Since her beat is celebrity crime, Bailey Weggins is assigned to cover the sensational murder of Mona Hodges, the dictatorial editor of BUZZ, whose list of personal enemies and those who would profit from her death could stretch from one end of Manhattan to the other. Julia Gibson's girlish voice projects more sweetness and vulnerability into her narration than one might expect from a savvy and sophisticated urban crime writer. Her delivery does not differentiate characters, and her vocal sound effects are inadequate. For example, a "tisk-tisk" vocalization comes across as a weak attempt to capture the sound of leather scuffing on pavement as someone runs away.
