Before she turned hardboiled, Katy Munger [author of the Casey Jones series] created cosy crime-solvers T.S. Hubbert and his sharp-witted 84-year old aunt Lil. He's a retired personnel manager and she's a retired seamstress. T.S. awakes on the first morning of his retirement from Sterling & Sterling to the ringing of a phone, "Brenda's giant backside" in his face. The trademark Munger sassiness has taken to the page. When murder reveals the investment bank can't save itself without him, T.S. steps in to manage the cast of grumpy old men, grumpy cops, grumpy secretaries, while Auntie, who recognizes a pattern when she sees one, teaches him a little something about reading. Although the red herrings may be obvious even for red herrings and the outcome the stuff of soap opera, from cat rump to solved crime this cosy-with-attitude is fun.

Love it! June 10 2012

I can't remember when I've enjoyed a book as much as Partners in Crime. Just enough quirk to tickle the funny bone. T.S. and his Auntie Lil are a perfect crime-solving duo. A bachelor Human Resources Director and his eighty-four year old aunt. The funniest thing is that it makes perfect sense for them to be investigating corporate murders on Wall Street. How this dynamic team go about their crime solving had me in stitches. This is subtle humor...not belly-laughs but quiet chuckles.

Enjoyable June 3 2012

I liked this well enough that I will read the other books in the series. No explicit language, although there was a little "cussing" here and there. A believable main character who was drawn in with a believable reason. I enjoyed it.
Enjoyable who-done-it April 15 2014

I really enjoyed reading "Partners in Crime" and often couldn't wait to go read the next part; easy and enjoyable read. The main character is realistic in his human observations and flaws. I liked how this was a 'grown-up' story without being salacious.

T.S. Hubbert is called back to work the day after his retirement from a prestigious 'old boys club' bank when a partner is murdered. Together with his beloved Auntie Lil they uncover long hidden secrets that jeopardize the reputation of the old bank. All the while, T.S. examines his relationship to each of the people in his life.
