Format: Paperback
I loved this novel! Victor is one of those mystery novel detectives that you start to feel is like an old friend, or a friend you'd like to have. The suspense is excellent, and the mystery has just enough twists to keep you guessing, while at the same time proceeding in a way that feels logical and realistic. I’d like to add that I grew up in Los Angeles, and Alvarez does a great job capturing feeling of the parts of LA in which the story is set.

I’m hoping this is not the last we’ll see of Victor Espinoza; he’s the kind of detective a great series could be built around.

If you have ever lived in Los Angeles, and moved on in your life to other climes, this little story of murder, mayhem, and the black-shirted LAPD, will make you feel right at home, and most of the events and circumstances in which they occurred will seem very ordinary and just like another of those days you spent in La La Land. But if you have never lived here for any period of time, you may find the whole thing just too bazaar and too fantastic, but take it from me this story is as ordinary in this land of make believe as the rising of the sun and its setting. For those reasons, and no matter where you have ever lived, you will find that Alvarez has caught the essence of the place. And for men(sorry ladies, chick lit it ain't), what man, married or not, hasn't felt his significant other just doesn't understand him? After all, he only had to impersonate a high school student, bust a drug ring, then learn how to dress and act like a woman! Poor Victor, no matter what he does, he feels he just can't make his woman happy! The story, from the land of the valley girls, the San Fernando Valley, has it all. The pages are filled with real people, somehow getting things done. This is a very fun read, and the humor is a salve for the more shocking events that are part of Victor Espinoza's daily work.

This is a fast paced, thoroughly engrossing page turner of a murder/detective story. I couldn't put it down and found the "new" detective very likable, capable and believable all at the same time.......I am a fast reader who often "skims" when details, and
explanations become redundant. Not so in this book!! Just enough detail to hang you on the edge of your seat but not to lose you in boring, unnecessary words just to tally up an authors word count in his/her book. Great job and I can't wait for the next book in
the continuing saga and next case of my new favorite detective.

This book was beyond engaging! I devoured it in 24 hours. It's the perfect story, a little romantic, suspenseful, a lot of tension. The cultural elements of trans/cross dressing/gay is an untapped area for fiction. Characters were amusing and vivid. The main character's voice made it impossible to not love him. This style reminds me a bit of one of my favorite pop fiction writers, Stephen Cannell, who wrote a series that includes the book, On the Grind. I'd like to read another book about Vic.

For me this was a page-turner because I liked Victor the cop. I also liked his girlfriend. She had spunk and a little kinky about wearing dresses. The ending is great. I hope author Alvarez is doing another book with these characters. It's a fast and satisfying read.

First, as a Los Angeles native, I love books that grab the taste of the "real" LA. So Dressed to Kill was a hit! Super fun and it kept me up too late at night, wanting to read the next chapter.

First time, First Rate

Forget the typical big scary uniformed LAPD, or the rumpled brown suited LA Detective. Officer Victor Espinoza is slight, smart, and scrambling to keep it all together – his girl friend, his promotion, his wardrobe and his life. Anyone who knows the San Fernando Valley has plenty of landmarks to identify with but this fun, fast-paced crime story could be set in any town that has heat, grit, a seedy side - and a few gents in stilettos and falsies. Charles Alvarez gives us a first rate, first novel that keeps us guessing with real details, humor, and a few scattered clues that just might help us figure out who the bad guys are before it’s too late. And isn’t that why we read murder and mayhem novels anyway! Hopefully this isn’t the last we will hear from Mr. Alvarez and his Victor.

Format: Paperback
The prize: Put his cop's uniform in mothballs and finally start carrying a detective's badge.

The rules: Trust no one, shave your legs and wear a dress.

The locale: The city of the World Champion Dodgers!

His tools: High heels and something called a gaff "also available on Amazon!"

His opponent: A brutal serial killer preying on the Velvet Glove's cross-dressing customers.

The game: Can Victor catch the killer while keeping his cross-dressing high jinks secret from both his girlfriend and partner?
