Publisher's Summary

When San Francisco Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield arrives at the scene of a deadly shooting, she's shocked to find that the witnesses have caught the killer, and that he's someone she knows. Rebecca's a by-the-book detective, and she's always done her job according to the rules, without hesitation, until Richie Amalfi comes back into her life.
Richie knows his way around everything and everyone in his city. When people say they "know a guy who knows a guy," Richie's the guy they're talking about. He can usually help people out of tight situations, but suddenly finds he can't get himself out of hot water when he's accused of murder.
Richie's on the run, and he runs straight to Rebecca to help him prove his innocence. From the nightclubs of North Beach to the scenic heights of Twin Peaks, dangers lurk and more deaths happen. As Rebecca discovers there's a lot more to Richie than she thought, and a lot more to like than she imagined, she soon fears not only for her life, but also her heart.

Good story with rushed narration

Use to drive me crazy when you get the long pauses between the end of one chapter and the start of another. This narration had the opposite issue- barely a breathe between 2 scenes and you do a mental hiccup before you realize that the story has moved on. Otherwise - enjoyable.

"I didn't know it was safe to stand up."

Any additional comments?

Rebecca Mayfield is one of those sticklers for the rules, by the book type cop - until a charming murder suspect turns up on her doorstep, declaring his innocence and asking for her help. Does she turn him in? No, she invites him in (to her house), falls asleep - and wakes up handcuffed to him. So, police procedural it is not. Good fun, most definitely. Lots of banter between Inspector Mayfield and her cheeky suspect, Ritchie. A host of colourful characters and a decent mystery.
Kristi Burns' narration was a pleasure to hear, well paced and with perfect intonation.She became the voice of headstrong, but slightly confused, Rebecca Mayfield and, although not able to give a believable male resonance, still carried the illusion during conversation.

This is a good listen, easy on the ear, lighthearted in approach, all wrapped up in a decent murder mystery. If you are looking for gritty reality, this is not the book for you. But for well written amusing situations, Italian food and a little gentle flirtation, this is great.
My thanks to the right's holder for the gift this book, via Audiobook Boom. It was very enjoyable, a good start to a new series
