Accept an organized crime boss as a client? Desiree Shapiro’s first thought is, "No way!" But take the case she does, committing herself to finding out who murdered her client's favorite political protégé. Barbara Rosenblat has a lot of fun with an entertaining story and its goofy characters, capturing every silly nuance and magnifying comic effect. Desiree blossoms into an astute, though at times fumbling, detective, with a heart as big as her stature is small. Her partner, Lou, is just a little off the mark, and at the end of the story we find out why. Crime boss/client Vito de Silva sends shivers up our spines from the first cassette, delicious shivers that speak of intimidation rather than threat. Rosenblat’s versatility is best showcased in exactly this type of book. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
