Chrisman Library News

If you have ever asked either of us librarians for the name of a good author, one of the first names mentioned is David Rosenfelt. There are many good authors, but Rosenfelt stands out.
He has a great series about a reluctant lawyer named Andy Carpenter who is semi-retired and accepts only cases that he considers interesting. Very interesting. The stories are well written with both wit and humor.
Rosenfelt has shown himself to be a deep thinker from time to time. In his latest book, Dog Eat Dog, Andy is musing about what verdict the jury will come back with.
Quote, “People develop a worldview, and when new facts come in, they adapt them to that view. If they can’t do so, if they can’t fit the new fact into their existing belief, then they just reject it out of hand.”
We have the entire series on our shelves, including Dog Eat Dog and enthusiastically recommend them to you.
