    Thanks to an elderly spinster sleuth and her ingenious cat, Christopher Holmes has enjoyed a celebrated career as a bestselling mystery writer. Until now. Sales are down and his new editor is allergic to geriatric gumshoes. On the advice of his agent, he reinvents his fortyish, frumpy, recently dumped self into the sleek, sexy image of a literary lion, and heads for a Northern California writers conference to try and resurrect his career.

    Story

    I have a confession to make — I've fell blindly and unconditionally in love with the main character of this book. Kit Holmes is struggling with mid-life crisis big time: his long-term relationship has just ended, his career is going downhill, he is concerned about his health, he feels old and he complains a lot about all and everything. What is there not to like about this man?! I enjoy the way he sees the world and himself through the sarcastic lenses and I absolutely love the unbeatable, witty logic of his!

    Not many audio books have made me laugh out loud, but this one did — several times. Besides the excellent writing the best thing about this book is no doubt the fact that the author's joy of writing Somebody Killed His Editor comes across so loud and clear.

    I also enjoyed the old-fashioned, Agatha Christie kind of mystery setting in this story. It all worked out extremely well — I never figured the mystery out by myself.

    The narrator adds a nice touch to the story and at the same time makes some of the scenes even more hilarious. With a great narrator like Kevin R. Free this is definitely a book I can recommend wholeheartedly.
