Publisher's Summary

Joe Odin is the world's greatest guesser, a carnival legend who can tell you your weight, your profession, or your favorite brand of whiskey with nothing but a glance and a grubby dollar. He uses his flamboyant style of deduction to peer into small-town secrets and unravel his favorite puzzles of all - murders.
Primrose Whistler is just 17 years old, a trailer-park firecracker with green hair and a talent for trouble. After she witnesses a brutal attack and is almost killed at the county fair, she and Odin forge an unlikely partnership of razor-sharp wits and masterful deduction to stop a killer before he silences Prim for good.


What the Critics Say

"Narrator Colby Elliott deftly captures each unique, often endearing, character in this mystery...Elliott is particularly entertaining in his creation of Odin, a trickster character...his rendering of Prim and her young circle is also fascinating and realistic. Heavy accents - Jamaican, Southern, and rural - add to the atmosphere of this puzzler." (AudioFile)

Awesome! Not your run of the mill Mystery

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, great storytelling in combination with excellent narration. A fabulous listening experience. I look forward to more Prim and Odin adventures. I'm hoping Mr. Lininger keeps Mr. Elliott as the narrator or I'll probably have an extreme ugly reaction.

What did you like best about this story?

The cast of characters are rich. Mr. Elliott's narration brings them to life. This is not your run of the mill mystery. A wonderful surprise as we run alongside Miss Primrose Whistler and her friends, relatives and new community.

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

No. This is my first experience with Mr. Elliott's talent. He is definitely on my favs list.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Plenty of snickering, plenty of heart racing moments as well. Bravo

Prim comes to Hygiene Colorado to visit her Aunt Vern,. So begins mystery and murder for her and the worlds best guesser, Odin to solve. There are enough twists and turns to keep the listener guessing. I hope there will be more Prim and Odin adventures in the future.

The narration was well done. The characters were excellently portrayed.
