Ace Detective Abigail Avery is just a hard-boiled gal trying to make the world a better place, one scumbag at a time. Starting with Dirty Dick, the greasy mac who lost Avery her job with the department and killed her partner to boot. On top of which, now he's snatched Avery's best gal, the enigmatic and beautiful cabaret dancer Moira Delight. It's all down to one final showdown in the rain and only one sorry sucker is walking away from this. With nothing but her wits, her gun, and the occasional help of spitfire police detective Yvette Garcia, can Avery put Dirty Dick away for good and rescue the tantalizing Moira? Or will a bum leg and bitter betrayal leave Avery eating gravel and her carmine dancer forever beyond her reach?
Great metaphors and descriptions! brought to life by the narrator TJ. easy listening good characters
What made the experience of listening to The Carmine Dancer the most enjoyable?
I liked the way the story was written in the style of 1920's style noir detective movie, and the narrator really got that feeling across.
