Constance Dunlap is a young woman who in Chapter 1 turns amateur criminal in order to to save her husband from disgrace and imminent arrest. When this sadly doesn't work out exactly as planned, Constance goes on to embrace a new life. More antiheroine than heroine, she uses her wits and new found talents to aid others in avoiding retribution for their crimes always one step ahead of the detective pursuing her. Summary by J. M. Smallheer (6 hr 43 min)

Reviews

Almost Perfect

(5 stars)

A collection of short stories showing a normal housewife who turns into a criminal for her husband, stays criminal for a while longer because she's turned bitter, & then starts to help people she feels deserves it. I kept listening & didn't want it to end. The only negative was that the same detective kept showing up in each story. He wasn't always looking for Constance either. This wouldn't happen even twice in NYC during these types of situations. Still, it's worth 5 stars to me despite this.

Unvarnished crime stories

(5 stars)

Unvarnished crime stories that rival that of today's most sensational headlines. Had the author developed the characters a little, these stories would be truly great. Each tale is about 35-45 mins long. The narrator is flawlessly engaging.
