In Dead Center, we find our beloved Andy carpenter reentering the dating sceneGod Bless him. Surprisingly he’s a hot commodity, but that’s not necessarily a good thing. His friends are offering up their two cents on his dating life, but of course they know as little about the dating world as Andy. One thing that rings true, whether the ladies he meets are terrific or not, is that the spectra of his longtime love Laurie hangs over his head. Bitter over her departure, he’s finding it hard to forgive and forget. She’s still the love of his life. Andy’s had no contact with her at all, and he can only assume she is back in Findlay, Wisconsin serving in the number two job on the local police force. Then one day he returns to the office to find Laurie waiting for him. She’s arrested a young man for murder and though the evidence clearly called for his arrest, she believes he’s innocent. He’s the son of her oldest friend and she’s come to Andy to find him representation. Andy follows Laurie back to Wisconsin where he must explore a secretive religious community that seems to hold the truth about what really happened to the deceased.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If there aren’t any real-life lawyers as entertaining, as witty, and as willing to tilt at windmills as Andy Carpenter…then there should be…Written with flair and humor, this is perfect light reading.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“An inspired match for the amusingly self-deprecating, sarcastic, animal-loving, freewheeling, wisecracking, wily lawyer…Using a voice and sensibility reminiscent of Nathan Lane (complete with verbal eye-rolls), Gardner smartly unfolds Rosenfelt’s yarn, in which Carpenter is at his hilarious best.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Gardner’s pleasant tones change pitch and inflection to accomodate the wonderful characters of various ages and idiosyncrasies…His reading perfectly evokes the suspense and drama of a criminal investigation and the boredom of a stakeout.” AudioFile
“Adroitly mixes drama with humor…Where most legal-thriller authors explore the crime, Rosenfelt spends more time on the context and on the man investigating the crime. Those who like the added complexity of character-driven mysteries will find much to enjoy in this award-winning series.” Booklist
“A fast-paced story that’s hard to put down, a mystery spiced with interesting characters and brightened by the flames of a rekindled love affair. Recommended.” Library Journal
