By Raymond Benson
This is the follow –up to A Hard Day’s Death.
Spike Berenger is a Rock n’ roll detective; he himself is a musician and although he doesn’t do as much of it any more he likes to keep his hand in by specializing in protecting musicians and if a little playing comes in so much the better. Spike is lured in once more to solve a mystery a thirty year old mystery which may involve a dead woman but is she dead? There are many winks to musicians of the past .Spike is a normal person in difficult situations and he uses all the information to solve the mystery.
I found myself waiting to find out what Spike would do next. People who read Richard Crais may enjoy this writer’s deeply human characters with their flaws and all.
**** 4out of 5 stars
