Granger’s mystery series features a unique protagonist: young Fran Varady is formerly homeless. Her personal history gives her detecting abilities a different slant. Narrator Kim Hicks is accurate with the accents required for the many foreign characters Granger often incorporates into her stories. The most memorable characters are Fran and her friend Ganish, as well as his family, along with the many immigrants who work the strip club circuit that is the centerpiece of the novel. Hicks plays Fran to perfection—she’s smart and compassionate, and she always remembers her roots. This series will appeal to a wider audience than many mysteries. S.G.B.
