Publisher's Summary

When the mayor keels overdead in the middle of a speech, a clandestine student society immediately takes credit for his demise. Their mission is to create a perfect political system by any means at their disposal. Clare Vengel, a rookie officer fresh from the police academy and beyond bored with her routine as a beat cop, volunteers to go undercover as a student to infiltrate the secretive organization.
A streetwise amateur mechanic, Clare takes a dim view of book smarts—she is of the opinion that higher education is for people who can't handle the real world. In short order, she alienates a popular professor and begins to lose the respect of her police superiors. Soon, another politician is killed, and Clare steps up her clandestine involvement with the suspect students. When two more politicians die, the race begins to apprehend the culprits before her own duplicity can be revealed.

Critic Reviews

"[A] fast-paced, readable debut.... Spano has created an enjoyable read, which bodes well for future entries." (Quill & Quire)
"Narrator Erin Moon does an admirable job with an assortment of characters, alternating competently between men and women, students, and others...Moon deserves credit for keeping listeners engaged as the mystery is unraveled." (Audiofile)

Chic Mystery 1st in series worthwhile

Fresh Author is Fresh Air. The second of the series is better than the first and as far as Chic Mysteries go it is great compared to most of what else is out there. Great narrator, very good author, never boring and worth two listens each .... especially the second in series.

And if you like Robin Spano and two is not enough you might like Kyra Davis is my guess and vis-a-vis (I do). Fun, spunky, intelligent lead female mystery protagonists in both these authors.
