Publisher's Summary

Book one of the Dirty Harriet mysteries

Goodbye mansion, hello Hog. This former Boca Babe is now a Biker Babe with a rap sheet and a license to track down bad guys and solve crimes. Go ahead. Make her day.

Harriet "Dirty Harriet" Horowitz had it all. Money. Plastic surgery. Servants. Then her husband raised his fist one time too many, and she shot and killed him. Now, she lives in the South Florida swamps, rides a Harley, and owns a private eye agency. Her best friend - the only friend who makes sense anymore - is an alligator named Lana.

Then the Contessa von Phul, a woman from Harriet's society days, hires Harriet to investigate the death of a Mayan immigrant worker. With her assistant Lupe - an eccentric civil servant - and a .44 Magnum, Dirty Harriet hits the mean streets of Boca Raton to dig for clues. What won't she do to uncover the truth? Her search for answers forces her to return to her old world of Boca Babes and McMansions. When she discovers scandal after scandal, will she be able to escape Boca with her life - yet again?

Dirty Harriet, Miriam Auerbach's debut mystery novel, won a Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award. Miriam can only assume that this is because the heroine kills her husband on page one. In a parallel universe, Miriam is known as Miriam Potocky, professor of social work at Florida International University in Miami. She lives in South Florida with her husband and their multicultural canines, a Welsh Corgi and a Brussels Griffon.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I just finished the audio version of Dirty Harriet: Volume 1 (Dirty Harriet Mystery Series) by Miriam Auerbach and narrated by Karen Commins. I couldn't stop listening to it! It's very entertaining and definitely a good piece of "brain candy" (think chocolate for the brain).

    The story starts with Harriet telling us about how she killed her abusive and drug addicted husband at a wedding with a .44 gun. Before doing so, she remarked in front of 500 wedding guests, Clint Eastwood style, "Go ahead. Make my day." Thus, she's been fondly referred to as "Dirty Harriet" ever since. It doesn't hurt that she's now in the Private Investigation business and legally carries a gun.

    The story itself involves a mystery surrounding an illegal immigrant who was murdered over a year ago. An elderly rich widow hires Harriet to investigate the unsolved murder. The mystery had me guessing until about the time Harriet figured it out herself, which was a big plus for me. But, what I enjoyed most was Harriet's sense of humor and internal thought process. She's a "real" person, who enjoys riding and working on her motorcycle, despite having lived for more than 10 years in a McMansion.

    Karen's narration is as real as Harriet is. I was totally engrossed and imagined that I was listening to Harriet's thoughts and snarky comments, rather than listening to a reader's narration of a book. I'd listen to another one of her renditions any day!

    In short, Dirty Harriett is a great story to take you away from a very average and normal (dull) life. Thank you for the escape, Karen (and Miriam)!
