📙 A Pointed Death: First in the Pointer Mystery Series by Kath Russell, narrator Kate Luhr


3


Welcome to the world of Nola Billingsley, a 40-something biotechnology whiz, with an adored shorthaired pointer, who finds herself embroiled in both a nefarious murder and a blazingly hot new romance in the thriller A Pointed Death by Kath Russell. When techno genius Nola Billingsley finds her former employee - an amoral creep who stole secrets - murdered, she doesn’t exactly shed tears. Instead, she begins a flirtation with the inspector assigned to the case. With her shorthaired pointer Skootch watching her back, Nola and her group of techno pals try to help solve the murder, bringing into play Nola’s feisty feminism and idealism, and putting both her life and her love affair at risk. Finding a link between the Chinese government and American thieves, she bands with a group who believes that biotech people should protect their industry from any evil abusers. Could there be a government plot afoot, and can she save the world even as she tries to salvage her love life?Smart, witty, and playful, A Pointed Death looks at the biotech industry with a decidedly feminine slant. The writing is edgy and full of humor, and the plot twists and turns with surprise after surprise. A breathtaking thriller with a unique background, A Pointed Death announces the debut of an enormously talented new writer to watch. ©2010 Katharine A. Russell (P)2010 Katharine A. Russell

"Warning: listen to sample first!"

The narrator seems to be in a race against the book! She reads so fast you can hear her swallows & gulps for air! I did manage to finish the book, but don't think I will ever listen to another one narrated by Kate Luhr - very distracting. I'm not even sure about the writing, the reading was so "let's just get through it."
