Summary

"Narrator Grover Gardner...makes the experience of listening to this audiobook as delightful as can be." (AudioFile Magazine)

This Christmas, lawyer Andy Carpenter and his golden retriever, Tara, can't say no to helping young Danny and his dachshund, Murphy.

Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his wife, Laurie, have started a new Christmas tradition. Their local pet store has a Christmas tree, where instead of ornaments there are wishes from those in need. One poignant wish leads Andy to a child named Danny, whose selfless plea strikes a chord. Danny asked Santa for a coat for his mother, a sweater for his dachshund, Murphy, and for the safe return of his missing father. 

It turns out Danny’s father doesn't want to be found, he’s on the run after just being arrested for a murder that took place 14 years ago - a murder that Danny’s mother swears he didn’t commit. 

With his trademark humor and larger-than-life characters - including a police officer and his K-9 partner, Simon - Rosenfelt never fails to deliver as Andy and his eccentric crew dash to reunite a family in time for Christmas.

Critic reviews

"Narrator Grover Gardner delivers an exciting performance as the character of Andy Carpenter, an eccentric lawyer who hates to work but gets roped by his wife into defending a man accused of a fourteen-year-old murder. With effective pacing and a sense of energy sometimes held back deliberately and at other times released with gusto, Gardner makes the experience of listening to this audiobook as delightful as can be. Listeners will hang on every word as Andy fights to free his client. He becomes especially endearing to listeners when he takes on an additional client, a police dog, an action that leads to Andy's salvation later in the audiobook." (AudioFile Magazine)

Tried to make it last.

As always I’m sad when I finish another Andy Carpenter book. I do my best to try and not binge listen to them but I have no self control. I enjoy everything about this series except waiting for the next one to come out. K Team? Oh I hope so!! Thanks to Grover Gardner. My top pick in favorite narrators.

A four dog mystery

As with all the other books in this series it is humorously written and read by Grover Gardner who is as always at his best. Andy Carpenter will make you love lawyers!

Set up for his new series

Wife, Marcus, and retired K-9 cop with dog, are forming a private detective business. Essentially this story is the leadup to a new series. Grover Gardner is fabulous, otherwise, plot is very week, but Andy's trademark humor is the only good thing about the book. I love this series, this book disappoints.

Great listen

As always Grover Gardner narrates our favorite lawyer well! Great listen around the holidays! I can’t wait for the next one in the Andy Carpenter series. I hope David Rosenfelt keeps this series alive!

Another Great Story

the story line was well written and the narrator does a fantastic job of telling the story. I can't wait for this new K-Team story to begin.

No, not the dachshund!

A short intriging mystery that keeps the listener wanting more. You will probably never suspect who is the murderer. Listen intently or you will miss the clues and motive.

Better than expected

Looked like a fun light listen, and yes it certainly is. It exceeded my expectations for having a great plot and interesting characters. I really enjoyed this.

Another fun visit with Andy!

I enjoy all the Andy Carpenter books! The narrator is great!! Are the books a bit predictable? Yes-but none of us want to see Andy lose a case!! The fun is in Andy figuring out the puzzle and in the personalities of all of Andy’s peeps.

It's Not Over Till....

Love this narrator. A little snarky with a big heart and curiosity that doesn't end with the jury's verdict. Will definitely try another David Rosenfelt audio book.
