Gabra Zackman is perfect for the narration to the Sophie Katz books. I choose my recording as much for the narrator as for the author. I have read all the Sophie books, and this is my least favorite. It's not bad, but it goes on and drags a little in the last quarter. Also, I thought there was a little gratuitous sex that wasn't really that interesting nor did it contribute much to the plot. The plot itself was good, but it took longer than necessary to develop ad solve. I'm not sorry I invested the time in it, but don't think I would recommend this very strongly. And not nearly as highly as the other Sophie books.
Loved it! Sophie with a new twist. Gabra Zackman is wonderful as always! Congrats Kyra on another fun read!
I like this series alot...Its fun and entertaining. I really like Deenas character- shes bold and Brash and we should all be more like her!! LOL!
I just can't trudge through this book I've tried 3X
It's just not the book for me.
I think she tried to be edgy and it came through as cheesy. No suspense at all.
Mail voices are wimpy, female voices sound like they have colds.
This was a waste of time. I should have dumped it but I stuck it out.

This is another great book in a fun series - don't try to read them out of order - it will just confuse you. But DO read them if you like funky, fun mysteries with great characters.
This is the first book of this series that I have read and it was so well done that I didn't realize it was the 5th book in the series. The past was mentioned, but you didn't need to have read the other books to understand everything and follow along or to totally fall in love with the series. The characters are quirky, entertaining, and well developed. The story kept you guessing and switching between potentially guilty parties. The narrator was nice to listen to and read at a good pace. When I finished this one, it made me want to reach for the next! Overall, it was a really pleasant and fast listen!
Not worth the $4.95 I spent on this audio. I am a "child" of the 60's and still did not find this interesting. Stopped listenig after 2 hrs into the story. Tries to be clever and thought provoking but misses the mark by far.
I probably would have enjoyed this book a little more than I did had it not been for the narrator. She ends just about every sentence as if she were asking a question. That alone totally turned me off.
