"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.
"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)
