Gillian Roberts’ witty, literate Amanda Pepper mysteries are irresistible. Following the adventures of Philadelphia’s finest English teacher/detective, the books crackle with humor and suspense. When a class trip coincides with a murder, Amanda’s concern over the behavior of one of her students makes him the prime suspect. Dusting off her sleuthing skills in an effort to clear him, Amanda finds enough suspicious suspects to stuff a cheese steak sandwich. As she struggles to overcome a pompous principal, a romantic reference librarian, and a slew of listless students to get at the truth, Amanda starts to wonder if she should look for a new line of work. Adam and Evil showcases Roberts and Pepper at their snappy, wise-cracking best. Christina Moore’s narration adds just the right touch of exasperated frustration. Listeners who enjoyed Amanda’s earlier adventures in books like The Bluest Blood and The Mummer’s Curse are in for another treat.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes I would. It's not my favorite of the series, but it's very good and kept me guessing.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes, it kept changing and evolving into something entirely different.
Would you be willing to try another one of Christina Moore’s performances?
No. She's the reason I only gave this book a 3 star rating. She's not a good reader, especially compared to Susan Denaker who also reads the Amanda Pepper series.
Do you think Adam and Evil needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
The series does build on itself and so the next book is the follow-up in a way.
