    This book takes the phrase “the client is always right” way too far. The book brushes past the fact that Bart is a child molester because he’s the big star and it was unsettling.

Let's just say it is the country music band from hell, and murder is inevitable. Written in 1971, when Hee Haw ruled the airwaves, just about every band member reflects the classic characters and acts one found on that show and on the Grand Ole Opry stage - from violent bad boy lead singer, to awe shucks harmonica player to pratfall-addicted comedienne. Both the villain and the victim are pretty obvious from the beginning, but it's still a fun ride.

    Can tell this is the author's first book - just not a very good story and I love Wnglash mysteries. Can tell this is the author's first book - just not a very good story and I love Wnglash mysteries.

    I've read another book by this author and was eager to read one about a cat show, when I realized it was actually part of a series and this one came before it. A little research revealed this book was the first written by the author, so I decided to read it. Blah. I had to keep reminding myself it was her first effort and that it was published in 1971 because I found the characters to be sorely lacking in character, so to speak, given that "The Client" was a pedophile and general bully who also I've read another book by this author and was eager to read one about a cat show, when I realized it was actually part of a series and this one came before it.

I had to keep reminding myself it was her first effort and that it was published in 1971 because I found the characters to be sorely lacking in character, so to speak, given that "The Client" was a pedophile and general bully who also didn't hesitate to hit the women in his life. That wasn't the shocking part--rather that no one around him reprimanded him or see him punished. Quite the opposite. They protected the "golden goose," hence the title. This was frankly too disgusting to allow me to enjoy this story--and make no mistake, this is really a story, not a mystery. I can't say it made me warm to the main characters, other than Penny, the teenage secretary (who actually displayed some backbone), so I'm not sure that bodes well for the remaining books in the series. I'll still read the next book in the series, which had originally interested me, and hope it will be better than this one.

    Douglas Perkins of Perkins & Tate PR Firm is having a hard time working with this Nashville’s Bart and The Cousins who is in England on a road trip. The Black Bart is out of control and abuses everyone. This book has a lot of angry confrontation. A lot of abuse by Black Bart. The tone of the book is a bit darker for me. The stage mother’s untimely death is ruled as an accident. But she exclaims “The bastard pushed me!” Who is that bastard? Doug, the PRO, has to play a PI role trying to find out what Douglas Perkins of Perkins & Tate PR Firm is having a hard time working with this Nashville’s Bart and The Cousins who is in England on a road trip.

    Not bad. A bit over done but liked the main character so will listen to another to give these books a chance

    IMHO Marian Babson is a storyteller, rather than a mystery writer. Depending on your interests this can be either a good or a bad thing.

    2.5 stars, waste of an excellent narrator.

    A rather silly story about a troupe of American country performers that left the US to avoid some legal issues and travelled to England and the PR firm that had the misfortune to represent them.

    Quite nice British mystery about a hillbilly American troupe of singers looking for fame in England. Instead, they find that one of them is a killer. It's been awhile since I've read Marian Babson's mysteries, and now I remember why I was such a fan of hers a couple of decades ago. The humor is sharp and the story is well-written. I really loved this. Quite nice British mystery about a hillbilly American troupe of singers looking for fame in England. Instead, they find that one of them is a killer.
