Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter usually tries to avoid taking
on new cases at all costs. But this time, heâ€™s happyâ€”eager,

murder, Andy may find himself facing a killer more dangerous
than he ever imagined.
With his trademark wit, larger-than-life characters, and
clever plotting, David Rosenfelt delivers another gripping
