Publisher's Summary

Jane Whitefield, the fearless "guide" who helps people in trouble disappear, has just begun her quiet new life as Mrs. Carey McKinnon when she is called upon again to face her toughest opponents yet. Jane must try to save a young girl fleeing a deadly mafioso. The deceptively simple task of hiding the girl propels Jane into the center of horrific events and pairs her with Bernie the Elephant, the Mafia's moneyman. Bernie has a photographic memory, and in order to undo an evil that has been growing for half a century, he and Jane engineer the biggest theft of all time---stealing billions from hidden Mafia accounts---only to face the unprecedented problem of what to do with that much money.

Engaging Main Character; Fast Pace

I've read and listened to this series with real enjoyment. The stories are entertaining and the main character is a fascinating woman. Don't expect highly nuanced plots or large casts of complex characters in this series. Instead you get straight forward action and intriguing tips on how good guys can foil and beat bad guys. Really fun and fast plots.

Unfortunately Ms. Bean robs much of the intrigue from these books with her narration of male voices. She drops her pitch approx an octave, appears to constrict her throat, and gives all of them a painfully gravely voice. Hurts to listen to and really distracts this listener from the plot line.

Narrator should do research.

Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Money to be better than the print version?

n/a

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narrator is good, except her mispronunciation of italian surnames and italian accent is especially annoying. How did nobody notice this? Otherwise narration is fine and matches pace of the story.

Good - except for sudden endings

My 5th Jane Whitfield book. Always disappointed at the endings. So much detail and character development but then a sudden ending with only implied resolutions. Always feels like they forgot to include the last chapter
How they took the Mafia money and anonymously managed to give it charity was interesting and very satisfying. Always like the different ways they create new lives for people
