This Christmas, lawyer Andy Carpenter and his golden retriever, Tara, can't say no to helping six-year-old Adam and his dachshund, Simon.
Christmas is the time for giving. Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his wife, Laurie, generously give back year-round, but they always try to do a little something extra around the holidays. Andy’s local pet store has a Christmas tree where instead of ornaments, there are wishes from those in need. This leads Andy to six-year-old Adam, whose selfless plea strikes a chord with Andy and Laurie. Adam asked Santa for a coat for his mother, food for his dachshund, Simon, and for the safe return of his missing father.
It turns out Adam’s father doesn't want to be found...he's on the run from a murder charge - a murder that Adam’s mother swears he didn’t commit.
With his trademark humor and larger-than-life characters, Rosenfelt never fails to deliver as Andy and his eccentric crew dash to reunite a family in time for Christmas.
Praise for Grover Gardner as Andy Carpenter:
"Grover Gardner's narration of Rosenfelt's whodunits is what good audiobooks are all about.... Gardner's delightful portrayal of defense lawyer Andy Carpenter continues to be fresh, allowing listeners to glimpse Andy's soft heart and quick humor." (AudioFile Magazine on Outfoxed)
"Gardner's breezy, slightly sarcastic delivery is just what's needed for Rosenfelt's breezy, slightly sarcastic mysteries featuring multimillionaire New Jersey lawyer Andy Carpenter." (PW on Play Dead)
