Talented voice actor Christopher Kipiniak reads the voice of narrator Stanley Hastings with the perfect blend of self-effacing, droll humor. In Caper: A Stanley Hastings Mystery, the 12th in a series by Parnell Hall, listeners again get to enjoy Hastings' antics. Thrown for a loop when a beautiful woman hires him, Hastings, the Woody Allen of private investigating, stumbles into an adventure based on his own insecurities and flaws. This neurotic PI is at it again with the same humanity and humor as ever.
The latest in the beloved Stanley Hastings series - the unlikeliest private eye in New York City, who doesn’t even carry a gun.
Poor Stanley Hastings. After getting hired by a hit man and nearly getting shot, the put-upon PI needed some fun, so when a gorgeous damsel in distress walked through his office door she seemed just what the doctor ordered.
The fair maiden turned out to be a married mom who wanted Stanley to find out why her teenage daughter was skipping school. Playing truant officer wasn't exactly Stanley's idea of fun, but at least it should be easy.
Stanley being Stanley, nothing goes right, nothing is as it seems, bodies start to pile up, and faster than you can say 'fall guy', guess who's left holding the bag?
Before the case is resolved, Stanley will be nostalgic for the good old days, when all he had to worry about was a hitman.
