Andy Carpenter's accountant, Sam Willis, is stunned to receive a phone call out of the blue from Barry Price, a high school friend he hasn't spoken to in years, pleading for help with something too frightening to discuss on the phone. Barry needs Sam's financial acumen and lawyer Andy Carpenter's legal expertise—and he needs them immediately. But when Sam almost runs over an injured dog lying in the road on the way to Barry's house, he can't drive off without waiting for help to arrive. By the time Sam makes it, Barry's already taken off on a private airplane headed who-knows-where.
Assuming their help is no longer needed, Sam and Andy turn their full attention to helping the dog Sam found recover from his injuries. Then they learn that Barry's plane has crashed, and they come to the terrifying realization that Sam was also supposed to have been killed on that plane. Barry was in far more serious trouble than either of them knew, and for Sam and Andy, the trouble is only beginning.
Unleashed, David Rosenfelt's next Andy Carpenter mystery, is a thrilling read, full of Rosenfelt's trademark clever plotting, humor, and engaging prose.
Barry Price calls on accountant Sam Wills and lawyer Andy Carpenter for help with a matter he can't discuss over the phone. But while driving to meet Barry, Sam and Andy almost hit an injured dog with their car. They stop to help the dog, miss their meeting with Barry, and learn that his plane which they might otherwise have been on has crashed. Seasoned narrator Grover Gardner delivers yet another complex performance that offers plenty of intrigue and realistic character interpretations. Gardner's tone and style are aggressively honest, and he transitions deftly between the book's characters. A Minotaur hardcover.
What a great read. Twists and turns abound. I love the Andy Carpenter series and also this authors stand alone books. I want for Andy and Laurie to marry and Willie and Sondra to have a baby. But I'll be happy just looking forward to another book with Andy and Tara.
I have been a die-hard fan since the first book of this series. I know some of the plot lines get a little out there, but the dialog and the wit keep me coming back for more.
