Bruns's laid-back fifth mystery to feature Mick Sever (after 2008's St. Bart's Breakdown) takes the music journalist to Nassau, to cover the resurgence of the legendary Highland Recording Studios, which burned down more than a year earlier and killed someone whose remains were never identified. Owners Jonah and Rita Britt have rebuilt, but the studio's now being targeted by a troublemaker. Rita blames a ghost, possibly that of the unidentified person who died in the fire, for destroying a guitar once owned by singer Sheryl Crow. Sever is also intrigued by the Cadillac a Bahamian matron is offering for sale that supposedly belonged to Elvis Presley. When the manager of Johnny Run, a once red-hot band recording its comeback attempt at Highland, is strangled while sitting in the Cadillac, Sever turns detective. Bruns's twisted, if at times hazy, tale of rock-and-roll revenge will keep readers guessing until the end. (Mar.)

I couldn't get into this book, and forced myself to finish it. Too much seemed contrived and the introduction of the killer 11 pages from the end was too much of a gimmick. Read morePublished on July 23, 2013 by Lois Lyle

Not Bruns best effort but not bad either. Did not develop the story as well as the other Mick Sever books before it.Published on May 29, 2013 by Joe Latore
