Publisher's Summary

Ever try finding a virtuous man in the Big Apple circa the 1930s? A fool's errand, right?
Well, Nick O'Brien is no fool. The war vet and former cop turned in his badge and then turned his back on the crooked criminal justice system. He's got a new mission: to be that good man in a bad city. With honesty and compassion, Nick hangs out the shingle of his own private detective agency to aid the victims of evil. He's out to crush corruption, case by case.
When a mysterious beauty with a missing brother seeks his services, Nick finds himself working a real onion of a mystery with each layer peeling away to reveal deeper levels of darkness, deception, and murder. No matter how deep he has to go, Nick will find out the truth and solve the enigma of The Woman in Blue.

A REMAKE OF ALL THE NOIR STORIES

If you could sum up The Woman in Blue in three words, what would they be?

Nothing original here


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Cut down on the lingo of the 30's. Yes, people used their own slang at that time, but not every 30's slang was required to be used in this story.


Have you listened to any of Rick Murphy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time I've listened to Rick Murphy's performance. He did a good job.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, the story was predictable from begining to end.
