(1 customer review)


“A love for sex and poetry were the only things my daughter got out of college,” an elderly lady says. Now, she runs an escort service. One of her girls was murdered last year. Did my daughter have anything to do with it? Scott Kaven, a former Houston homicide detective turned private eye, takes on the case involving a Green Bay, Wisconsin, escort service and its striking owner. With the confidence and experience of a successful cop, a smart ass attitude, and a sharp sense of humor of his own, Kaven gets things done. He gets past the logjam the law enforcement couldn’t surmount but he also finds himself on a hit list because of his involvement in the case. Full of action and mystery, this first of a new series is an exciting start for a set of engaging characters.

    This is the first book by this author that I have listened to but I quiet enjoyed it. I am not sure the narrator was right for the story which is why it only gets a four star from me. I liked the idea of the plot and with a lot going on it holds your interest until the end. The characters were like able but I think I would have liked the hacker to play a big part in the story, with his humour he would have added wit to the story that the main character couldn’t pull off. I will be keeping an eye out for more books by this author.
    Kaven is an ex cop turned private detective and for his first case he is hired by an elderly lady to find out the truth. Her daughter owns an escort agency and one of her girls was killed a year ago. The police haven’t got any where solving the brutal murder and the client wants to know if her daughter was involved in the death. Kaven agrees to take the case but soon find himself caught in the crosshairs of a hit man. There was a reason the police hadn’t solve the case and that was because it was more complicated than it looked and with majors players with big money involved they will stop at nothing to keep.the case unsolved.
    I didn’t get on with the narrator he was to gruff and I really had to listen hard to understand him. With a deep voice the characters tended to sound the same but I did get use to it in the end but can’t help but wonder if it would have got a five star with a different narrator.
