Narrator Angela Dawe assumes a millennial's exasperated tone, endearing listeners to Hazel Greenlee, a wannabe novelist. Working the graveyard shift in a small Wisconsin town, the depressed, troubled Hazel is shackled to a computer in a grim police station, where she transcribes recorded police reports. Hazel's curiosity about a case involving a dead child thrusts her into a seamy murder. This riveting debut features colorful characters, including despicable crooks and lovable heroes. Dawe moves the narrative seamlessly between Hazel's amateur detective life and her troubled home life. Dawe's intelligent-sounding delivery of Hazel's ambitious vocabulary and sometimes flowery observations continually reminds listeners of the character's literary ambitions. R.O.
