OMG Simply amazing. FOOLED ME

If you like your mysteries with a sense of humor, a lack of violence and insight into the human condition that you can actually put to use – well, you can’t do better. The setting for the book is the Mystery Writers of America annual conference so you have a lot of mystery buffs in attendance and everyone plays a mystery game. I once went to a mystery party and we all had to dress up and act like our character. Same here, except people are acting like Sherlock Holmes, Kinsey Millhorn, Inspector Clouseau and others. There is a mystery within a mystery as people try to solve the game while attendance keeps dropping. The narrator has fun with the various accents and my only wish is we get to meet some of these characters again. Enjoy!

Exceptional Audio Treat

I read this book not long ago and really liked it and then a friend told me I had to listen to the audio. I wasn’t keen on it, but thought I would check it out. Wow. Wait till you hear the narrator do Inspector Clouseau, you will crack up. There are mysteries within mysteries here and hearing the different voices makes it all so much richer. The characters here play a game where they dress up and act like famous detectives, thus the appearance of Clouseau, Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple and a bunch of other famous detectives that make the listening so fun. Great book. Even better audio.

Enjoyable!

I like the style of this author and the narrator was enjoyable to listen to. The Vegas setting pulled me in and the setting descriptions were on point. Excellent read!
