Reviews & Summaries
(my ears perked up when I heard the part about the 1000 piece puzzle of the Egyptian pyramids - brown piece after brown piece. She uses this again in one of the High Rise Private Eyes book! I wonder how many times she references her own work?)
The audiobook version was enjoyable - the reader's accent does not detract (not familiar enough with that region to know how authentic it might sound) and there are brief musical interludes at each chapter break that provide a nice transition without being intrusive.
