High-priced call girl, Tawny Dell boasts a client list that's part Fortune 500, part Five Families. With a PhD in art history and a tidy chunk of money stashed offshore, she hangs up her G-string with plans to retire to a Mediterranean island to open a gallery. Lincoln Walsh, NYPD sex-crimes investigator, has other ideas. He wants Tawny to work undercover at a high-class bordello to discover if a murdered call girl worked there.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I’m listening to more and more audio books lately, and this one’s a keeper! Whether they were the good guys or the bad guys, the characters were incredibly intriguing, and the narrator did a terrific job capturing each voice. My favorite was Benny. I hope I never meet the guy, but he sure was entertaining! Hooked has lots of suspense and a good bit of humor, and the ending surprised me. Good stuff!

What about Francesca Townes’s performance did you like?

Good steady pace, clear and very good job doing several characters, some with accents.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A new twist on the world's oldest profession.
