Hello, Transcriber is an intriguing thriller about a woman named Hazel Greenlee who lives in Wisconsin. Hazel and her husband, Tommy move to Black Harbor which is several cities south of where they came from and Hazel gets a job as a police transcriber. The storyline moves along quite quickly as Hazel becomes involved in a current case that involves her neighbor Sam. Wanting to help and having a crush on the lead officer, Nikolai Kole, Hazel volunteers to help Kole with the case.

Hazel is a bit of a lost soul. Her sister, Elle, is the star of a radio show and is getting married soon and Hazel’s relationship with Tommy seems to be her trying to avoid having sex with him since he is drunk a lot of the time. Hazel is described as being very beautiful so it’s not surprising when she finds herself attracted to Kole. There are a few twists and turns in the plot but the story sucks the reader in with all of the interesting characters and the haunting feel of the town of Black Harbor in general. This book is a fantastic read. Fans of suspense and thriller will want to pick a copy up right away.
