The Vinyl Detective Mysteries - Written in Dead Wax
He is a record collector — a connoisseur of vinyl, hunting out rare and elusive LPs. His business card describes him as the “Vinyl Detective” and some people take this more literally than others.
Like the beautiful, mysterious woman who wants to pay him a large sum of money to find a priceless lost recording — on behalf of an extremely wealthy (and rather sinister) shadowy client.
Given that he’s just about to run out of cat biscuits, this gets our hero’s full attention. So begins a painful and dangerous odyssey in search of the rarest jazz record of them all.
I have never heard of this author but I always enjoy discovering new ones. So glad I did with this author and book. I have listened to a few records from my parents. They owned a record player and it was from my parents that I was introduced to music and developed my love for some of the greats from artists like the Dobbie Brothers, Allman Brothers, and Alabama to name a few. However this does not mean I could relate to the love that the Vinyl Detective had as a connoisseur. Yet the more that I felt his love for music and finding that rare find I got more excited as well. He and Miss Warren were kind of like the Odd couple but they just worked well together and kept things entertaining. I appreciate music more after reading this book. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
Warning as the "f" word is used some in this book but in a tasteful way. Other then the use of the "f" word I would classify this book as a fun, koozy, cozy mystery.
