Publisher's Summary

The second book in the new Paladino and Lang mystery series from the author of the Deets Shanahan mysteries - Sweet William, a professional companion to the wealthy, needs help. A famous, but not beloved, novelist is found dead, and William is the prime suspect. His only recourse is for the real murderer to be found.

Working from an impressive list of suspects, all whose secrets were to be revealed in the victim’s unpublished tell-all memoir, Carly Paladino and Noah Lang stir up serious trouble on their hunt for the missing manuscript – and the murderer.

Just boring and slow moving

Unable to get through more than one hour. it was just so boring and slow moving. I wanted to keep listening and hopefully get into the characters but didn’t happen! Just not interesting. The narrator has a lovely voice but somehow her tone added to the boredom.

second story

This is the second book in the Lang and Paladino PI team.
I enjoyed it. The mystery was not really clear - yes they will do all they investigating. I did enjoy all the different characters and the narrator.

Story drags a bit

The story goes on a bit longer than seems necessary to get the plot established and concluded. Some of the pronunciations are distracting...Jaguar.

Have got to remember this narrator

I got this book because I had listened to the previous one. To be honest, and not to be mean, if I remember the narrator I would not have. I can’t stand the way she reads. I don’t think the infections she uses are correct and I HATE some of the voices she uses. I guess that’s the point of previewing which I need to start doing.

So boring

I gave up on this about a third of the way through. Story never developed enough to hold my interest. I wasted a credit on this one.
