I don't think I will read more from this author. Plausibility not there for me. I can't bring myself to describe the action. First...how does this woman run her agency without paying clients? Never mind. That is the least of it. Overview: case involves locating missing husband/father over period of five years. Staged body replacement death. Mob. Need I say more? Well, there's the underwear. Ha ha.

Angelina is a female PI working in Milwaukee. She stumbles across a clue that leads her back to a cold case from six years ago and Marcy Wagner’s husband. He left his family and cleaned out the bank accounts and the more she digs the more questions than answers happen.

I like Angie as she is tough as nails. She really cares about her clients sometimes too much but that is what makes-her great. Well written and the characters are great as well.

I have not read the other books but it seems that eac

Honor Kills is the third in the fast-paced and exciting Angelina Bonaparte detective series from author Nanci Rathbun, and like its predecessors (Truth Kills and Cash Kills) it involves total immersion in the compelling world and life rhythms of its protgagonist, Angie—a sassy, sexy, Sicilian-American investigator with Family ties.
The tale begins when Angie learns of the recent death of Hank Wagner, a vanished husband she has been tracing for years without turning up a clue. She follows the tra

Well I am in mourning after finishing the third audiobook chronicling the adventures Angelina Bonaparte private Detective, and heroine to this woman of a certain age. Book three starts innocuous enough with Bobbie doing a check on the Marcy Wagner case and finding an obituary in a newspaper. Angelina has been searching for any trace of Hank of over 5 years when he walked out on his wife and family. This case is mentioned in first two books in passing

A private investigator has its pros and cons. You work long hours and sometimes can get so wrapped up in work that it becomes difficult to have a relationship because most of our cases are about infidelity or adultery. You end up doing things that you have never thought you’d ever end up doing, i.e. digging in someone else’s garbage, bird watching, pulling an all-nighter surveillance stakeout, and impersonating others to get the information that you seek for a client. This information can make o ...more

In most mysteries, the pleasure of reading is not only found in the search for the murderer or unraveling a plot puzzle, it is also rooted in the determination of the main character and the complexities of her relationships. In Honor Kills, there is plenty of both, with an extra element of humor to boot. Angelina Bonaparte, the protagonist, is a quick-witted, maverick detective whose work as a private investigator is just as important as her relationship with special agent Wukowski.

This had been a quite complicated case, with a man who disappeared 8 years ago, leaving no trace... now there's an obituary with his name... and his wife and two children demand answers... Lucky for them, Angie doesn't like leaving open cases, so she will do as much as she can to have all the answers this family deserves, even if they are not the ones they are searching... Ready?
I was quite surprised with this book, it is a really complex case where a man that has left his family has appeared de

HONOR KILLS is the third book in the Angelina Bonaparte Mystery series. They should be read in the order or release.

There was a snafu with the audible codes and I didn’t want to miss the third book in this tour, so I purchased it. I’m glad I did.

There is some confusion because at times it is said that Hank has been missing for six years and Angelina has been searching for him for six years. Other times, it is said that it has been sixty months. Sixty months is five years. Once again, my math bra

Appropriate Title For This Book

I’ve been reading mysteries and police procedurals written by new-to-me authors, and I’ve found an author to follow: Nanci Rathbun who writes the PI Angelina Bonaparte mystery series.

Bonaparte is written as a strong protagonist who is intelligent, skilled at her job, caring and emphatic. She is 60ish, dresses stylishly and sports gelled and spiked white hair. Other characters—the good, as well as the not-so good and the bad—are also well-developed and are a pleasu

As much as I love the character of Private Investigator extraordinaire, Angela Bonaparte, this story about Hank Wagner, who left his family and disappeared into thin air, was a bit of a let-down. Indeed, I wasn't totally convinced by the entire plot of the ex-mobster-accountant assuming these various identities to cover his tracks. I was also a bit saddened by the fact that Angela and Det. Wukowski of the Milwaukee P.D. needed to sever their romantic relationship because of Angela's Dad's connec ...more

Once again, Nanci Rathbun has given us a solid mystery. What starts out as trying to track down a missing person turns into so much more! More characters are introduced into Angelina’s circle and I hope to see further developments of these relationships in future books.

I’m happy that Kieran Calland Metts has returned to narrate... I can’t imagine anyone else voicing Angelina Bonaparte.

I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series!

Wow! Author Nanci Rathbun continues to blow me away. The Angelina Bonaparte Mysteries just keeps getting better. Book 3 is my fave thus far.

The mystery revolving around the disappearance of Hank Wagnor is a twisted and devious tale. As Angie digs into his disappearance, funeral notice, and his life, she uncovers a startling secret that puts Hank, his family, and Ang in danger.

By far the most intense installment, narrator Kieren Calland Metts delivers a flawless performance. I l

After emptying his bank account, Wagner left his wife and their three children and disappeared. Angie is determined to find out more about why Wagner left a seemingly happy marriage and disappeared. The investigation leads somewhere that not even Angie expected.

Love the Angelina Bonaparte stories

I've read all 3 of the Angelina Bonaparte books and each of them kept me on the edge of my seat. I am a bit disappointed that Angie and Wukowski had to split but I'm hoping to see them get back together in a future book.

Love the way the story is intertwined with the locales that Wisconsinites can relate too. Easy to follow detective story. You can visualize the family, friend and client relationships. Like that Ms. Bonaparte's business is expanding.

Life is changing at the agency but one thing that will never change is that Angie is a great person who touches lives.
