Publisher's Summary

They found Angela Hartwell lying in the shallow waters beside the golf course. There was not a mark on her, yet she was dead, strangled. How could that be?

Once again, it's up to Harry Starke to find out. The investigation takes him into a world he's very familiar with, a world of affluence, privilege, and corruption.

To solve the mystery, he must deal with three murders, a beautiful used car dealer, her lovely twin sisters, and a crooked banker. Not to mention Burke and Hare, two crazy repo men who will stop at nothing to protect their employer's interests. There's also the matter of an ingenious, sadistic killer. But nothing is ever quite what it seems.

    "Wrecked Em Hell! Almost Killed Em!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Checkmate to be better than the print version?

    I haven't yet read the Kindle version. This is a favorite series, so I plan to read all of the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry Starke. He's the main character and in the middle of the action.


    What about Tom Lennon’s performance did you like?

    The voice acting almost lets you become an actual player in the story! Excellent pacing, good clear voice!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very much Entertained! I do get a bit choked up when the audio book gets near the end. LOL


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy action, mystery, Noir then this a good series. All the Harry Starke books are "stand alone". I would recommend reading / listening in order, but that's your perogative.

    This audiobook was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you!
