Open and Shut
#50 Book Read in 2012
Open and Shut by David Rosenfelt
This is the first book in the Andy Carpenter series. Andy is a defense attorney. His father, right before he dies, asks Andy to handle the second trial of Willie, on death row for brutally killing a woman in a back alley. As Andy begins to mount a defense, he is set up as a pimp and beaten. Someone is not happy with the investigation that Andy is doing but why? And who? Andy is not one to give up easily and keeps digging with the help of his investigator and sometimes lover Laurie and fellow lawyer Kevin.
This book was a good mystery. It had twists and turns that kept me hooked until the end. Andy is an interesting character--he is not perfect at all, which makes him all the more real. I liked the chemistry between he and Laurie. I loved his dog Tara. I will definitely continue this series.
