Summary

The second in this hilarious cozy mystery series features a woman who is a talent agent for showbiz animals and discovers that she has a talent herself: solving crimes. 

Kay Powell, theatrical agent to non-human animals, is babysitting - that is, birdsitting - her client, a parrot named Barney, on the set of his new TV show, Dead City. When the show’s charismatic star is shot in his trailer between scenes, the only eyewitness to the crime is - you guessed it - Barney. And even though Kay keeps explaining that even a “talking” parrot doesn’t actually converse with people, the investigators insist on interrogating the bird for information he clearly can’t communicate. 

Suspects accumulate like birdseed, and before long it’s clear the killer believes Barney might actually be able to supply useful evidence. Even Barney can’t fly away from this one.

Fun and Entertaining

This is another fun and entertaining book by EJ Copperman. The mystery is well written and the characters are fun and engaging. I look forward to the next book.

review

I wanted to like this book but just not my style. The reader really did not do mens' voices very well, and every other sentence had to have a "cute" comment. I got tired of it early on.

It's EEEEE deee. For Heaven's Sake!

As in Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gormé. Like Sonny and Cher, but from the 50s and 60s (and 70s).

The Agent to the Paws books are fun. All of Copperman's books are fun. Not too heavy, not too silly.

The narrator, Brittany Pressley does a really nice job. Her voice is clear and flexible and she connects with the words she's saying.
But she doesn't do her homework. Nor does her proofer do homework. This is very disappointing since it's exactly the same mistake that was made by a previous narrator in the first book of the series. The author is paying homage so why not honor that?

Come on, it's part of the job.
