Immy, the amateur sleuth who really wants to be a professional, is one of a kind. She tries her darndest, while the reader (me) wonders how she can possibly succeed, but cheers her every effort anyway. I could add, the reader (again me) also enjoys her unexpected detours from those detecting chores. Obviously, so does Immy.
I read this three years ago, but I still remember it—that should tell you something about the staying power of a good book.
Kaye George has had numerous short stories published, but Choke, an Agatha nominee, was her first mystery novel. She has since published three more in this series, and three other series as well.
One reviewer said: “Question: If you combined Lucille Ball with Inspector Clouseau, what would you get?
“Answer: Imogene Duckworthy, amateur PI and main character of Kaye George’s mystery, CHOKE.”
That about sums it up. This is Kaye George’s Amazon author page to see what else is there.
