Regan Reilly is in New York to attend a crime conference organized by her celebrity-author mother. A friend, Thomas Pilsner - the frenetic president of the Settlers' Club on Gramercy Park - calls Regan, desperately pleading for help. Thomas is distraught over the sudden suspicious deaths of two members of the Settler's Club. The men had promised to donate a cache of valuable diamonds to save the club. But now the diamonds are gone, the men are dead, and Thomas is a mess. He fears the police will suspect he is at the heart of both mysteries, and worse yet, he'll lose his job.
Enter Regan. Who better than the star of Decked, Snagged, Iced, and Twanged to solve the mystery of the missing diamonds and the suspicious deaths? Who better to contend with quirky characters like Lydia Sevatura, the self-styled "Princess of Love" who operates a dating service and her butler, Maldwin Feckles, who has just opened up the first school of butlering in New York City? And who better than Carol Higgins Clark whose sparkling, canny prose keeps listeners guessing "who done it" to the end?
Fleeced is a witty portrait of modern urban life, and proves once again that Carol Higgins Clark is a uniquely talented writer.

"Like an Agatha Christie incarnation, Clark knows how to pull out the whodunit stops of yore.... She cooks with the same three ingredients used by many great mystery writers of the past - elegance, wit, and a good plot." (The Ottawa Citizen)
"Good enough for holiday dessert." (The Calgary Herald)
Yes, this is my 4th go round.. This is a very easy listen with a good story behind it. It's getting better each time I listen to it. No blood and guts just story and good characters.
Actually the storyline is fresh and one I hadn't heard before.
Regan of course. Bright and methodical in her thinking and actions. A very real character.
Oddly enough the use of the sheep.
Regan Rielly of course. She is she a real character. Someone you would want to be friends with in real life.
Nothing extreme, but always good when you can walk away with a smile.
