Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his humorous investigating team return in Santa's Little Yelpers, the next Yuletide mystery in David Rosenfelt's bestselling series. 'Tis the season in Paterson, New Jersey: Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his golden retriever, Tara, are surrounded by holiday cheer. It's even spread to the Tara Foundation. The dog rescue organization, not used to having puppies, has their hands full with a recent litter. Eight puppies are a lot to handle, and Andy is relieved when his co-worker Chris Myers agrees to foster them. Myers, a newer employee at the Tara Foundation, did time for a crime he swears he didn't commit. When Myers discovers a key witness against him lied on the stand, he goes to Andy to ask for representation in getting the conviction overturned. Myers thinks they can have this wrapped up by Christmas, no problem. But when the witness is murdered, and Myers is arrested for the crime, things go from bad to worse. Suddenly, it's all elves on deck to make a list and check it twice, so they can prove Myers is innocent"--

    Rosenfelt's twenty-sixth Andy Carpenter novel, starring the dog-loving, work-hating, stinking-rich retired lawyer from New Jersey, follows what has become a familiar pattern: a violent opening, then a lengthy account of Andy's lucky life. He tends his animal shelter, which has received a Christmastime litter of noisy puppies—the title's yelpers—squabbles with his wife, indulges his frat-rat humor with cronies at the sports bar, and gets pulled into a legal mess. This time the mess concerns a falsely accused man whose accuser recants and then suddenly dies. The plot is a bit confusing, and Andy's shtick is growing a bit wearisome—boasting about how ordinary he is, bragging about losing power struggles with his wife. Still, anybody who hates the Christmas season can't be all bad. Not the best in the series by a long shot, but Andy's loyalists—fellow dog lovers and work haters, no doubt—will be amused.
