When pretty, smart Sara Long is found bludgeoned to death, it's easy to blame the man with the bat. But Georgia Davis - former cop and newly-minted PI - is hired to look into the incident at the behest of the accused's sister, and what she finds hints at a much different, much darker answer. It seems the privileged, preppy schoolgirls on Chicago's North Shore have learned just how much their innocence is worth to hot-under-the-collar businessmen. But while these girls can pay for Prada price tags, they don't realize that their new business venture may end up costing them more than they can afford.

Love gritty mystery thrillers.
I didn't read the print version, just the audio. I will say the narrator was excellent.
I enjoy a mystery that keeps me guessing and this one did just that. The book also starts off right away with a hook that drew me into the story and wanting to know more. I also appreciated that the romance was kept to a minimum... about 5% romance and 95% related to the stories plot. I would say the most suspensive part was when Georgia was sleeping on her sofa while an assassin was aiming for her through a window.
I wouldn't be able to multi-task if it weren't for narrators. This narrator was professional and had a pleasant voice.
Yes, and SPOLIER!! For once, it was a book without a happy ending with the couple reuniting. Too many authors write women as soooo needy. Georgia decided that she didn't need Matt to be complete. Yay for Georgia and yay to Libby for taking the road less traveled in mystery novels.
“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.” I also want to say that although I got a free copy of this book, I am using my next credit to buy the next book in the series, it was that good.
This was an excellent suspenseful mystery. Georgia, the protagonist is a strong well-written character Who is still yet very relatable. As a general rule I am not crazy about female private investigators however I very much enjoyed the way that this character was portrayed. This is the first novel in a series, I very much look forward to reading more of the books in this series. I received this book from the author narrator or publisher at no cost to me for a honest review
You're going to want to know who Georgia Davis is. This is the place to find out. When a popular teenager is murdered, a local autistic man who just happened to be nearby gets blamed. It's up to Georgia to find out the truth. Fans of Rizzoli and Isles will find this right up their alley, but almost any mystery fan who starts it is going to enjoy it. Libby is a terrific author and one of my faves.

Georgia Davis became a private investigator after she was suspended from police force. A teen girl dies and Georgia has to find out if it was a hazing gone wrong or something more sinister. There are many twists and turns as the body count rises. I liked this mystery /thriller/ suspense book and look forward to more in this series.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
This is a great book; this is the first book in the Georgia Davis PI series written by Libby Fischer Hellmann and narrated by Beth Richmond. When pretty, smart Sara Long is found bludgeoned to death, it's easy to blame the man with the bat. But Georgia Davis - former cop and newly-minted PI - is hired to look into the incident at the behest of the accused's sister, and what she finds hints at a much different, much darker answer.
The narrator Beth Richmond did a great job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
