In fact, the atmosphere is so consistently loony that the office mail cart makes several passes through the reception room, with the office practical joker lying on top of it pretending to be dead, before Meg realizes that he's become the victim of someone who wasn't joking at all. He's been murdered for real.
Donna Andrews's debut book, Murder with Peacocks, won the St. Martin's Malice Domestic best first novel contest and reaped a harvest of other honors as well. This is the fourth book in the Meg Langslow series, which features the intrepid Meg and her cast of oddball relatives. Their capers are a lighthearted joy to read.
"This may be the funniest installment of Andrews' wonderfully wacky series yet." (Romantic Times)

Maybe it's because I worked at a computer company but a lot of these characters and details of the environment struck home for me, not to mention the D&D memories from when I was a kid. I really enjoyed this book and the reader. She did a super job. This book has permanent spot on my ipod for when I need a little lift. I wish Audible had more of this series.

Fun, light-hearted mystery
With each book, Donna Andrews gets better. Her quirky cast always create far more problems than the murder of some unpleasant character does, making for a nice light-hearted listen.
I was not delighted with the narrator, who made too many of the men sound like surfer types, but she did a great job on Meg's voice and the general narration. Overall, the narration was okay, just not as good as some I have heard.
