Publisher's Summary

Kathleen Turner has goals. She moved to Indianapolis to start seeing to them, but things aren’t going quite as well as she’d hoped. She’s a runner for a high-powered law firm in town, not the most prestigious of positions, but it and her part-time bartender gig at least pays the bills. And one of the senior partners is a dreamboat in that obscenely rich, disturbingly good looking, slightly snobbish sort of way.
It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from her neighbor Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood.
Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend. It’s the opening gambit in a web of murder, deceit, conspiracy, and fraud that stretches to the law firm for which Kathleen works. Maybe to the very office that Blane Kirk commands.
And Kathleen Turner, law office runner, can trust no one if she wants to survive.

I wish Kathleen was a bit tougher

These books have promise, but I don't know if I'm 100% sold. The mystery was interesting enough, but I just wasn't sold on our heroine, Kathleen Turner. I know she's supposed to be young, but how anyone can be that naive, I have no idea. She blindly trusted everyone from the many men trying to get into her pants to her random neighborhood. And she was so hell bent on getting justice for her murder neighbor. I know she's your friend and all, but seriously, you are going to risk your life to find out who killed her? That type of loyalty is usually reserved for someone you know more than a couple of months and had a few cups of coffee with. She just made so many dumb mistakes and most of what she accomplished was from blind luck as opposed to any real intelligence or skill. And she was constantly being saved by someone else. I mean, constantly. I like my heroes (men or women) to be a little more self-sufficient. I had high hopes for this cop's daughter, but overall, she disappointed me, and after a while, the book started to feel a little long with her repeated antics.

I think I'll read one more book in the series to see if things improve, because they do have potential. But if the next one is anything like the first, then I think it'll be the last.

Audiobook review: The narrator's voice was semi-robotic. It was weird because her reading of the dialogue was pretty decent. With the exception of the men's voices, I thought she did a pretty good job. But reading everything else, oh my...

Cannot stand this narrator! Had to stop listening

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

Using a different narrator.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting was the mystery and the least interesting was the love triangle.

How could the performance have been better?

The biggest issue I had was that, when she did the male voices, they were so low I couldn't hear them so I increased volume, but then it was too loud when she did Kathleene's voice. Male voices were terrible. Strange inflection and monotone overall. She would emphasize the wrong words in sentences. Also nasally. Yuck!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Would have been SO much better with a different narrator.

Fun romantic escapism....

I would pigeon hole this as a romantic thriller, I have to come write out and say it, I enjoyed it, I didn't care about the ludicrous coincidences, it's written well with fun and flair, with entertaining narration by Angela Dawe.
Life has not been too great for Kat, she's had to give up a lot in the past now it's time to get her life on track, even if that means being on the bottom of the corporate ladder. Kat works two jobs, a runner in a prestigious law firm, her boss being the witch from hell and a bar maid in the evening in a busy pub, where skimpy costumes seem obligatory.
Throw in two alpha males, a murdered prostitute, electoral fraud and some very powerful enemies it becomes apparent that no-one is really telling her the truth.
Stupidly naive she has a steep learning curve, but she's like a dog with a bone and no matter the cost will get to the bottom of her friends murder.
Worth the credit to escape for a few hours.
