Publisher's Summary

When a mystery writer cries bloody murder, everyone blames her overactive imagination. Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be; maybe it's from a lifetime of fielding dumb comments about her half-black, half-Jewish ethnicity. ("My sister's married to a Polynesian! I just love your culture!") So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave. When a filmmaker friend is brutally murdered in the manner of a death scene in one of his movies, Sophie becomes convinced that a copycat killer is on the loose...and that she's the next target. If she doesn't solve the mystery, her own best seller will spell out her doom. Cursing her grisly ending (why, oh, why did she have to pick the axe?), Sophie engages in some real-life gumshoe tactics. The man who swoops in to save her in dark alleys at night is mysterious new love interest Anatoly Darinsky. Of course, if this were fiction, Anatoly would be her prime suspect.

I'm not sure what I was looking at on Audible to find this book & author, but was it ever my lucky day!! This book is so fun and the narrator is terrific, too. I download my books on CDs and listen to them in the car. I sat in the car in my garage (not running of course, did not want to become one of Kyra's next characters) listening to the final disc and couldn't wait to rush up here and write a review.

Rest assured, I will put all of her books in my wish list.

I truly think her books are right up there with the Women's Murder Club novels by James Patterson and I adore him.

Thanks, Audible, for another great female author who writes exceptionally fun and entertaining books.

Great for Weekend Chores

This is definitely a light read...enjoyable to listen to while doing something else. The narrator can be a little annoying with the accents, but the story kept me listening. I've already downloaded the next story in the series.
