Narrator Frankie Corzo packs tons of pizzazz into her performance of this exciting mystery for young listeners. Teen sleuth Goldie Vance desperately wants her boss at the Crossed Palms Resort Hotel in Florida to appreciate her superior detective skills. When the Bejeweled Aqua Chapeau, a diamond-encrusted swim cap featured in a movie being filmed at the hotel, goes missing, Goldie is on the case. Corzo nails a classic hard-boiled detective tone in the narration. The blend of contemporary language and older slang works perfectly to create a timeless feel. Goldie is bright and bubbly, but deadly serious about her chosen profession. Corzo offers distinct voices for the wide cast of supporting characters--from the cigar-chomping movie director to the would-be poet slinging drinks at the Mermaid Bar.
