When pretty, smart Sara Long is found bludgeoned to death, it's easy to blame the man with the bat. But Georgia Davis - former cop and newly-minted PI - is hired to look into the incident at the behest of the accused's sister, and what she finds hints at a much different, much darker answer. It seems the privileged, preppy schoolgirls on Chicago's North Shore have learned just how much their innocence is worth to hot-under-the-collar businessmen. But while these girls can pay for Prada price tags, they don't realize that their new business venture may end up costing them more than they can afford.

This is a great book; this is the first book in the Georgia Davis PI series written by Libby Fischer Hellmann and narrated by Beth Richmond. When pretty, smart Sara Long is found bludgeoned to death, it's easy to blame the man with the bat. But Georgia Davis - former cop and newly-minted PI - is hired to look into the incident at the behest of the accused's sister, and what she finds hints at a much different, much darker answer.
The narrator Beth Richmond did a great job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

The story is full of layers
Yes. I was very, very impressed, both the with the story itself, and with the quality narration performance. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. In fact, I almost always do immersive reading since I love to sometimes skip ahead of the narrator, so I had both versions of this book. It was awesome!!
Old family money, old family relationships, and old family power become intertwined in what Georgia suspects may be a massive coverup at all levels of legal, judicial, community leadership, and law enforcement in the town. As the investigation unfolds, it may be that this young man was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Georgia peals back each layer, going from murder, to teenage prostitution, to possible mob connections, and finally to illegal land development and government fraud. As the story unfolds, it becomes more and more obvious that Georgia is in very deep and even in fear of her life.
All of the characters were wonderfully developed, the story was exciting and kept my interest from beginning to end. The story was so excellently written and performed, I purchased additional stories in this series with the same performer.
Each moment when the next level of the story was uncovered and took you down the road until the next layer was exposed. Incredible complexity.
This is an extremely talented author and I have not been disappointed with any of her stories. The narration is superb.
