Publisher's Summary

Isabel Spellman may have a checkered past littered with romantic mistakes, excessive drinking, and creative vandalism - but she's good at her job as a licensed P.I. with her family's firm, Spellman Investigations. Invading people's privacy comes naturally to Izzy and all the Spellmans. If only they could leave their work at the office. Izzy walks an indistinguishable line between Spellman family member and Spellman employee. But when Izzy decides to get out of the family business in search of normalcy, she ends up taking on the most important case of her life. The Spellman Files is an unforgettable introduction to the Spellman family in all its lovable chaos.

Critic Reviews

"Fast-paced, irreverent, and very funny, The Spellman Files is like Harriet the Spy for grown-ups." (Curtis Sittenfeld, author of The Man of My Dreams and Prep)
"Hilarious. My enjoyment of The Spellman Files was only slightly undercut by my irritation that I hadn't written it myself. The funniest book I've read in years!" (Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada and Everyone Worth Knowing)
" The Spellman Files is hilarious, outrageous, and hip. Izzy Spellman, P.I., is a total original, with a voice so fresh and real, you want more, more, more. At long last, we know what Nancy Drew would have been like had she come from a family of lovable crackpots. Lisa Lutz has created a delicious comedy with skill and truth. I loved it." (Adriana Trigiani, author of Lucia, Lucia and Big Stone Gap)

The Spellman Files (Unabridged)

I love this book and this version of the audiobook (unabridged narrated by Christina Moore) is THE version to get. The other narrator isn't bad but Moore captures the snark amazingly well. I had first heard this from my local library and was frustrated that I was unable to purchase it until now. I had purchased book 3 in the series and just couldn't get into the narration so was thrilled to find book 4 narrated by Moore. I have already listened to this version twice since purchasing (and if I hadn't had a credit available I would have purchased it outright my need for this version is that great).

The book itself is a wonderful storyline reminding me of a Stephanie Plum distant relative. The book treads into the mystery genre while wallowing in the comedy and dips a toe into the romance arena. I hear its being made into a tv series and I cannot wait!

Addams family gone PI

For the first hour and a half getting to know the Spellmans was fun, but at the three hour mark I had to speed things up. At the very end it dawns that without the painful lists, meticulous character descriptions, and seemingly random anecdotes, it wouldn't be so touching. The best way to describe this wacky bunch is if you took the spook out of the Addams Family and gave them all PI badges.

PS - The narration is not bad, but in no way matches the main character.
