Publisher's Summary

After shooting one of her own clients and accidentally getting involved with the mob, Sofie Metropolis is finally starting to get the hang of the PI business. She's just landed her first high-profile case. A local Astoria girl has made good by marrying an up-and-coming South American pitcher who has just been signed by the New York Mets. Reni Venezuela's good looks and charm, not to mention his fastball and his slider, are bringing hordes of fans to Shea Stadium. But despite his stellar record, Reni's wife insists something's wrong with her husband. Can Sofie find out what?

Meanwhile, romance and all its complications are heating up for Sofie. But while the Mets steamroll toward the pennant race, Sofie must tail Reni and hope that whatever she discovers (steroids or an affair?) won't cost her beloved Mets the Series.

fine for passing the time

Books from this series are all reasonably entertaining as long as you don't pay too much attention. My complaints first: The format is so similar to the Stephanie Plum books that it can elicit eye rolls. The narrator on this one is different from the other books. The narration is mostly very good... but, she only does three voices: Sophie, Rosie and then everyone else is Greek, even if they are Hispanic or Jewish.

That being said, all of the books are fast paced and amusing and this is the best of the lot.

No Anna Fields, but still a good story

Fans of the Sofie Metropolis audiobooks are saddened at the passing of Narrator Anna Fields and we miss her way of bringing Greek America to the rest of us. Ms Rogers does a capable job of of continuing the story, but I would find myself missing the way Anna spoke certain words or voices. Aside from the narrator issue, I enjoyed the story and hope that the author will continue with the new storyline direction introduced at the end of the book.

VERY DISAPPOINTING

I cannot seem to be able to get past a few moments of this book. The new narrator reads like she is going to a fire and cannot seem to do multiple voices. Why they changed from Anna Fields is lost on me. It was certainly a waste of my credits to buy this book. Very disappointed.
