内容紹介

A woman plunges ten floors down an atrium and lands on a baby grand piano in the luxurious Rourke Hotel Sydney. The police rule this as a straight case of suicide; but 48-year-old hotel duty manager and wannabe investigator, Mia Ferrari, thinks otherwise.

As Mia sets out to unravel the mysterious death and prove the cops wrong, especially her archenemy, Detective Sergeant Phil Smythe; she comes up against an unsavoury cast of characters who will do anything to shut her up. But with a little help from her friends, Mia will not stop until she unearths the truth.

Mia Ferrari is a "wiseass", older chick with determination and an attitude, and she never takes “no” for an answer.

著者について

Sylvia Massara is a multi-genre author based in Sydney, Australia, who dabbles in wacky love affairs, drama and murder (or all three) over coffee. Sylvia has been writing since her early teens and her work consists of novels and screenplays. As with most authors, Sylvia draws on her varied experience in the sometimes-puzzling tapestry of life. These days, however, Sylvia has resigned from the human race, and she lives both in the animal kingdom, with her kitty cat, Mia, (a much better place to be), and vicariously, through the many characters in her head. Sylvia has a soft spot for older female protagonists with an attitude who are on the cusp of 40 years and beyond. This is seen in her wacky, romantic comedies, and most recently, in her mystery novels. An avid fan of classic black and white Hollywood movies of the 40s including film noir, Sylvia has placed her protagonist, Mia Ferrari, in a contemporary mystery series with a bit of a "film noir" flavour. Mia Ferrari is an older, spunky, smartarse female who works in the international world of hotels. The theme is comedic, sexy, and peppered with that film-noir-hero type of attitude. The stories are fast-paced and set in the modern day world. On a more serious note, Sylvia's work in literary fiction brings forth The Soul Bearers, an inspirational story filled with hope, overcoming fear, loss, betrayal, and discovering the healing power of unconditional love. At present, the novel is under consideration for adaptation into a feature film. For more information please visit Massara's website at: www.sylviamassara.com

Sylvia Massara is a definitely talented author. When you finish the whole book, you will definitely fall in love with Mia (the Main Character). Unlike other detectives or private investigators for most of murder mysteries, Mia is like us but at same time, she is very funny, cheeky and adventurous. So when you read this book, you feel that you are next to Mia.
Even though the book is considered as category of murder mystery, lots of other essences such as love and foods (I have to warn you that you will crave for Italian Food during reading) are in this book.
Because of Sylvia's ama

5つ星のうち 3.0 A Brash and Perky Mystery 2014/4/14
投稿者 Kerry L. Reis - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Mia Ferrari, a duty manager of the Rourke International Hotel in Sydney, Australia, is paged with news that a hotel guest had fallen from the tenth floor within the hotel atrium onto a baby grand piano. Was it a suicide or was something more nefarious behind this woman's death? Mia, who is in the middle of an ugly divorce and still blames the lead police detective in the investigation for her rejection to the police force twenty years earlier, believes the latter and has no problem interjecting her own investigation, regardless of the danger or proper procedure. The mystery is light, but the characterizations are brash, as Mia handles the case and her relationships as if she always has something to prove. A perky little mystery.

Thoroughly enjoyed 'Playing With the Bad Boys'.
Really didn't want to put it down once I'd started. Believable main character and a good supporting cast. Mia Ferrari came across as a strong, independent woman who's still battling with some personal issues, but chooses to rise above them and live in the present. Without wanting to give anything away, I also liked the lack of stereotypical, romantic-style ending one often sees in murder mysteries involving women in lead roles - this feisty investigator is her own woman, and knows it. She doesn't play second-fiddle to anyone... and why should she?
I also liked the fact that there was more than one layer to the story, and that, even when you thought perhaps you had the whole thing worked out, there was still the occasional surprise hiding around a corner here or there.

Seeing another good Australian author getting out there is also very refreshing.

Would heartily recommend this book to anyone.

Not going to recap the story since other reviewers already have...Playing With The Bad Boys is a fun murder mystery involving a sexy if very snoopy hotel manager with frustrated dreams of working on the police force (although I say you're never too old to start, so maybe she should re-apply :) Mia Ferrari doesn't get along with the police chief either, whom she blames for her not being on the force to begin with. And, she had an affair with her boss once a long long time ago in Venice so the "office dynamics", such as they are in a large ritzy hotel in Australia, are, um, a little, um, delicate sometimes. I liked the heroine - a total wiseacre who's pushing fifty and is not afraid to take on a younger man. Who says life ends at forty?!?! It doesn't even get STARTED until fifty!!

I've read a few of Ms. Massara's other books and I can say her storytelling is clearly evolving. The writing is polished and crisp and the main character eminently likeable. I LOVED her sidekick, a retired American cop who is forever being dragged along reluctantly into Mia's schemes. For a first-time murder mystery, this one is a score. And oh, if you're an Italian foodie (meaning you're into Italian food, not a foodie who's Italian) you will looooove the Italian food porn! But most of all, I liked seeing a kick-ass, middle-aged woman as the heroine, someone who doesn't take any crap and who aspires to be more than she is after a nasty divorce. I would like to see more fiction with these sorts of characters!

5つ星のうち 4.0 Chalk one up for women of a certain age!! 2013/11/4

Author Sylvia Massara has successfully produced a book that validates the value of women over forty! She weaves the story around a still sexy, almost 50 year old woman determined to solve a crime and outshine the big boys. We need more stories like this one. Ms. Massara shows the strength and maturity of this woman while recovering from a trauma in her personal life. The story is realistic and exciting, and kept me turning the pages. It was hard to put down. She nailed the title and the cover. A talented and creative author. I've noticed the list of her other books and can't wait to read this author again.
