Publisher's Summary

Sofie's getting her feet under her as a PI and business is booming. So much so that she's hired her layabout cousin and a one-time petty criminal as "boys of all work". Okay, so her reputation's become, well, complicated - everyone in Astoria, Queens, knows that from time to time she shoots one of her own clients - but on the whole, she's getting a lot more respect than when she was best known for leaving her groom at the altar.In fact, Sofie's just landed her first big criminal case - one so big that it's on the news nearly every night. A young man from the wrong side of the tracks has been accused of murdering his beautiful, wealthy girlfriend. His alibi's a mess and his attitude's worse. But his sister believes he's innocent, and soon, so does Sofie. Now she just has to prove it - or find the real killer.If only she didn't have a host of distractions: a body disappears from her aunt Sotiria's funeral home, Sofie sees her Dino keeping company with her sister Efi, and Jake Porter returns, somehow connected to the missing body and, as always, making Sofie go weak in the knees. And since Dino's otherwise occupied...Meanwhile, young Johnny is facing a life sentence. And Sofie Metropolis, budding PI, is his only hope.

Sofie done wrong....

I love the Sofie Metropolis series, I really do, but this one was just kind of "eh". I think the narrator used on the previous books did such a great job (especially with the accents) but this one was not very good. Everytime she tried to read Rosie, I cringed -- instead of getting the plucky Puerto Rican's personality, we got something like a Russian/Oriental-esque accent. Don't even get me started on Jake. UGH. Please bring back the original narrator and continue to write these fun books. They are very entertaining, and I want to "see" what happens to Sofie, sans Allyson Ryan.

how much longer is this thing?

I have enjoyed the beginnings of the Sofie Metropolis series but will have to agree with the other reviewer that this book is NOT very good and it is certainly NOT enhanced by the lifeless rendition of the characters by the narrator. Unfortunately, in a talking book, everything rests on the narrator's shoulders...the ability to make a so-so book better not the least of it! The narrator did not step up to the plate on this one...nor did the writers.
