On some days, New York is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

This was one of the other days...Melody Malone, owner and sole employee of the Angel Detective Agency, has an unexpected caller.

It's movie star Rock Railton, and he thinks someone is out to kill him.

When he mentions the 'kiss of the Angel', she takes the case.

Angels are Melody's business...At the press party for Railton's latest movie, studio owner Max Kliener invites Melody to the film set of their next blockbuster.

He's obviously spotted her potential, and Melody is flattered when Kliener asks her to become a star.

But the cost of fame, she'll soon discover, is greater than anyone could possibly imagine.

Will Melody be able to escape Kliener's dastardly plan - before the Angels take Manhattan? 2 CDs. 1 hr 43 mins.

Review by

This book was being read and featured during the "Angels Take Manhattan" episode of Dr. Who. It centers around River Song, who is going by Melody Malone, in the late 1930's. It was a cute mystery and I love River. It was a lot different than what I was expecting. The Doctor, Rory and Amy did not feature in this story. This is mostly for Dr. Who fans. If you are not already familiar with River or the Weeping Angels it might be harder to understand.

Let me just say, that I LOVE River. She may be my favorite TV character of all time. So, basically, I had no choice but to love this book. It was sassy and funny and just very River. As much as I enjoy watching episodes with her in them, it was so much fun being inside her head. It was just perfect. Oh, and the fact that it was narrated by Alex Kingston of course made it that much better. :)

This book is a spin-off from the Doctor Who television show narrated by the character River Song in her guise as detective Melody Malone. It's basically a pastiche to Raymond Chandler/Dashiell Hammet with Weeping Angels thrown in. The advantage of the audiobook is listening to Alex Kingston speak for a couple of hours. Other than that it is pretty forgettable.
