Overview

A Sofie Metropolis mystery
Christmas. A kidnapping, Jake Porter and a stray reindeer, oh my! - Sofie’s mother tells her it is the season for miracles, but Sofie’s convinced it’s more of a season for whackos and flashing Santas. After nearly losing a battle with the local strange vampire a month ago, she regrets ever having bitched about boring cheating spouse cases and process serving. She’s ready for a quiet spell doing nothing but finding people’s lost pets. But Sofie’s life will probably never be boring again. After all, kidnapping is never boring. Especially when it’s Sophie who’s being kidnapped.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Near the outset of Carrington's exuberant sixth Sofie Metropolis mystery (after 2011's Love Bites), the oversized brother of George Abramopoulos, "the Greek Donald Trump without the hype," yanks Sofie out of her car near her Astoria, Queens, home. Abramopoulos, it turns out, wants Sophie's help locating his seven-year-old daughter, who on the previous day was snatched outside her school, possibly by his ex-wife. No one has as yet demanded a ransom. Sofie soon finds herself facing the ex-wife's abrasive, shotgun-wielding brother—and later being interrogated by the FBI while bound hand and foot to a chair. Meanwhile, Sophie yearns for sweet, mom-approved baker Dino Antonopoulos, though she's equally drawn to mysterious Australian bounty hunter Jake Porter. Solving the kidnapping case takes a back seat to the disorderly cast of characters, particularly sassy and likable Sofie. If you're on the lookout for a Greek crisis, Sofie's is probably the most entertaining one you'll find. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media. (Oct.)
