Sexy, platinum-blonde movie siren Gertrude Hurd had it all – fame, men, and riches. But now she’s dead. A fallen angel whose broken body and tarnished halo lie on a hillside behind her beachfront cafe. It’s 1931, and private detective Tom Logan is back, once again immersed in a perplexing mystery that has him racing against time to track down a merciless killer. As the body count grows, so do the suspects, and his investigation soon has him bucking against corrupt city officials, the mob, and the Hollywood studio system.

    A MURDER AMONGST ANGELS BY TONY PIAZZA is the first in this series that I have listened to. It is listed as second in the TOM LOGAN series. I really enjoyed listening to the narration of the audiobook. James Romick brings the hard boiled detective Tom Logan to life as well as all the other characters.

    A MURDER AMONGST ANGELS is set in the 1930’s . The Great Depression is on the downslide and inflation is on the rise: bread and milk are 9 and 16 cents and Tom Logan is looking at the dead body of his client ,the blond bombshell (bottled blond bombshell) Gertrude Hurd and his morning and day is ruined. Tom vows to find the murderer ,which he finds is difficult. Seems Gertrude is not exactly loved by all , she drinks to access,hates her ex’s is suing the studio she works for and does drugs,which makes Tom’s job even harder.

    I loved this book and cant wait to hear all the rest in the series. The audio book is 10 hours long which could have been shaved down to at least eight by trimming out some of the last two chapters. The last two chapters were in this listeners humble opinion way to long and in places totally irreverent. Other than that, this book is a great listen , a good mystery and a fun hard boiled detective read.
