To catch this killer—and prevent more mayhem—Desiree is really going to have to throw her considerable weight around...

Editorial Reviews

“What makes this audio really fly is stage and screen actress and prolific narrator Rosenblat’s reading. She is Desiree Shapiro and, as Desiree narrates, this works very well indeed. Great listening.”  Kliatt
“Barbara Rosenblat has a lot of fun with an entertaining story and its goofy characters, capturing every silly nuance and magnifying comic effect…Rosenblat’s versatility is best showcased in exactly this type of book.” AudioFile
