HOUNDED by David Rosenfelt
HOUNDED by David Rosenfelt is an engrossing first-person story layered with the protagonist’s smart-arsed remarks. From the start you root for Andy Carpenter, lawyer. Soon you’ll be rooting for Andy’s client too. They’re ably assisted by an impressive supporting cast.
Of particular joy is the way Andy’s actions seem almost predictable, as though you were there—thinking his thoughts with him—but then he confounds you and skips a few steps ahead. You’re left watching a clever man tumble through scary, touching and impossible scenes.
Though HOUNDED is the twelfth outing with Andy Carpenter, I thought this was my first, and the story holds up pretty well for a new reader. With such a backlog, what a treat I have coming!
A very satisfying story.
