Considering the kind of disasters that usually befall the half-black, half-Jewish mystery writer, probably both. Because the last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye; a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along, you know, for research?
But when her brother-in-law turns up dead and her sister becomes the prime suspect, Sophie's priority is finding the real killer. With or without Anatoly's help. Her brother-in-law's secret life yields plenty of suspects, but the San Francisco police aren't taking any of them seriously. So Sophie does what comes naturally to her: she stirs up trouble (to lure the killer out, of course).
But if her crazy plan works, will Anatoly be there to protect her this time?
Solve another case with Sophie Katz.

"Following hard on the red spike heels of 2005's Sex, Murder, and a Double Latte, Davis' second whodunit delivers on the promise of the first....Davis chooses style over substance, skillfully keeping the snappy dialogue funny all the way to the unsurprising surprise ending." (Publishers Weekly)
I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I thought it was very funny. It really held my attention.
Every now and then a narrator comes along that grabs you instantly and sucks you into the story. Gabra Zackman is pitch perfect in her portrayal of each of these unique characters and makes the story come to life on audio.
Yeah, I just did not enjoy this book at all. Bland story. The real killer was the reader. She spoke with a deeper voice for all the female characters. It made it difficult to see the characters as real people. I kept trying to get past the voice and see the people through my own eyes, but even then the story was a lot of nothing. No real mystery...just a lot of talk like "Well maybe it was this person for this reason". A good mystery needs clues and a twist. Skip this one!
