Sudden Death by David Rosenfelt

Saturday, November 24, 2007

Challenge: 2nds
Andy Carpenter's affair with Laurie and how that relationship progresses is a sidebar to the main courtroom action of Andy defending a famous football player from the charge of murdering a player from a rival team. A Hollywood screenwriter sent to write about a previous case that Andy had won, helps with that defense; finding a series of deaths that may get Andy's client off the hook. In this novel, I found Andy's insecurities about Laurie out of character with his expertise and cunning as a trial lawyer. His whining was annoying and often the dialog, flat. But, as in the first book, the investigation and courtroom antics were riveting and entertaining. And Andy's love for his dog, Tara, is quite endearing. While I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one, I'm willing to read more of the series since I've heard so many good things.
Rating: 3.5

That's too bad that this one didn't quite live up to its predecessor. Hopefully future books in the series will be better.

I won't add this series to my list until you read 1 or 2 more. I'll let you continue to test the waters before I jump in.Just thought I'd let you know that since Candleman has retired he's regularly posting on his blogs, Carpe Crustulum. They are interesting posts and he would love to hear from you.
