ARC honest review for Midnight Ink Books via NetGalley.
This is the second book in Tracey Kiely’s, Nic & Nigel mysteries. But the first one that I have read.
Tracey has given a modern twist on the Nick & Nora Charles Mystery, The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett.
A very light and entertaining read. Well written, with a good plot and characters. Glad that I have brought the first book in this series to read.
Former detective Nic and well-heeled wag Nigel star in their own Hollywood whodunit
Walking the red carpet at the Academy Awards with a bow-tied Bullmastiff draws Nic and Nigel Martini plenty of attention from the press. But that’s nothing compared to the attention they receive at the A-list after party, when Hollywood royalty learn they’ve discovered behind-the-scenes footage from an acclaimed film that left one of its stars dead.
Returning home after the party, Nic and Nigel find their house in shambles and their employee DeDee Evans beaten within an inch of her life. And when the weapon used to pummel DeDee implicates a beloved actress, Nic and Nigel drink and banter their way into a modern-day version of a golden-age crime caper.
