The first literary rock-&-roll mystery — with live music

From reviewers:
“The music is exhilarating, the romance is hot, and the mystery is challenging.”
“Fast paced, smoothly written, and enjoyable . . . Highly recommended.”

As the daughter of New York detective Archie Goodwin, Cory Thorne reacts to her crumbling marriage by tackling a tough investigation. Twenty years ago, Rind vocalist Mickey Ascher was slaughtered in his Back Bay penthouse. The killer was never identified. Ascher’s guitarist and best friend, Dan Quasi, disappeared. Now Unsolved Mysteries has pounced on the cold case — just when an upscale Boston exchange program is flying Dan Quasi’s new band to Paris.

Why would a former rock-&-roll legend, antiwar ringleader, and murder suspect choose the Eiffel Tower and EuroDisney for his comeback?

Cory’s quest for a scoop in the city where she married Larry Thorne pits the Bostonians’ musical mystery tour against her own search for lost time. But when the nostalgia trip turns deadly, it’s her father’s question Cory has to answer: Who murdered Mickey Ascher?
