Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Lawyer Andy Carpenter can finally take a breath; he's back on dry land after a family Caribbean cruise forced on him by his wife, Laurie, to get into the Christmas spirit. Of course the family's first stop is to the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization that has always been Andy's true passion. But when Andy arrives, his partner, Willie Miller, needs his help. Willie's old cellmate, Glenn Anson, has been arrested for murder. Andy doesn't necessarily believe in Glenn, but Willie does. And Andy believes in Willie, which is why Andy decides to take the case. Once again David Rosenfelt puts readers in the Christmas spirit in a tale that is equal parts mystery and holiday cheer.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 October #1
    Rosenfelt has written nearly two dozen novels starring laconic lawyer Andy Carpenter, and if we've seen this plot and these characters before, it won't deter the author's fans. He begins with a short, violent chapter: a misanthropic radio personality is shot. Then we accompany Andy and his wife, Laurie, to pick up their pooch. The kennel master gives Andy what he dreads most: a job. Two ex-gang members have been killed, and a man who is clearly innocent has been charged. Will Andy defend him? We know the answer. What follows is a trip into the gang world, which Rosenfelt handles in a low-key, realistic manner. The world is haunted by a mastermind named Luther, who turns out, when we meet him, to be something of a paper tiger. The matter goes to trial, and the reason for the radio guy's and the gang members' murders is revealed in a whodunit manner that won't surprise anyone who's been paying attention. But it's sarcastic Andy, not the plot, who is the real lure here. We love him because he isn't afraid to stall the action for a disquisition on M&M's. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
