Publisher's Summary

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht and she's not afraid to use it!
After several months of cruising Mexico's hauntingly beautiful Sea of Cortez, Hetta's in Puerto Escondido, a place once described by author John Steinbeck as "a magic harbor". Anchored out, swaying on the hook at the whim of breeze and tide, surrounded by magnificent views and turquoise water can be magical. Stuck at anchor alone? Not so much.
So when her best friend, Jan, gets them an invite to a party at a nearby luxury resort hosted by a Japanese businessman - all expenses paid - Hetta figures, why not? Why turn down an evening of free food and booze? And besides, what could possibly go wrong?
With Hetta involved? Plenty.
Not only are she and Jan soon up to their necks in hot sake, a succession of unsavory intruders sends Hetta scurrying for a safe harbor, but not before she reaches the conclusion that some folks just need killin'.

Equal editions. With the audio, someone else tells you what is happening. When I read it myself, it plays out in my head!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Just Needs Killin'?

Anything with Po Thang.

Which character – as performed by Stevie Puckett – was your favorite?

I think Jan as I always figured Hetta's voice was deeper than that.

What three words best describe Stevie Puckett’s voice?


Who was the most memorable character of Just Needs Killin' and why?

Definitely Hetta. The other characters are always peripheral to her. without Hetta there would be no story.

Any additional comments?

Stevie Puckett's voicing of Jan is too shrill and hard to listen to. Otherwise she does a good performance of the book.
