Publisher's Summary

Another coast-to-coast challenge for the Dickens Detective Agency.

When Bruno Caravaggio confesses to a murder he didn’t commit, Damien returns to Atlantic City to find the killer and clear his friend’s name. His task is complicated by Bruno’s desire to protect his mother and her equally strong instinct to defend her son.

While Damien is away, Millie agrees to look into the claim of an eccentric Carmel-by-the-Sea resident that her children are trying to poison her. Her investigation leads her to Rancho Luna Azul, which sells its meat at several farmers markets in the area.

As she explores the connection between Rancho Luna Azul and the poisoning claim of her client, Millie becomes enmeshed in the FBI’s probe of a drug distribution ring operating out of the same premises. Risking capture - and possible death - at the hands of the drug ring, Millie bluffs her way inside and collects the evidence the FBI needs to complete its case.

Millie really comes into her own in this one

Another great cozi. My only complaint is she needs to write them faster! Narrator just seems to fit the style and the ers.

Love the Era!

No cell phones or fancy tech here. Just plain old detective work by a loveable couple. Narration fits the era and the characters perfectly.

Clean Cozi Detective

The intricate plot is more than enough to keep you interested all the way through. As long as Entis keeps writing them I will keep buying them.

Yet again another good detective mystery

Loved Phyllis Entis detective novel always making one listen carefully even sometimes rewinding and listening again. Milly is my favourite character and Tom Lennon imitates her so well. Hope there will be lots more novels.

Very enjoyable series

The latest installment in the Damian Dickens series. Millie and Damian are now in Carmel, California. Millie gets caught up in an investigation of a suspected poisoning while Damian is called back to Atlantic City to help an old friend who has confessed to murder. Add in Millie's son, Colin and you have a complex series of events and investigations. There are tears, there is laughter, and there is lots of love.

I really enjoy these books. They are interesting, keep you guessing, and make you think. A great cast of characters, and a great narrator make this a series I'm always happy to listen to.

Great entertainment

I absolutely loved this story. I think it might be my favorite in the series, except for one part that I can't disclose or it will ruin the story. It is sad. Anyway, Millie is recovering from her injuries sustained in the last book, the couple has moved to Carmel, CA (will they stay there? Hm. we'll see), and some of the characters in the past books with limited exposure are integrals characters in this one. I live in California, so I loved seeing the duo on my home turf. If you think you'll miss the detective team in Atlantic City, you'll get a nice surprise. The story as usual flows well and is suspenseful, going back and forth between Dick's active case and Millie trying to hold things down on the home front. She's not getting a lot of rest though, which I'm sure her doctor would frown upon. You'll love the book if you're a fan of cozy mysteries.

Old School Detective Work

I've 'read' all of Entis' Dickens series and I think the Blue Moon Caper is my favorite thus far. I love the era the series is set in; Dick and Millie have to use their brains/intuition to figure things out. I'm always cheering Millie on when she has her own mystery to tackle and I especially loved the story line between her and Colin. Another big thumbs up to the author.
