Publisher's Summary

It's a warm August morning in 1926 Los Angeles, California. Mercedes Louise Allcutt (Mercy to her friends) is thrilled to be going to her job as secretary to private investigator Ernie Templeton - until she opens the door and discovers her mother on the doorstep. Known to her friends as Honoria and her daughters as The Wrath of God, Mrs. Allcutt is the very last person earth whom Mercy wants to see, barring a couple of coldblooded murderers she's met in the past few weeks.

But that's only the beginning of Mercy's latest adventure. Add a couple of phony spiritualists, a Hollywoodland gossip columnist who gets bumped off during a seance, a semi-famous starlet, and several other colorful characters, and Mercy Manages to find herself in very deep waters indeed.

LAUGH OUT LOUD LISTEN

What is worse than having a overbearing,over dominating mother? Having an overbearing/over dominating mother show up at the door of your home unannounced and telling you she has left her husband! That is Mercy Allcutt's first problem in her second book titled ANGELS FLIGHT by Alice Duncan.

In Mercy's latest book,Mercy not only has to deal with murders, yes murders plural, but worse of all her overbearing mother shows up , luggage in hand and turns Mercey and her sisters life upside down.


If you like laugh out loud historical murder mysteries then this series is perfect for you. The narration is perfect and the narrator brings all the characters to life.

A funny and suspenseful story!

This is the first book I have heard of this author's. At times I found the humor a little slapstick as this takes place probably around the 1950's, when children were to respect their parents by their words and actions. Mercy works for Ernie a Private Investigator in California. Mercedes (Mercy) has lead a sheltered life so she is somewhat niave to things that happen at Ernie's office and out in the world of California actors etc. I found her to be quite an interesting character that gave me lots of laughs. I enjoyed how she wants to help solve crimes but has no idea of how to protect herself. I think Ernie is a great boss and the way he and Mercy interact is hilarious. I enjoyed how the crime was solved and all the things happening in the background of this book. I'm interested in reading or listening to more books by this author.
I received a free code for this book from Audiobooks Unleashed to listen to on Audible. This review is my own honest opinion
