"Listeners share bookseller Pen's sigh of relief as Angel Stark, notorious party girl and author of a true-crime book on the unsolved murder of a friend, wraps up her author speech and leaves Pen's store. But this reaction proves to be premature as Angel disappears and later turns up murdered. Caroline Shaffer takes the lead in performing the cozy mystery sections narrated by Pen that make up the majority of this audiobook. Traber Burns voices the noir-sounding third-person chapters that portray Jack Shepard, the ghost of a 1940s P.I. who helps Pen. While the pair of narrators don't blend well together, each does an effective job individually. V.M.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
