Suspicious Mimes by Virginia Brown, Book #3 in the Blue Suede Memphis series
Our favorite part-time tour guide and amateur detective Harley Jean Davidson tries to stay out of trouble. Really, she does, but trouble seems to find her anyway. This time the trouble is in the form of a serial killer of Elvis impersonators.
Like the other 2 books in this series, my director Drew Commins provided all of the voices for the male characters. Tootsie, the transvestite receptionist, has a much bigger role in this book than the previous ones.
Of the 3 books, I think I liked this one best. It introduces a new character, 86-year-old Nana McMullen. Let me tell you, is she ever a character! Some of her lines really cracked me up!
As a narrator, I don’t want to have all of the fun. I want to tell the story so that the listener is in on all of the jokes and gets to have that same laugh. Many times, we had to back up in the recording so I could re-do the line in a more deadpan manner.
