Florida's Tango Key has never been so hot. Especially now with multimillionaire and amateur archaeologist Doug Cooper turning up headless behind his beach house. It seems a number of people stand to gain from his demise, including a stunning young widow, an adulterous son, and two gold diggers from Cooper's South American exploits.
Detective Aline Scott knows a scandal like this could turn the wealthy island paradise into a no-man's land. But when she starts to sift through the facts, she unearths a startling new mystery...one that leads to a missing and priceless archaeological treasure - and the unsolved murder of Aline's closest friend three years before.

To read yes, but not as an audio book.
By replacing the narrator. She sounded as if she was reading the book for the first time to a group of pre-school children. She had no distinguishable character voices and would often run together sentences of different speakers in a dialog. I believe most anyone could have done this performance better.
In the first hour 85% of it is about the emotional issues of a narcissistic thoughts of a woman worried about her love life. Seriously, this is a supposed to be a female cop, so insecure and and more time is spent on her "needs" from a fellow cop in her love life than anything to do with the crime. The author does have a good phrase of turn and description but that's the best thing I can say about it. I suspect if you like romances you might find it interesting but even putting it on 2x I simply couldn't finish it. The best thing about it is that the narrator (at normal speed) has good inflection and reading skills. Pity she didn't have anything worth listen to read.
