Summary
"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 fourteen 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"--
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Try to ignore the shaky pun of the title and the fact that the pup appears only long enough in the beginning to set the plot in motion. The novel quickly becomes a diverting procedural, the latest in author Rosenfelt's maturing series featuring lazy, dog-loving lawyer Andy Carpenter. His client stands accused falsely, of course of a 14-year-old murder, and to spring him, Andy must also, of course find the real killer. Andy's poking about reveals a deeper mystery, complete with murderous attacks, the puzzling involvement of world-class criminals, and a sinister plot concerning ""routers."" Andy has to do research to find out what those are. Or, being Andy, he gets a friend to do it. Readers might be relieved that Andy's tiresome high-school humor, incessant in the earlier novels, is fading. Answering a threat with ""These hands are registered with the American Bar Association"" is as bad as it gets. And it's a pleasure to read a mystery where every sentence, even every word, advances the plot or comments on it.--Don Crinklaw Copyright 2010 Booklist"
