angst, the-mob, dogs, law-enforcement, lawyers, murder, murder-investigation *****

The body in the closet, the NFL star with a smoking gun, the clueless lawyer, the regular Mob boss, the crazed Mob boss, and the murder trial from hell all factor into this compelling read. The suspense is awful and the characters certainly are, but I just couldn't put it down! Didn't hurt that there were references to Milwaukee, Norway, and Jeremiah. ( )

Caught with a dead body in his closet, and being the last person seen with the deceased the night before, Kenny Schilling seems to the police to be the prime and only suspect in the killing. But Kenny hires Andy Carpenter for his lawyer, and the more Andy digs into the case, the more Kenny appears to be innocent. It's up to Andy to track down the real killer in order to save Kenny from what seems to all concerned to be an open-and-shut case. But even Andy is fooled for a while. A quick read that will be hard to put down, this novel is another great tale in a wonderful series. ( )

Another fun, twisty mystery. I'm glad we didn't get into Kevin's hypochondria any more. That never fit very well. ( )

This is another in Rosenfelt's fast paced mystery/ court room drama series. I did not like it nearly as much as the others. it seemed formulaic and I solved it WAY too soon. I like a little surprise please. Had this been the first one I read, I wouldn't bother with the others. ( )
