Publisher's Summary

Struggling to recover from a disastrous marriage and contentious divorce, Casey Fremont would prefer to make ends meet with her paycheck from a temp job. But now her goal of personal and mental renewal becomes one of staying alive as she solves a riddle of murder and mayhem.

Casey Fremont is on her way to interview for a temp job when a falling body nearly lands on her. Three days later, a second man, this one from her own office, dies in a similar manner and Casey is drawn into the intrigue. She confirms her suspicions, but one of her friends ends up in the hands of kidnappers. Casey must solve the mystery before she becomes the third body to go over the railing.

    "An easy and fun listen!"

    Casey starts her own sleuthing of an apparent suicide victim while working as a temp. It's a fun listen but too much inane detail.
    Aisling Gray did a great job with narration...easy to distinguish between different characters especially the southern drawl when Effie was talking.
    Overall an entertaining listen.
    This book was given to me by AudiobookBlast in return for an unbiased review.

    "Good first in a new series."

    This review is for the audio version. One-Two, Kill a Few is the first in a new series by John Achor. It’s light, entertaining and the mystery is well plotted. I didn’t really warm up to the protagonist, Casey Fremont, but the story was interesting enough to keep me listening. She felt shallow to me. For example, when a body falls from the 10th floor to land a few feet from her, she’s more interested in the “hot” guy who knocks her out of the way than the dead man. Then the police show up and the detective is also very “hot”. I don’t remember the exact words, but as she walks away she’s thinking how she’s just met two hot guys who are both interested in her and how, except for the dead man, her day is getting better and better. I liked her new roommates and the relationship growing between the three of them.
    The mystery in the book was good enough for me to try the second in the series, in hopes that the characters are more fully developed. The narrator, Aisling Gray, did a great job differentiating between the characters and her voice is easy to listen to.

    "One-Two, Kill a Few"

    I found this to be a good book. I love a fast paced Mystery books, and I found this one very amusing.
    The characters are well written, and very enjoyable. I loved her roommates, and how they all joined together to catch the killer! i enjoyed their sneaky around, their gatherings around the kitchen table to compare notes.
    All this while trying to keep up at her job, and develop a new romance with the detective thats on the case.
    I found myself laughing there are many funny parts,. Like i said, her roommates were great fun!

    The narrator was right on point! She did very well with the voices and was a joy to listen to!
    I look forward to listening to book 2!

    "Too Detailed"

    I found the book pretty boring. It was too detailed like what the heroine was eating and wearing and brushing her teeth. Also the plot was a little thin and dragged on. Seemed amateurish. However the narrators performance was excellant, especially when she had such thin material to work with. She had great voices for her characters, especially the Southern Belle Effie.

    Story
    "Series fits the bill"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story is an interest catching one, and narration superb. Many attempts have been tried in this genre to find a non stereotypical protagonist, this one succeeded. The plot is uncluttered with unnecessary stuff.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Casey, well, because the action is built for her to handle. Along with some strong contenders as sidekicks.


    Which character – as performed by Aisling Gray – was your favorite?

    Casey again, but the narrator did an admirable job with each character in the evolving mystery.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    When you dodge one falling body, watch out for others.


    Any additional comments?

    Great listen! This is light and fun so don't expect Gorky Park, just expect being entertained for awhile!

    Thanks for letting me listen.

    "One, Two, Kill a Few"

    The reader, Aisling Gray, made me feel like she was sitting across from me telling her very credible story. There was no confusion of characters as she narrated. The story line put the listener right at the scene , almost as an observer. I enjoyed this book.

    Story
    "A few hours I'll never get back!"

    I was given a promotional copy in exchange for my honest review, so here it is ... in a nutshell, this is "revenge fantasy" material for bitter women. Bear in mind that with audio I can't go back and transcribe passages easily, so I stand by my references below as close paraphrases .

    Casey starts out angry that her ex-husband's alimony check is late again, so she needs to scramble to make the payment on the condo she was awarded in the divorce; she goes on to say that she believes he does that on purpose hoping she'll be evicted.

    So, she goes to the temp agency where she's registered to get an assignment. Our protagonist is quite confident that she'll get one because ... when she showed up the first time for an interview, the manager proceeded to grope her, so she turned the tables by groping him HARD (where it hurts) forcing him to admit what a pig he is in front of witnesses. Casey has no job history, because her ex wouldn't "let" her work while they were married. Yes, you read that right, in the 21st century he decreed that, and she accepted it. Instead, she took a slew of "courses" acing each, natch. So, she got the agency owner to put her on the books as a preferred client.

    On arrival at the job site, she's nearly hit by a falling body, saved by the hot building security manager, who is attracted to her. Casey is very attracted to the detective in charge of the case; as soon as he takes her statement, verifying she has nothing more to add, he tells her, "Good, because now that you're finished being part of the events I can ask you out!"

    Soon thereafter, there's a misunderstanding where she and her new roommate assume an applicant for a third slot is a woman, but that's not so. They like him, but hold off a bit, which gives her time to run into the detective at the building to ask him "Should I take a gay black male as a roommate?" (I cannot swear she said 'black' but am fairly certain). He asks the guy's name, then tells her, "I know him, he's a great guy!" Bear in mind they haven't even had that date yet.

    Then we get the story of her actual divorce. It seems her husband, a very successful rich local attorney represented himself (as someone who worked in the court system, the chances of that happening are lower than hitting the Powerball). He brought his bimbo (my term) with him to sit at counsel table, introducing her as a "paralegal trainee" at which Casey reports that the judge rolled her eyes. Upshot is that the judge awarded her as much as she possibly could after the husband "repeatedly" referred to Casey as a "witch" (only stronger). If you are willing to suspend disbelief that he did that once in open court (a remote possibility, very remote), but "repeatedly"? A judge would've been all over him the first time, a second time and he'd have been immediately up on contempt charges.

    Perhaps I'm a picky curmudgeon, and it's really a fun read, but I've given the highlights accurately in a promised honest review, and my job is done. I have no position on the narration itself.
