Publisher's summary

With the death of her father...

Officer Charlene Taylor has received her dream promotion - working Homicide with the LAPD. Her first case is the high-profile murder of Ken Anderson, a playboy UCLA professor with a haunted past. A mafia kingpin, billionaire tycoon, cheated wife, and jaded lover are only a few on a long list of suspects, all with motive and opportunity.

...all hope of reconciliation is lost.

Not only does she feel the pressure from media and her boss to solve her first case, but Charlene must also deal with her father’s murderer, the “Celebrity Slayer", a serial killer who enjoys baiting her with his knowledge of her life and routines.

Can a rookie detective work two high-profile cases and still keep her sanity?

Excellent thriller that you will absolutely enjoy!

Charlene, a detective with the LA police department is busy with two high profile murder cases. One is a prominent business man's son-in-law found murdered in his mistress's apartment. The other is the The Celebrity Slayer, suspected to have killed Charlene's father. 

This was a great story! It was well built up and kept me intrigued throughout. The characters were interesting and it was fast paced with constant progression towards a brilliant twist and climax.

Sharon narrated well and was a good fit for the story. She had good energy and intonation and added to my enjoyment of the story.

I highly recommend this book. It is hectic yet brilliant. Thank you for this amazing performance, i was very entertained.

Like the Story - Narrator Used Accents From the Wrong Part of the Country

Story was quite good. The narrator often used accents from NY & NJ when voicing the LAPD officers. Those accents were disturbing considering they aren’t typical in So Cal.

Horrible Reader

This was a mediocre read. The reader made it almost unbearable. She faked a really bad Brooklyn accent for detectives, which was doubly bad since the setting is L.A.

wasn't surprised by the BBEG but still enjoyed

There are couple mysteries happening at the same time. I saw the foreshadowing of the 2 major players so I wasn't shocked. However the storytelling was engaging and captivated my interest. Narrator was a perfect voice for the mc.

A twisty mystery

This is a very engaging mystery with some quite surprising twists. There's a lot going on in this story which keeps it interesting. Given her issue with booze, Charlene isn't as likable as she might otherwise be, but it doesn't get in the way of the story. The ending is satisfactory with no cliffhanger.

Sharon Huff performs well. She makes an effort to give distinctive voices to the characters and I never had trouble following dialogs.
