A Dangerous Fiction | [Barbara Rogan]

A Dangerous Fiction

With humor and a wicked wit, Barbara Rogan introduces readers to Jo Donovan, a literary agent turned detective. With the help of a former FBI profiler and an old flame, now an NYPD detective, Jo fights to save her agency and herself from the maniacal and murderous actions of a rejected writer. A terrific, fun read that is both a compelling mystery and an inside look into the world of publishing.

    Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.

    "2 in 1: Good mystery & Literary NYC scene"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Dangerous Fiction to be better than the print version?

    No clue as I am mostly blind and can no longer read books in print format.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dangerous Fiction?

    The launch party where the author arrives carried by four young men comes to mind. Also the slush pile meeting at the agency was brilliantly written. I can't really pick one scene as many stand out in my memory.


    Which character – as performed by Saskia Maarleveld – was your favorite?

    Jo, obviously. Tommy was probably second.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Humor and mystery set in literary Manhattan. However, this is an irrelevant question for a book review, is it not?


    Any additional comments?

    I would be most pleased to discover that Barbara Rogan will return with more mysteries involving the characters of this book. I so enjoyed the read. It is unusual to discover an American author who can write a cozy style mystery with wit and humor. Ms. Rogan accomplishes both.

    Story
    "The Story is decent but the reader..."

    Be sure to listen to the sample audio before buying this book. The reader of this book is the second worst I've ever listened to (the author of the Female Brain reading her own book being the worst). I was somewhat intrigued by the story but finally had to resort to buying the book for my Kindle because this reader is so distracting. I truly could have done a better job myself. I notice she has a number of books she has read so she must be inexpensive to hire.

    The story trundles along alright, albeit a bit melodramatically. The finale was somewhat predictable. If you get this book at a bargain price then the Audible version MIGHT be OK but I recommend buying the print or Kindle version to avoid the reader.
