Blues in the Night is a book of firsts: Rochelle Krich's first novel recorded on audio; the debut of true-crime writer Molly Blume, Krich's new protagonist; and Deanna Hurst's first audiobook recording. Each first is a success. Krich's novels frequently weave murder with stories involving Orthodox Jewish characters. Some liken Krich to Faye Kellerman, but her style is softer and warmer. In Molly Blume, Krich creates her best central character, crafting a story with plot twists and an ending that ties everything together convincingly. Hurst also shines. Her soft, almost sultry, voice fits Blume and gives her the right mix of warmth, intensity, and vulnerability. She also excels at imbuing each character with a distinct personality, supplying just the right inflections and accents. Krich's fans, who have long awaited her audio debut, have been rewarded.
