Leader of the Pack is the story of a man who, like many men, had been going through his life apparently content and positively clueless, who found himself tethered to a tornado as his marriage descended into violence and madness. Surviving courts and cops and chaos and a crazy-challenging-business, he unexpectedly ended up the only parent of five small children--ranging in age from only 18 months to 8 years old--at a time when most men didn't even know how to change a diaper. It is my story.In it, I detail the transformation transformation I underwent from sole breadwinner and "back-up" parent to sole parent; from a scared and unsure shell of a man to the strong, confident and spiritual person I am today - as well as a business leader and a voice for single dads everywhere.Though the facts of my story may be different than some, the feelings are the same for single father's everywhere. We are frustrated. We're no longer just the backup parent; the ringer sent in when Mom isn't available -- though that was all we had ever been trained for when it came to parenting. It's not that we don't love our children. We do, but that and $5 will get you a latte at Starbucks.We are told by many voices (and silent looks) from counselors, teachers, social workers, judges and our mothers, sisters and ex-wives that we aren't as capable of raising kids as a woman. We may even feel that assessment is true. We feel helpless and undermined and above all, alone in this. But we are not alone. A quarter of all American households are headed by men who find themselves or choose to be single dads. We need to own that position, be proud of it, figure out the best way to make it work and above all, add our voice to a swelling chorus of support for our brothers who find themselves in our same shoes. We must learn to parent like a dad and that does not mean being only half of a team. In my life, and in the lives of millions of men today, we are the parent. Where there were two, now there is one and we must be enough. Lives depend on it...our kid's lives.We could win our kids, raise them to be happy and healthy people and manage to have a big, fun, and exciting life while we were doing so. Life wasn't over for us. In fact, it was just beginning and beyond the doors swinging open lay a road we never could have foreseen--one filled with adventure and laughter and even sex.I surely never would have believed it. On the day my life changed forever, I looked wildly around any means of escape, but all I saw were their pale and frightened faces, staring up at me. Five little kids, the oldest was only eight and the youngest still a toddler--my kids--all mine now. Their mother had staged one last violent, terrifying episode and left us forever. Where there were once two-parents, there was now only one.It felt like something had torn a large hole in my chest and ripped out my lungs. I couldn't breathe. Then the breath rushed back in and I heard the most heartbreaking crying. It wasn't until later that I realized the sound was coming from me.

Shifters are unknown to the human world, with the exception of a secret organization—the EOS, referred to as “hunters.” Hunters capture and kill. Some shifters are taken to labs for testing—a place they will never leave—others are deemed useless, a danger to society, and are killed. Shifters travel in packs, constantly moving, and keep themselves hidden to avoid discovery. Horse shifter Flo now travels in a wild pack with what remains of the shape-shifter circus she once performed in. She, bear shifter Jett, and the others seek a new home—somewhere they can feel safe and protected—and a fresh start. As they grow closer to this goal, someone who betrayed them in the past returns to ruin their best hope of finding a secure future. With no memory of life before the circus, Flo, an orphan like the others, is unsure how to live in this new world. But then she’s presented with news: one of her relatives is alive. The discovery comes at a cost, but Flo and her friends will do anything to rescue family, even if it means facing the hunters again.

Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn't mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey's family's connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey's elderly uncle. He'd rather not, but as a favor to Joey, Andy agrees to take his dog, Tara, on a few visits. The old man's memory is going, but when Andy tries to explain why he's there, it jogs something in the man's mind, and his comments leave Andy wondering if Uncle Nick is confused, or if he just might hold the key to Joey's freedom after all this time. Andy grabs on to this thread of possibility and follows it into a world where the oath of silence is stronger than blood ties, and where people will do anything to make sure their secrets are kept. Riveting, suspenseful, and highly entertaining, Leader of the Pack is bestseller David Rosenfelt's latest entry in his much-beloved Andy Carpenter series.
