Everyone knows Arno Heywood. He's been a Minneapolis TV personality for years. So when he jumps to his death from a downtown high-rise, it's a shocker--especially since he dies wearing women's clothes, a suicide in drag.
In chic Linden Lofts, where Arno lived, the other tenants are spooked, and smart investigator Jane Lawless soon finds out why. They, like Arno, have secrets to conceal, and the shadowy someone with a full set of keys who's scouting out their apartments may soon make that impossible. Can one of Linden Loft's upscale professionals really be an aspiring blackmailer? Before Jane and her pal Cordelia can make sure, a brutal murder ups the ante.

- Mr Peter Geran
Would you try another book written by Ellen Hart or narrated by Aimee Jolson?
Yes but one would hope it would be more plot led than character led.
What does Aimee Jolson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
She has a laid back style of narration which goes well with the characterisation
Do you think Faint Praise needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I believe there are plenty out there
Any additional comments?
I felt at times that the plot got lost amongst the authors love for her characters. Perhaps a bit less me, me, me and a bit more concentrating on the story would make it a better whodunit.
