This Christmas mystery, featuring criminal defense lawyer Andy Carpenter and his faithful golden retriever, Tara, showcases Rosenfelt’s trademark humor and larger-than-life characters. Reluctant lawyer Andy Carpenter doesn’t usually stop to help others, but seeing a dog next to a homeless man inspires him to give the pair some money to help. It’s just Andy’s luck that things don’t end there. Soon after Andy’s encounter with them, man and dog are attacked in the middle of the night on the street. The dog defends its new owner, and the erstwhile attacker is bitten but escapes. But the dog is quarantined, and the man, Don Carrigan, is heartbroken. Andy’s wife, Laurie, can’t resist helping the duo after learning Andy has met them before...it’s the Christmas season, after all. In a matter of days, Don and his dog, Zoey, are living above Andy’s garage and become two new additions to the family. It’s not until Andy accidentally gives away his guest’s name during an interview that things go awry; turns out Don is wanted for a murder that happened two years ago. Don not only claims he’s innocent, but that he had no idea he was wanted for a crime he has no knowledge of in the first place. It’s up to Andy to exonerate his new friend, if he doesn’t get pulled into the quagmire first. David Rosenfelt’s signature wit, charm, and cleverness are back again in this most exciting installment yet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grover Gardner.

In Rescued, David Rosenfelt again delights listeners with the charm and wit they’ve come to expect. Even the most fervent fans of the sardonic Andy Carpenter and his team will be enthralled by this latest case, where the stakes have never been higher. Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter is reluctant to take on any more cases. He’d much rather spend his time working for his dog rescue organization, the Tara Foundation, than find himself back in a courtroom. However, when a truck carrying more than 70 dogs from the South to the rescue-friendly Northeast turns up with a murdered driver, Andy can’t help but get involved. Of course Andy is eager to help the dogs, many of whom come to the Tara Foundation while awaiting forever homes - it’s the man accused of murder who he has a problem defending. The accused just happens to be his wife Laurie’s ex-fiance; her tall, good looking, ex-Marine ex-fiance. Even though he acknowledges having argued with the victim, he swears that he is not a killer, and though he would rather not, Andy has to admit he believes he´s telling the truth. For Andy, even with dozens of successful cases behind him, this case that his wife insists he take may prove to be his most difficult. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grover Gardner.

For the firm of Carpenter and Quincannon, Professional Detective Services, stopping extortionists is not only grand, but excitingly lucrative. When a pleasant afternoon´s bicycling through Golden Gate Park with a friend ends with the revelation of threatening letters, followed by a gunshot in a mansion garden, Sabina Carpenter knows this is a case that demands her immediate and undivided attention. The questions her partner John Quincannon has to unravel are not difficult: Wrixton, a wealthy banker, has met his extortionist´s first demand, but the order to pay another $5,000 is too much to face. The banker´s real problem is something he doesn´t want to reveal. That was fine with the detective, and when he was informed that some private letters were involved and Wrixton absolutely needed them back, there was nothing more Quincannon needed in the way of background. As with so many of San Francisco´s elite, the bedroom doors never seemed to stay shut. That was the easy part. Far more difficult was the matter of the dead courier, murdered most foully in a locked room within a locked room, creating a trail that will take John Quincannon through most of San Francisco´s less savory places and end with a riverboat trip that is anything but a relaxing cruise. The Dangerous Ladies Affair is the next thrilling installment in this charming historical mystery series from MWA Grand Masters Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini. 1. Language: English.

A debutante´s missing body, murder most foul, and weird spectrallights in the fog make for a thrilling gas light-era tale of mystery and detection. In 1895 San Francisco young debutantes don´t commit suicide at festive parties, particularly not under the eye of Sabina Carpenter. But Virginia St. Ives evidently did, leaping from a foggy parapet in a shimmer of ghostly light. The seemingly impossible disappearance of her body creates an even more serious problem for the firm of Carpenter and Quincannon, Professional Detective Services. Sabina didn´t want to take the case, but her partner John Quincannon insisted it would serve as entrée to the city´s ultra rich and powerful. That means money, and Quincannon loves the almighty dollar - which is why he is hunting the bandit who robbed the Wells Fargo office of $35,000. Working their separate cases - while Sabina holds Johnoff with one light hand - the detectives give readers a tour of the city the way it was. From the infamous Barbary Coast to the expensive tenderloin gaming houses and brothels frequented by wealthy men, Quincannon follows a danger-laden trail to unmask the murderous perpetrators of the robbery. Meanwhile, Sabina works her wiles on friends and relatives of the vanished debutante until the pieces of her puzzle start falling into place. But it´s an oddly disguised gent appearing out of nowhere who provides the final clue to both cases - the shrewd ´´crackbrain´´ who believes himself to be Sherlock Holmes. 1. Language: English.

Prefaces to the First Edition This guide is a must listening material for any black man or woman even thinking about a career in construction. This guide will also be extremely helpful for any carpenter or minority who wants to excel in the field of construction and has bigger aspirations than just digging trenches or cleaning up construction sites. The construction industry is dynamic and exciting and has plenty of opportunities to earn a good living. Unfortunately, the playing field is not always fair for people of color or minorities who would like to enter this field. I wish I could say that all you have to do is work as hard and as smart as the next man or woman and you will be given the same opportunities for advancement. That´s just not the case. I have been in the construction field for over 20 years. I am what you would call a first-generation carpenter. What that means is I had no family members in the field that helped me land a job or give me any advice. I learned everything about the trade from the school of hard Knocks. I´m writing this book so you can learn from my mistakes. I want you to learn what works and what doesn´t work. That way you will not be wasting valuable time and can focus on perfecting your skills as a journeyman carpenter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Skyler Morgan.
