Publisher's Summary

Congressman Shapply, a former music insider who now leads the crusade against offensive lyrics in rap songs, is attacked and murdered in front of his Washington, D.C., home. His son Nick is arrested and charged with murder. For veteran music journalist Mick Sever, covering this case is personal. Sever, best friend of the accused killer, believes his friend's claims of innocence. With the help of an old flame, Mick must penetrate the bizarre Shapply family (the icy matriarch Alicia, the disturbed daughter Amber, and the religious brother-in-law) to find the truth.

The investigation will take Mick from the halls of the Capitol to the beaches of Barbados. Threatened by unknown assailants and dangers at every turn, Mick becomes the hunted as the killer turns the tables in a stunning climax.

good listen

The Mick Sever character and his music industry friends makes for a good listen. I am enjoying learning about the music industry and looking forward to the third in this series.

Interesting by implausible

This is my first venture with this author and I can wholly commend the way he narrates his story.

However the story, whilst intriguing with a surprising twist at the end, is a little implausible vis-??-vis the main character; the number of times attempts on his life were made and averted, detracted from the story, I felt.

I have one more of his novels to listen to, so I will not pass final judgement until I've heard it.

Get this if it's on sale or any other deal to decide for yourself.
