Publisher's Summary

Sleuth Regan Reilly and her husband, Jack, return to New York from their honeymoon in Ireland and discover that their next-door neighbor has put up his apartment for sale. They decide to buy it and enlarge the loft Jack lived in as a bachelor. Regan takes time off from her work as a private investigator to supervise the construction, while Jack resumes his job as head of the Manhattan Major Case Squad.
On a sweltering summer night, a major blackout hits New York City, and more than one person in the Reilly's building blows their fuse! In the midst of the chaos, with Jack out coping with the city's problems, Regan finds herself drawn into a case she would never expect to happen in her own home.
Zapped, set in New York City, blends Clark's sophisticated humor with her remarkable gift for portraying characters in different walks of life. Here, she creates a penetrating, humorous profile of bosses and workers in the New York real-estate and construction business, and the ardors of renovating a home, which we all know can drive one crazy.

OH Dear, She Needs Help

The book is a fun "read" and was an enjoyable interlude but someone needs to tell this author she cannot read! Perhaps she is trying to save money by recording her own books but she just makes a mess of them. I had purchased one of her books prior to this and decided to try once more in hopes she had improved. No such luck. Not only is her voice not that pleasing but her inflection and emphasis is awful. Everything is always at an excited, breath taking pitch even when she is writing in the third person.

I have purchased my last audio book recorded by Ms Clark until she has someone else read them. Too bad, it was a fun book but I couldn't wait for it to be over.

Zapped

While I enjoyed the story very much, I was very disappointed in the reader. The author should stick to writing and leave the reading to those who do it best. I had difficulty following which character was doing the talking due to Ms. Higgins Clark's inability to change her voice to distinguish between characters. I would rate the story as a four and the reader as a two.
