Summary

Now available in audio, the Anthony Award-winning short story that started it all. In Lucky Penny, award-winning author Linda Barnes introduces the red-headed, jazz-loving, cab-driving Bostonian and Private Investigator Carlotta Carlyle.

As Carlotta lounges in her cab one night while waiting for a fare, the part-time cabbie is accosted and robbed at gun point. When she is unable to get any assistance from the police, Carlotta sets out on her own to recover the stolen goods and bring the perp to justice.

Love Carlotta - wish there would be more ...

Love Linda Barnes crime series centering around independent red headed, tall, athletic, hack driving - crime solving Carlotta. I have read and reread all of the books in the series and wishing for more. This short story is a nice appetizer for great things to come.
