The Twelve dogs of Christmas

By Rosenfelt, David

Publishing Date: 2016

Classification: M

Call Number: M

"Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter usually tries to avoid taking on new cases at all costs. But this time, he's happy--eager, even--to take the case that's just come his way. Andy's long-time friend Martha "Pups" Boyer takes in stray puppies that the local dog rescue center can't handle, raises them until they're old enough to adopt, and then finds good homes for them. Not everyone admires the work Pups does as much as Andy does, however. With Christmas just around the corner, one of Pups's neighbors has just reported Pups to the city for having more than the legal number of pets in her home under the local zoning laws. Andy happily takes Pups's case, and he feels confident in a positive outcome. Who could punish someone for rescuing puppies, after all, especially at Christmastime? But things get a lot more complicated when Randy Hennessey, the neighbor who registered the complaint against Pups, turns up dead. Pups had loudly and publicly threatened Hennessey after he filed his complaint, and Pups was also the one to find his body. All the evidence seems to point to Pups as the killer, and suddenly Andy has a murder case on his hands. He doesn't believe Pups could be guilty, but as he starts digging deeper into the truth behind Hennessey's murder, Andy may find himself facing a killer more dangerous than he ever imagined. "--

Nowhere Safe

By Bush, Nancy

Publishing Date: 2013

Classification: M

Call Number: M LARGE PRINT

The guilty will atone in blood. She senses their twisted desires before she meets them. It's as if fate is helping her stop these monsters from preying on others the way she was preyed upon. And after she has delivered brutal justice, she'll let the whole world see their guilt . . . The first victim, found naked, bound, and frozen to death, wore a note strung around his neck -- "I must pray for what I've done." Now there's another note -- this one attached to Detective September Rafferty's own stepbrother. Stefan survives, but September is sure he knows more than he's saying. Someone is eliminating suspected sexual predators. And the only thing more dangerous than a madman is a killer who's ruthlessly sane. Racing to predict the next target, September finds herself drawn into a harrowing and deeply personal case. For this time, there are no innocents -- only the one who kills, and those condemned to die.
