When a friend, a newspaper owner, calls in a favor and asks him to protect his star reporter, Andy is less than thrilled. His new client is Daniel Cummings, a journalist who is being used as a mouthpiece by a brutal serial killer. Things only get worse when Daniel is discovered near the body of the murderer's latest victim. And after Andy himself starts collecting anonymous death threats, he hears the news every defense lawyer dreads...and moves to within a dangerous keystroke of becoming tomorrow's obituary.
"The real charm of this series lies in the wit of its affable narrator, who is not about to let an ongoing capital trial keep him from walking his beloved golden retriever, betting the point spread, or losing on the stock market. Add to this a likable supporting cast and a low-key love interest, and you have the legal-thriller genre's waggish rejoinder to Anthony Bruno and Janet Evanovich. A sure bet." (Booklist)

Abridged version hurts story
I love the Andy Carpenter character and this book didn't disappoint. HOWEVER, the abridged version made the storyline seem choppy and the flow of events abrupt. At times, an event will take place that seems completely out of context but changes the entire storeline. . . obviously the missing pieces were too important to cut out.

I loved this book! Andy Carpenter is so funny. Sometimes I wonder if he is related to my family. What a card! The book is a good mystery and just an overall upbeat read. If you don't want any more tension in your life, just a good time, with a good mystery then you should enjoy this book.
