The Angel’s Kiss: A Melody Malone Mystery
On some days, New York is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. This was one of the other days…
Melody Malone, owner and sole employee of the Angel Detective Agency, has an unexpected caller. It’s movie star Rock Railton, and he thinks someone is out to kill him. When he mentions the ‘kiss of the Angel’, she takes the case. Angels are Melody’s business…
At the press party for Railton’s latest movie, studio owner Max Kliener invites Melody to the film set of their next blockbuster. He’s obviously spotted her potential, and Melody is flattered when Kliener asks her to become a star. But the cost of fame, she’ll soon discover, is greater than anyone could possibly imagine.
Will Melody be able to escape Kliener’s dastardly plan – before the Angels take Manhattan?
- The Angel’s Kiss: A Melody Malone Mystery was based upon the novel Melody Malone: Private Detective in Old New York Town, written by River Song, in the episode, The Angels Take Manhattan.
- River remarks that her heart beat a little faster when a man claiming to be a doctor approached, but then it turns out to be a man whom she finds unattractive and remarks, “not at all like any Doctor I’d consult. If ‘consult’ is the right word.”
- Bar her extended cameo in Closing Time and archival footage from Forest of the Dead used in Journey’s End, this is the first story River has appeared in that is not credited to Steven Moffat.
- This is the first (real world) novelisation in which River has been featured.
- Julius Grayle is mentioned multiple times. (The Angels Take Manhattan)
- Max Kliener hired Sam Garner to track down River. (The Angels Take Manhattan)
