With some sleuthing experience already under her belt and a boyfriend who works for the NYPD, Alison Bergeron offers to help the Ecuadorian immigrant who she meets at the soup kitchen she works in find his missing nephew. But of course, in this, the third installment of Maggie Barbieri’s Murder 101 series, Alison finds herself getting involved in a more complex problem than she had imagined when the nephew turns up dead. Gayle Hendrix reprises her role, giving a sassy performance as the detective who gets by as much on her dry wit as her inspection skills. Here is another fun, light, mystery that will delight listeners.
College English professor Alison Bergeron thought that dating a cute NYPD detective like Bobby Crawford would be exciting and involve a lot of riding around in cruisers and putting away sleazy crooks, but he has yet to invite her on any stakeouts.... Then when a friend asks her to help him find his nephew, she goes to Bobby for advice only to find out that he already knows about the case. He pulled the boy out of the Hudson River a few days earlier. The boy’s employer calls it an accident, but Alison and Bobby aren’t convinced.
With matchmaking and sleuthing to spare, staying out of trouble isn’t on the syllabus when Alison and Bobby team up in Quick Study, Maggie Barbieri’s most outrageous outing yet.
