Publisher's Summary

Nothing - not even murder - keeps Pauline Sokol off the case. Pauline Sokol, ex-RN turned medical insurance fraud investigator, finds herself embroiled in a scam at a weight loss clinic in the scenic New Mexico desert. As if being undercover isn't bad enough, she's not allowed to eat chocolate, she lives in a body suit that weighs a ton, and her roommate turns out to be a mysteriously hot guy! Nearly finished with what seems to be an open-and-shut case, Pauline befriends a woman who is an undercover reporter, also interested in the goings-on at the weight loss clinic. Pauline is grateful for the help - until that help turns up dead. Pauline knows the clock is ticking - and it's not just counting down how long until she can get a candy bar. Back to square one and the probable need to turn to her handsome, but incorrigible, co-worker, Jagger. Pauline must rely on her nursing skills as well as her ever-increasing skills as an investigator - despite her wish not to be one.

Awkward and plotless

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I enjoy Amy Rubinate's work, which is why I tried this. However, the story was just terrible and made virtually NO sense. There wasn't even any real mystery to follow or clues to uncover and the narrative jumped from scene to scene without any connection.

Has Dead Weight turned you off from other books in this genre?


What aspect of Amy Rubinate’s performance would you have changed?

I like her performance. I wish she had better material to work with here.

What character would you cut from Dead Weight?

ALL of them -- it's a waste of time.

Any additional comments?

I won't try this author again.
