It ‘Twas the Bite Before Christmas when all through the house, people were reading this book, even my spouse. It was this great legal thriller about mobsters, you see. My husband loves gang stories, and its court scenes for me.
It’s the twenty-eighth book in the Andy Carpenter series and one of the better entries. There are multiple mysteries to solve, several cold-blooded murders as well as a jury trial. Plus, a plethora of dogs, of course. During the trial, Andy explains why he asked certain questions and even gives insight into why he doesn’t ask other questions. It was an interesting look into an attorney’s brain. My husband loved all the mobster action and felt it rang true. He would know because he has watched all the famous mafia movies multiple times.
Overall, if you like your legal thrillers with some humor and an interesting setting of Jersey mob land, you will enjoy ‘Twas the Bite Before Christmas. 4 stars!
Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
