can close his case (and his mouth) for good. Open and Shut heralds--no contest--the year’s most sensational new voice in mystery fiction: David Rosenfelt.
