Peter O’Browne, managing director of Camden Town Records, is missing. Although up to his neck in other cases, Detective Inspector Christy Kennedy investigates, plumbing the hidden depths of the music industry, and turning up chart-rigging scams, blackmail and worse…
This is a detective story with a difference. Part whodunnit, part howdunnit and part love story, it features a unique method of murder, a plot with more twists and turns than the road from Kingsmarkham to St Mary Mead, and characters that practically explode off the page.
Paul Charles is one of Europe’s best known music promoters and agents. In this, his stunning début, he reveals himself as a master of the crime novel.

“Paul Charles reveals himself as a master of the crime novel… Judging by the cracking good read of this, his début effort, he has a lot to offer readers eager not only for a fast-moving, intelligent plot, but also in terms of gaining an insight into the heady, wheeling-dealing world of the record industry.” – The Big Issues
“A detective story with a difference and difficult to put down. Very readable.” – The Ulster Star
