While Marsha's career includes teaching at the FBI Academy at Quantico, becoming the youngest Assistant U.S. Attorney in Miami, and going into private legal practice, April's began in stand-up comedy, moved into writing on shows such as Mork & Mindy and Webster, then to producing her own shows like Boy Meets World. Throughout their wildly different professional lives Marsha and April have remained best friends, finally deciding to put their separate talents together to write a show-biz crime novel, MURDER IN ONE TAKE, their debut as a team. Marsha is married with children, and April is single with dogs.

To Amazon, I say shame on you for not monitoring your Kindle version to ensure it is exactly the same as the paperback version from which it's taken. To those readers who got the botched Kindle version, do yourselves a huge favor: insist Amazon give you either a corrected Kindle version or a free paperback version. I can't imagine they'd mind because, after you've read the cleverly crafted, beautifully written original version, you'll find yourself ordering the next two books in this higly entertaining series. They just get better and better.
The plot and storyline were good, though I have no knowledge of the movie/TV industry so don't know if it was accurate or not. Characters were interesting although I did find the transfer of the two main characters from police department to 'private investigator' a bit a stretch of the imagination.
In spite of that, I loved this book. The characters were wonderful and it was very interesting how the authors switched back and forth with the POV for each character. The detail was great and the plot was intriguing.
Very much looking forward to the second book!
The story kept ahead of me as a reader which was a real motivation to keep turning the pages. There was
cogent background built for each character that laid cohesiveness to the twists and turns of plot which
switchbacked through the entertainment industry and investigatory tactics only writers from experience
could possibly capture. Shades of gray abound and questions of justice and morality rise to pique the reader's interest on many levels. These two authors have definitely begun what I hope will become a great collaborative
writing project to produce a series of fine mysteries worthy of lasting interest in the lives of such well-
conceived and creative characters. Sgts. O'Brien and Ervansky will leave you wanted MORE!
Please please fix it, but I'm going to power through and keep reading, cuz I can't put the storyline down! It would be a solid 5 once you get another version out here.
PS I deleted three other books before starting this one, because they were too "fluffy". THIS is good writing. Except ....
