Publisher's Summary

A Crackling Good Mystery....
Crime reporter Nichelle Clarke's days can flip from macabre to comical with a beep of her police scanner. Then an ordinary accident story turns extraordinary when evidence goes missing, a prosecutor vanishes, and a sexy Mafia boss shows up with the headline tip of a lifetime. As Nichelle gets closer to the truth, her story gets more dangerous. Armed with a notebook, a hunch, and her favorite stilettos, Nichelle races to splash these shady dealings across the front page before this deadline becomes her last.

Nichelle pulls on her big girl shoes and steps up

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

I have already recommended this book to many of my mystery loving friends. To my mind it shows character growth and development to a much greater degree than most of the "cosy" genre. Nichelle knows what she wants, and goes out to get it, without a lot of demure second thoughts or bumbling coincidences, but plenty of sass.


Who was your favorite character and why?

The competition between Nichelle and her rivals, both print and broadcast, is too close to call. While we essentially are focused on her side of the story, the competition get plenty of time and makes Nichelle work for whatever bits of story that she gets first. I also have to mention I also have to put in a good word for Troy, a great little brother and a very loving son.


Which character – as performed by Reay Kaplan – was your favorite?

Rather than pick a favorite, I will say that Reay did an excellent job in making each of the major and supporting characters come alive in their own way. I think she did it in a way that the author, Lyndee Walker, would be overjoyed with. Nothing to take issue with here.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Come out of the morgue with all those dead icky things and let a nice pair of heels lead you into crime.


Any additional comments?

A wonderful way to spend a few hours when you need to be hands and eyes free.

I'm desperate for another!

Can't wait to continue on with this series. Excellent narrator and great read overall. I see there are four books out, yet Audible only has two available. Really hope to see the others become available soon - take my money!! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good murder mystery and a likable heroine!
