In Dead Center, we find our beloved Andy Carpenter re-entering the dating scene. Surprisingly he's a hot commodity, but that's not necessarily a good thing. His friends are offering up their two cents on his dating life, but of course they know as little about the dating world as Andy. One thing that rings true, whether the ladies he meets are terrific or not, is that the spectra of his longtime love Laurie hangs over his head. Bitter over her departure, he's finding it hard to forgive and forget. She's still the love of his life. Andy's had no contact with her at all, and he can only assume she is back in Findlay, Wisconsin serving in the number two job on the local police force. Then one day he returns to the office to find Laurie waiting for him. She's arrested a young man for murder and though the evidence clearly called for his arrest, she believes he's innocent. He's the son of her oldest friend and she's come to Andy to find him representation.

"Grover Gardner's narrative style is clear but low-key, a style that fits Andy Carpenter, Rosenfelt's series hero. Andy's soul mate, Laurie Collins, has moved back to Finlay, Wisconsin, where two coeds have been brutally murdered. As acting police chief, she asks Andy to help discover who the killer is. Gardner's pleasant tones change pitch and inflection to accommodate the wonderful characters of various ages and idiosyncrasies. When he speaks as a native, he does fail to replicate a Midwestern accent, but his reading perfectly evokes the suspense and drama of a criminal investigation and the boredom of a stakeout. Dog lovers will enjoy Andy's faithful companion, Tara. S.C.A. 2007 Audies Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
