Publisher's Summary

Tough and tenacious, Riley Drake is a first-class private eye who runs background checks for a dating service on the side. She has zero interest in helping billionaire John Stratton clear his name so the man can resume dating again. The handsome widower would be quite the catch - if it weren't for the fact that he probably murdered his wife.
Stratton's woes are only part of Riley's problems. Other clients - a TV celebrity with sexual-perception issues, a Trump-like entrepreneur with an embarrassing fetish, and a worshipful drug-addict trying to go straight - keep her running through the streets of Chicago, ready to take down anyone who gets in her way.
Riley is determined to uncover all their secrets, even though she knows that playing with matches means you sometimes get burned.

Why This Narrator

I enjoy Julie Hyzy's writing quite a bit and when I saw she had a new book out I bought it without checking who the narrator was, unfortunately. I don't know why or how this narrator gets as much work as she does. Her voices (the secondary female characters are all performed in a super high-pitched nasally voice) and every dang sentence is overperformed to the point where it's exhausting to listen to. It's like nails on a chalkboard. I feel the same way about Coleen Marlo too, but, evidently, I'm in the minority since they keep getting paid to ruin the books I'm interested in buying. Just want to warn anyone who might be considering buying this audiobook: this narrator isn't for everyone. Julie Hyzy is an awesome writer though, so if you haven't read her White House Chef series, then I recommend you read that instead!
