The mysterious legacy of defence attorney Andy Carpenter's late father has made him a rich man - 22 million dollars rich, to be exact. But as Andy relaxes in his office, imagining ways to spend his money, he has an unexpected visitor: a stranger who confesses to decapitating and burning a man - coolly relaying on the confidentiality of attorney-client privilege. When an innocent man is charged with the crime, Andy decides to take on the case. But the case becomes personal when, in a stunning development, Andy's client is exonerated and his girlfriend, Laurie Collins, is accused of the crime. When the man who originally confessed to the murder turns up dead, Andy realises that this is much bigger than one crime. Who committed the murders? Who framed Laurie? In the case of his life, Andy must prove Laurie's innocence in this thrilling mystery from the always inventive David Rosenfelt

I have just recently discovered this author and his Andy Carpenter series -- this is book #2 in the series and it was as entertaining, had as many twists and turns, and a satisfying finale as his first effort. I will definitely be continuing with this series -- great new author for my reading pleasure!

Andy Carpenter is on another case; this time he has to prove his girlfriend did not murder a corrupt policeman. Funny dialogue, charming characters, and great courtroom high jinks.
