This is the second novel in the series about a private investigator (ok, she is faking it, but..) that finds herself involved in a serious case.

Casey Jones is hired by a family clan (women) to try and do the impossible. The job? Remove Gail Honeycutt from death row within a month. Casey is flummoxed but takes the case when she senses that Gail is, indeed, not guilty.

This book was filled with action, murdered victims, police force inquiries, and more. The book to me, however, would have been impr

Katy was a new author to me. I really enjoyed this book. She reminds me a little of Fanny Flagg because she has a slow, southern detail way of painting a scene. Hence, I could "see" everything she was trying to tell me. Casey Jones, the private investigator, was fabulous. She's gritty, funny and sometimes her confidence wavers, which makes her a very believable character. A complicated mystery involving dead police officers, a judge and a woman at the end of the line on death row. Every characte ...more
On balance, the main character, Casey Jones, an unlicensed private eye with a somewhat shady past, was easy to like if more than bit unbelievable. The basic story line is that Casey has been approached by the family of a woman on death row in law and order North Carolina and there's only a month until her execution date. It comes down fairly neutral on the death penalty itself. Some of the prose contained within the book was enjoyable, especially since I've lived in North Carolina in the past.

I really enjoyed this. I'm a big fan of Janet Evanovich and Katy's writing style was similar. She had the same type of humor and I grew fond of the characters as If formed a picture of what they looked like in my head. Found myself smiling often. I've have only read this one book by the author but would certainly like to read another.
Vfields used to be Happy!
I enjoyed the romp Katy Munger took me on. Sometimes its nice to just chill and flow with the mystery. Casey Jones is 160lbs of woman, trying to get the job done even if "they" tell her to Fugedaboutit! I wish this series had been better received because I feel Munger has more to say!
I wasn't very impressed by this book, though I thought it was better than the first book in the series. The main character is interesting & likeable but the whole storyline feels formulaic. Yes, I know mystery is a formula of sorts, but I guess I expect a little more creativity.

I can't remember how I first came across Katy Munger's series, but I always thought she deserved better covers and better recognition. She's very funny, but the humor is never at the expense of real warmth for her characters. Lovely funny addictive chick detective stories.

The second Casey Jones mystery. I guess I really liked the first, since I read this one a month later. Can't remember details (it was more than ten years ago) but I noted that I "enjoyed it a lot."

fun READ and well-drawn characters, but munger needs a better editor. At the end I was skipping whole paragraghs because it was so wordy. fun, nonetheless.
