Publisher's Summary

L.A. shoe designer Maddie Springer hasn't seen her father since he reportedly ran off to Las Vegas with a showgirl named Lola. So she's shocked when he leaves a desperate plea for help on her answering machine - ending in a loud bang. Gunshot? Car backfire? Never one to leave her curiosity unsatisfied, Maddie straps on her stilettos, and along with her trigger-happy best friend, makes tracks for Sin City in search of her MIA dad. 

Maddie hits the jackpot, all right. She finds not only her dad, but also a handful of aging drag queens, an organized crime ring smuggling fake Prada pumps, and one relentless killer. Plus, it seems the LAPD's sexiest cop is doing a little Vegas moonlighting of his own. 

In a town where odds are everything, Maddie bets it all on her ability to out-step a vicious murderer. She just hopes her gamble pays off...before her own luck runs out.

Critic Reviews

"This amusing whodunit scores big. Maddie's winning return, with her bold comical voice and knack for thinking fast on her strappy slingbacks, will elicit cheers from fans of the growing chick mystery field." (Publishers Weekly)

"Blending romance and humor, Maddie and her madcap friends are an enjoyable treat." (Parkersburg Sentinel)

"Killer in High Heels is ‘packing’ with action, hilarity, danger, almost-sex, and fashion wows and woes. Gemma Halliday gives the reader nothing but pure indulgence and fabulous fun!" (Once Upon a Romance)

Gangsters in Drag in Vegas

Maddie and her strange troop of wackos take Las Vegas and were she real, Vegas wouldn't ever recover.

Totally overblown madcap writing left me in the dust.

This is it for Maddie and I-I thought she and Ramirez were going to actually have successful sex but Maddie freaked out because she had on old panties and hadn't shaved her legs so...no sex. Totally unrealistic, totally juvenile, I'm totally out of here. Bye Maddie...I'm done.

Mental forehead smack! CAN'T READ THESE ANYMORE!!

"Mental forehead smack", "I'm not ashamed to say" that I "soooo" can't read any more of these books!!! It's actually a real shame because these books have so much potential to be fun with a little touch of "who dunnit" but I got to the point when I knew she was going to say "mental forehead smack" and would cringe knowing it was coming. It was incredibly annoying! I'm also curious to know how many times this author used any variation of "to say"... "I'm happy to say", I'm not ashamed to say", "I'm ashamed to say", "I'm embarassed me to say". If it was not at least 50 times in this book, I'd be shocked. And the same goes for the word "soooo". "I am "soooo" not going in there", "Ramirez is going to be "soooo" not happy with me", "this is sooo not working out the way I thought it would".... I think I remember that being a pretty cool saying about 15 years ago and is probably even OK a couple of times in a book but again, it appeared as often as "to say" and "mental forehead smack" and just got to the point of utter annoyance!

I had hoped that book two would have had less of these irritations, because I like the idea of a series of books that I can follow and look forward to buying the next in the series. But with these ones, I could only look forward to them ending. Sorry, just can't buy another.

Just a little bit of fun

What did you like best about Killer in High Heels? What did you like least?

It was not really anything to get excited about. But if you've caught up on all of Evanovich, this will hold you over til her new one comes out.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Not sure, it was just not too original

What three words best describe Caroline Shaffer’s performance?

It was ok

Did Killer in High Heels inspire you to do anything?

Nope

Fun Brain Candy

Fun to listen to when you want to tune out and let your brain relax and not think about anything serious. A little bit fluffy in content, but amusing nonetheless.

Dumb Blonde

I like the writing and character development. However, I just can't take another book with the lead blindly walking into trouble.
