This series looks sharply at those who perceive themselves as the rich - the elite, and revolves around expensive cars, clothes and posh country clubs. Fans of Sue Grafton, J.A. Jance, and Sara Peretsky will find Shelton's female sleuth captivating. Devout in her dedication for the underdog, Charlie Parker gets drawn into perilous predicaments while sticking her neck out for friends and clients in trouble. She proves a wily opponent for the evil she discovers. Using her trusty jeep for surveillance, she is aided and abetted by Rusty, a huge, lovable mutt.

Listener Opinions

    " There was very little to this story. The mystery was obvious and the characters were not all that appealling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauralynn Elliott | 2/13/2014

    " This book definitely kept me interested throughout. I was surprised at who the killer was. I had briefly considered that person, but dismissed them. I usually figure out "whodunit", so I was glad I didn't in this one. A good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 2/11/2014

    " A decent first entry in a new series. Charlie needs to be fleshed out a little more, but she is interested enough that I plan to read the next book in the series. "

    " Loved driving around Albuquerque with her. I knew where she was the entire time. This is why I read the book b/c it is set in Albuquerque. Good little cozy mystery and easy, enjoyable ready. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bruno da Maremma | 5/12/2013

    " no plot to speak of, no characters worth re-visiting in future publications, avoid the series. I can't believe I read the whole thing! OK I did wind up skimming a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 4/23/2013

    " Disclaimer: I am the author. This was my first mystery and I had a great time writing it. I was thrilled when I got great reviews on Deadly Gamble (the Albuquerque Journal called it "an impressive debut mystery"). Those good reviews encouraged me to keep writing the Charlie Parker series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 3/24/2013

    " I listened to the audio book - a very (and I mean *very*) bored-sounding person read this book which made it a little hard to get through. Otherwise, a pretty good story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn Demsky | 12/25/2012

    " Was an entertaining, well written good read! I liked the characters and how they work well together in their business and enjoyed her dog! (Although it spent an awful lot of time by itself stuck in cars, offices.) Will track down the rest of the series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/12/2012

    " Good; Continuing character: Charlie Parker (first in series); accountant tries her hand out at being a PI when an old friend asks her to find her stolen Rolex, and then the thief ends up dead "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gillian Porter | 11/29/2012

    " not bad for a freebie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack | 11/14/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 8/23/2012
