Kurzbeschreibung

LEGWORK is the debut novel in Katy Munger's hilarious and acclaimed Casey Jones Mystery series. Casey is a big, bad bottled blonde who takes no prisoners as she delves into cases for those who are marginalized on the outskirts of society. Set in North Carolina and the surrounding states, LEGWORK features a colorful cast, solid plot and writing that is both laugh out funny and very moving at times.

Autorenkommentar

Let's all lighten up a little, shall we?
Legwork introduces Casey Jones, an aggressive, smart ass female detective from the deep South. Yes, there are lots of "assertive" female protagonists hitting the book stores these days, but most of them leave me scatching my head and thinking "That's assertive? I'll show you assertive!". Which, ahem, I believe Casey does. My goal in writing the Casey Jones books is to provide a very funny, entertaining read without sacrificing a good mystery and while geting in a few good licks at the more pompous among us. I'll let you decide if I succeeded. I try to avoid Southern cliches in my books and give you a realistic peek at the modern South and the motley crew that now occupies it. Legwork has gotten great reviews which, for some mysterious reason, do not appear on this website. And on that note, all the talk about bad language and references to sex in the book is an exaggeration, I'm far more foul in person. Drop me an e-mail when you're done and keep an eye out for "Out Of Time", due in August of 1998 from Avon Books. -Katy Munger

5.0 von 5 Sternen Glad I stumbled across this one! 20. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
What I want to know is why I had to discover Casey Jones by accident. Think Kinsey Millhone's sassy southern cousin...or Judge Deborah Knott with an attitude...and I can't understand why she isn't as famous. She's hilarious and effective, and I look forward to reading more of her adventures!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Casey is one of the "baddest"! 11. Oktober 2004
Von Wombatsbooks VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
I happened upon the Casey-Jones-Mystery by chance and once I had started reading, I was engrossed in the characters: Casey is a bigger, „juicier", saucier Stephanie Plum with hints of Savannah Reid and a blend of Kinsey Milhone. Munger' s characters are really well drawn and that alone makes "Legwork" very well worth the read.
The plot lacks a bit in my opinion, however. The killer could be figured out quite easily in fact. Since "Legwork" is only the first in this series, I am quite hopeful, that the follow-ups will be fully-fledged five-star-reads!
Result: If you are looking for a funny, witty, tough and grown up female sleuth who is somewhat obsessed with getting laid, Casey Jones is *the* one you are looking for!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Casey Jones is Fantastic!! 26. August 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
We finally have a female PI with savy and plenty of sass. Casey is a fantastic character to really get to know and so are her friends! It's got wit galore and a great read from beginning to end. Her characters are priceless along with her wonderful way with words. I've read them all and can't wait for number 4 next June! Way to go Katy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally! A heroine for all of us! 18. November 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Katy Munger's books are wonderful -- Craftily-plotted mysteries combined with a realistic, feisty heroine. Casey is overweight, impulsive, hilarious, and lovable. She has the ability to see right through a man (stopping to admire whatever she chooses...) and to stir up as much trouble as she solves. MORE PLEASE!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sweaty, Saucy, Steely, Suspensful! 13. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
A northerner and newcomer to the south this book was a hilarious introduction to some class culture in my new home. The heroine is sweaty, saucy, and steely; a bright woman of a certain age and disposition who, after some hard knocks falls into a life for which she is particularly well suited. She is the legs, eyes, and brains for a mountain of slough with a P.I.'s license, (unattinable for her). I often found myself laughing out loud. It unfolds handily, murder, politics, passion. The author takes a nice chunky bite out of the hides of local developers and people for whom appearences are everything. One of my favorite scenes involves the garden club, our heroine, and chicken salad sandwiches. I look forward to the next offering in this series.

Katy Munger is a great writer! Casey Jones and the other characters are so believable. Casey is a smart, funny, wisecracking woman. As soon as I finished this Casey Jones mystery, I was ready for more. In fact, I e-mailed Ms. Munger looking for her next book, which is something I've never done before - and I'm an avid reader. (It will be out soon!) This is a must read for mystery fans. If you are not a mystery fan yet, Legwork is a great place to start.
