Summary

Nineteen-year-old amateur sleuth Kim is bogged down trying to resolve issues for other people while also trying to make a little money for herself. But she receives a strange, unexpected message that appears to be a plea for help, but from whom and from where is not at all clear.

 Nothing more than that is required to engage Kim’s dynamic determination to relentlessly investigate until she has got to the bottom of the matter, has helped whoever it was asked for help, and has brought to justice whoever instigated the need for help. 

There are moments of mirth along the way and some opportunities for the odd romantic interlude, too.

exciting and kept me interested

I started and listened to it so quickly because it was exciting and kept me interested. I thought it was good but the name was a little deceptive.

Love these audios. Keeps you wanting more.

I love the way the story is told. I had a hard time putting the audio down and kept wanting to see what happened next. I have listened to 4 audiobooks in this series and ordered the next audiobook. I can't wait for the next audiobook in this series to come in. Love, love, love listening to these.

Another relaxing read

Love the narration of these books, so easy to listen to. Plots twist and turn and it’s hard to switch off - not sure I’m looking forward to the next book as it is the last in the series. I don’t want it to end, but I’ll probably just start again at the beginning 😍 will look for other books narrated by Claire Nicholls.

A thrilling ride!!

I listen to many audiobooks, often two or three a week. This is one of the best I've listened to. I got to the 75% done point by bedtime last night, and I could not put it down. I had to stay up and finish it. You literally suspect everyone during this audiobook.

What a story!

This author is beyond amazing. He has the gift and ability to bring his listener into such thrilling situations. His research, compelling storyline and character development have you enthralled from the very first line.
This is not the first audiobook I have listened to him and won't be the last.

a twist of mystery thrown in

Lessons in kindness, generosity, and empathy with a twist of mystery thrown in! Claire Nicholls did a good job narrating. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Brilliant

Could not put down the listing through the night. Keeps you guessing throughout. I would highly recommend to listeners who enjoy detective audiobooks with a twist. After listing one you just ordered the next audiobook in the series automatically

Truly fascinating

Enjoyed the entire thing. You have villains, victims, heroes, and sometimes a bizarre mix of all 3 in the same characters. Truly fascinating. Carry on

Kim vs the Carabinieri !

Italy, LGBT, law-enforcement, romance, suspense

Kim is nineteen, has several interesting jobs, lives a sort of double life, is engaged to two different people, often has to help others find a job, is a Brit living in Italy despite having no Italian. She is also well known as a detective consultant to the Carabinieri, but when they don't listen to her she finds her own way to solve the crime! Another fun story!
Claire Nicholls continues to be excellent as narrator!
