The fourth DI Christy Kennedy mystery
Take two musicians:
…Sean Green, a gifted Irish songwriter and talented musician, but with a voice that makes Tiny Tim sound like Otis Redding
…and Wilko Robertson, about as soulful a singer as a Scotsman can be. They worked together in Circles, a band in the 1970s, but fame elluded them.
Back together for a gig at Dingwalls Dancehall in Camden Town, this is meant to be the start of a successful come-back tour. But after taking a break from the show, Wilko is found dead in his locked dressing room. Then another body shows up – in another room that’s locked from the inside. Pretty soon Camden Town’s very own Detective Inspector Christy Kennedy is faced with two locked room mysteries and a host of suspects. And when he’s elbow deep in bodies, Kennedy’s partner, ann rea (always lower case), springs a few surprises of her own.
