Product Description

From AudioFile

California gumshoe Toby Peters gets called to San Francisco to solve the mystery of who is trying to prevent the opening of Puccini's Madame Butterfly in the newly renovated opera house. Stopping production involves more than picketing. It involves murder. This crime story is slick and lively, and Tom Parker is a glib and enthusiastic reader. He portrays the motley cast of characters convincingly and seems to enjoy narrating the story. This is an entertaining listening experience with no pretensions to great art. D.L.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrating the WW2 homefront Feb. 3 2013
By pulperfan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kaminsky wrote excellent mysteries but his Toby Peters series emphasized fun instead of the drama of his other series. No one enjoyed getting beat up, shot at, confused and pushed around more than Toby Peters. He always eventually figures things out while mentioning every brand name that the 1940's sported and listening to all the popular radio shows. His characters are always a mix of well known personalities and kooky, kinky, offbeat Californians. All this happened before I was born. Reading these makes me think I missed something great.
4.0 out of 5 stars Quick fun read, easy to zone out on. May 24 2016
