...and worth downloading if you like the genre, but I do want to address the common complaint of Marguerite Gavin's pronunciation. Yes, she does flub words; not often, but when she does it is apparent and usually near each other (30 minutes into this book you have "errrrr on the side of caution" (instead of it sounding like "air") and "rye-bald" for "ribald" (I want a pastrami on ryebald, please)).
Everybody mispronounces words at some time, but don't blame the narrator. To err is human (or preternatural), but to not catch it is the producer/editor's fault--that's what "takes" are for.
But don't let this detour you from looking into any of these books; Gavin has a good voice that fits the character, and you can even use her flubs as character traits of a 20-something witch detective that lacks linguistic talent to help you get through it all.
"One Word Answer" can be enjoyed on its own, but devotees of the series will find the story especially enjoyable, as it helps bridge the gap between Dead as a Doornail (Book 5) and Definitely Dead (Book 6)."
But what it should say is that it is also found in the collection of short stories "A Touch of Dead"....
If you have the collection, you don't need this...if you don't have the collection (and I am assuming you are a fan of the series) then go get the collection instead of this. Otherwise, Johanna Parker is great as always and the stories are always fun.
