Because of the large number of typos and editing errors in this book, I was afraid it wouldn't be very good, but it was. Set in 1965, it's a story about a telephone company employee, working the switchboard, who overhears a name in a conversation from a phone booth. She makes the mistake of using the man's name when she tries to get him to pay for his overtime. This begins a series of events (starting with a murder that no one else believes to be murder) that she tries to get to the bottom of.
I enjoyed this mystery a lot! Anyone ever having worked at a Bell Company will recognize so many of the old rules, laws the management had for the workers -- it was a fun read. With all the mysteries I have read this is the first one about a phone company...a lovely change of pace. There were spots where you just couldn't put the book down! The book was well written, I read it in less than a day and didn't have a clue as to who the killer was until it was over! Look forward to the next one in this series - GREAT read!
"Hey, Jay-Jay..You got that ocean view yet?"
When Trish Malcolm first heard those words through her phone company headset, she had no idea an innocent operator would be run down in cold blood. Now Trish knows she was the intended target...and it's only a matter of time until the killer gets her number.
