Synopses & Reviews
Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesnt mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joeys familys connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isnt much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joeys elderly uncle. Hed rather not, but as a favor to Joey, Andy agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits.
The old mans memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why hes there, it jogs something in the mans mind, and his comments leave Andy wondering if Uncle Nick is confused, or if he just might hold the key to Joeys freedom after all this time. Andy grabs on to this thread of possibility and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties, and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets are kept.
Riveting, suspenseful, and highly entertaining, Leader of the Pack is bestseller David Rosenfelts latest entry in his much-beloved Andy Carpenter series.

A gem.” —Booklist (starred) on One Dog Night
