Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband's sudden death. Though she's still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane - the world's most famous celebutante wannabe - can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn's best friend, and Hope's somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn's side. But it's not the police Hope is worried about, and the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she's safer knowing nothing about.

I just love all Kelley's books, but it's very difficult to get into when the narrator is so horrible. She even messes up Jaime Vegas' name, pronouncing it, as if Jaime were a Hispanic male name! A previous review called the main character a whiney valley girl, which I completely agree with. These are strong female characters, not young teenagers and it would be great if the narrator took that seriously. Again, once you get past the narrator, you get to enjoy the book...though a little dark and disturbing at points. Still a great book. I'm sort of bumbed to see the same narrator on the next book, but she's not there for the 11th, whoohoo!
Decent story. It picks up 1/3 of the way in so that you notice the horrible narration a little less. The main female character sounds like a vapid whiny valley girl you kind of want to slap. Also she says "Hamie" instead of "Jamie" which is annoying.
The book was good however I dis-like characters that are whinny and make stupid decisions, its frustrating. As for the narrator she is awful for Women of the Underworld...Maybe in a teen book but not for the super natural. WHY do author and or publishers change narrators when they have a been using a great one!!!! Please go back!
I really enjoy listening to Kelley Armstrong's books but the narrator for this book is horrible!! The voices she used sound childish and they don't match the personalities of the characters. If this was the first book of Armstrong's I listened to I would stop and never consider buying another one. The storyline is another hit in the Women of the Otherworld series but please change narrators!!!
I am a big armstrong fan, so I'm sorry to say this one was too dark for me. Pedophilia and the abuse of incest-born retarded people just made me delete this one from my ipod. Sorry. Don't want to read more about that.
