Summary

Hildegarde Withers is on the hunt again, as a vacation in California lands her a movie job and two dealers to clear up. Her own death brings Inspector Piper to the scene, and her resurrection cuts through Hollywood red tape as she becomes a target for the killer.

Great book - awful narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No, I do not recommend. Read the Kindle book as the story is great. The narrator voice was extremely ill chosen for this book. This character does not come alive and sounds like a joke. Also many mispronounced words. Very sad

What didn’t you like about Julie McKay’s performance?

I did not like anything about it. She obviously worked hard on this - but her voice is more suited to young romance or children's books.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes - so bad it could not listen to it and went back to the kindle book.
