Publisher's Summary

Family feuds, booze, and bad company. Teenager Rebecca Slater's walk on the wild side has taken a downward spiral. And now she's disappeared.
But her family don't seem to have noticed.
Wealthy, private, dysfunctional, the Slaters deny that their daughter is missing - even as they block all attempts by Rebecca's friends to contact her.
So, the friends contact a private investigator.
Eddie Flynn is good at finding people. And he's good at spotting lies. It doesn't take him long to see through the Slaters' denials. So he digs around, and isn't too surprised when some unpleasant people come scuttling out of the cracks in their perfect world.
But for these people the teenager's disappearance is part of a plan. One that's too important to be threatened by an investigator with more persistence than sense. So it's time for the investigator to disappear.

Very enjoyable!

Excellent! I laughed out loud so many times. S. B. DeVay's narration is really witty - just perfect. Looking forward to listening to the next one.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" A brilliant contemporary tale, told in a fondly-missed style, reminiscent of Mickey Spillane et al; with events, characters and locations brought bang up-to-date for today's audience.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character is (rather obviously) P.I. Eddie Flynn; but I enjoyed Lucy and want to know much more - although I doubt we will - about Shaughnessy.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

It's impossible to pick a favourite scene, although meeting our client for the first time, right at the outset, was great fun.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

As a full-length unabridged novel, it's not viable to take in one sitting (for many listeners that is, some die-hards could I expect). That said, once started I had to do some every day.

Any additional comments?

An excellent example of the genre, beautifully executed, with a brilliantly matched narrator. Highly recommended.
