Genre: Legal Thriller
Published: 2003
Personal Rating: 4/5
Yearly Count: 61

Andy Carpenter is back! And, he's back with his girlfriend, PI Laurie Collins. The good news is that Andy's circumstances allow him to pick and choose what clients he wants to represent. The bad news is he has accepted Laurie as his client when she is accused of murder.

This is actually my third encounter with Andy, but First Degree is the second in the series. What I enjoy most is Andy's wit and the courtroom scenes. While there are still murder scenes and maybe a tense scene, here or there, Rosenfelt writes with a flow that makes me feel comfortable and one that has continually pleased. The ending in this one had some spots that were too pat, but still enjoyable. I look forward to Bury the Lead.


  1. I really like this series, I think because of how much he loves his dog. Oh, and the stories.

  2. Sounds gripping! And congrats on 11 challenges finished! I'm still trying to finish 1 for the year...but I think I'm finally getting close. Doesn't help that I keep joining more!

  3. Carrie K ~ LOL

    Trish ~ This is a fun, quick reading series.

    I know the feeling! I complete a few, then add a few more.
