Laurie attracted the lawyer’s attention right from day one and that’s why Andy is quite attached to her in so many ways that he cannot explain. Andy never planned on falling in love but he cannot control the romantic feelings which just ooze out of his heart after seeing Laurie. Another murder case hits the down when a cop is killed and then his body is burnt.
The dead body is found in the form of ashes and this triggers the police so much that it starts arresting the suspects right away.

With Laurie’s name in the list of the suspects, things get more serious for Andy Carpenter who just cannot think of losing the love of his life.
David Rosenfelt has made the story not only personal for Andy Carpenter but it is also the matter of life and death for him. If he loses there would be nothing left for him to fight for further in life. Best in Snow and Open and Shut is also pure classics that the author has written before this one.
