Dead women tell no tales.

Former cat burglar Rook Stevens stole many a priceless thing in the past, but he’s never been accused of taking a life—until now. It was one thing to find a former associate inside Potter’s Field, his pop culture memorabilia shop, but quite another to stumble across her dead body.

Detective Dante Montoya thought he’d never see Rook Stevens again—not after his former partner falsified evidence to entrap the jewelry thief and Stevens walked off scot-free. So when he tackled a fleeing murder suspect, Dante was shocked to discover the blood-covered man was none other than the thief he’d fought to put in prison and who still makes his blood sing.

Rook is determined to shake loose the murder charge against him, even if it means putting distance between him and the rugged Cuban-Mexican detective who brought him down. If one dead con artist wasn’t bad enough, others soon follow, and as the bodies pile up around Rook’s feet, he’s forced to reach out to the last man he’d expect to believe in his innocence—and the only man who’s ever gotten under Rook’s skin.

Story Review:

I have lost count of the number of Rhys Ford titles I have read (or listened to as the case may be). She continues to impress me with each and every title.

I did see some parallels between Murder and Mayhem and the first Cole McGinnis Mystery, Dirty Kiss. These parallels were probably exacerbated by the fact that they had the same narrator and, therefore, a lot of the same voices were used.

The murder mystery, however, was solid and enjoyable. It kept me listening all the way through.

Caroline and Beverley joined together to do our original review of Murder and Mayhem.

Narration Review:

I am running out of ways to say, if Greg Tremblay is narrating, LISTEN TO IT. He is more than just a solid narrator. He lifts the story he is reading up and makes it better. He helps you immerse yourself entirely in the world you are listening to.
