David Rosenfelt, a native of Paterson, New Jersey, is a graduate of NYU. He was the former marketing president for Tri-Star Pictures before becoming a writer of novels and screenplays. Open And Shut was his first novel; First Degree, his second novel, was named a best book of 2003 by Publishers Weekly. He currently lives in Southern California with his wife and 35 dogs.


Grover Gardner, a Washington, D.C.-based actor, director and audiobook narrator, has been a member of the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, as well as Resident Director at Everyman Theatre in Baltimore. Recently, he has been active in educational theater, directing student productions for local universities, and teaching graduate-level courses in acting and voice-over work. He has recorded over 450 audiobooks and was named by AudioFile Magazine as one of "Best Voices of the Century."

"This solid, well-crafted mystery is bolstered by the sheer likability of the outspoken protagonist, who doesn't take guff from anyone. As usual, veteran narrator Gardner reads the role brilliantly, giving Carpenter the right balance of playfulness, curiosity, and mystery. His tones, usually full of subtle nuance, seem broader and more in your face. He narrates in a thick, meaty East Coast accent (for example, call sounds something like cole), tossing off the frequent asides and witticisms with an impish snap. Listeners will pick up on the comic elements of the novel through Gardner's impressive reading."

Publishers Weekly
"Gardner is one of the stars of audiobook narration and he reinforces that reputation here."
