#4 in Pegasus Quincy Mystery
Average Rating: 4.0
Meet Silver Delaney, con artist extraordinaire.
Most foster homes are places of love and compassion. Silver had the bad luck to be raised in the other kind. Rather than what could be, she lives by the truth of what is.
Silver has three rules. Number one - People don't always do what they say they will do. Number Two - The world is full of danger. Number Three - Look out for number one.
And that is exactly what she intends to do when she arrives in the Verde Valley of Arizona. Her goals are simple: find her (rich, of course) birth parents, con them out of as much money as she can, and start over in a new life.
Her dream job will be a famous chef in Paris, or a doctor collecting grateful accolades and high salary, or even an award-winning actress. But then she gets accused of murder and scrambles to prove herself innocent.
Is she up to it? Find out how Silver's brand of justice prevails in this fast-paced mystery, at times humorous and romantic, set in the rural Southwest.
This is a very good, suspenseful mystery, but it's the great characters that really make this story special.
Amy Otteson has become the voice of Pegasus Quincy, and she does make an effort to give distinctive voices to other characters, but her repertoire of voices is rather limited. Other than that, her performance is quite satisfactory.
