Like a Pilot Episode to a TV Show

Since I am a fan of Gwendolyn Druyor’s narration, I wanted to give one of her own books a try. Since she is a great narrator, I figured that the performance alone would be worth it.

We get a super fast story that reunites Kissy with her friend’s brother, Tim. He takes her out on a job with him, since he is a KC—Killer with a Conscience. Along the way, we meet police officer Avi, who sings bass and hits it off with musical firecracker Kissy.

This is a short work. I knew that going into it, but I still wanted more. I would say the best way to think of this is a pilot episode to a TV series. It puts all the characters in place and gives us glimpses to what might come up in the future, such as a love triangle between Kissy, Tim and Avi. There are several more stories after this, so you can listen to the further adventures of Kissy, Tim and Avi just to be sure.

Druyor’s narration is as good as I expected it to be. There were some clever parts to this story that I rather liked. For example, near the end we meet a dominatrix who had a very unique way of capturing her intended target. I liked it so much I had to tell several people I knew who appreciate a good whodunnit. The name Avi may or may not be a reference to the wonderful bass singer Avi Kaplan from the group Pentatonix, but he was the Avi who immediately came to my mind.

I recommend this to those who only have time for quick reads/listens and who like a fast-paced mystery. There isn’t a lot of explicit sex or violence, but due to length there just isn’t time for it. If you like this one, there are several other stories to go with it.
