More About the Author
I have two mystery series in the works -- one featuring the rock 'n' roll detective Clancy Parker and the other starring the erotic bakery entrepreneur Muriel Kovacs. All three novels in the Clancy Parker series are out now. The first novel in the Muriel Kovacs series, Missionary Position, made me a quarterfinalist in the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards. You'll be seeing that novel this year.

Before Clancy can close in on the culprit, the show's producer is found floating face-down in the mansion's swimming pool. Unfortunately for Clancy, he's the only person who knew she was more than just another kooky contestant vying for Patrick's attention. It's up to her to track down the killer before she's eliminated..permanently.
*My thoughts: This book is fan-freaking-tastic! I loved "Heavy Mental," but Morse really comes into her own in "Exile". The writing is witty, the story flows flawlessly, and the character development is spot-on. There's a little bit of something for everyone in this book: a hot romance between Patrick and Clancy (and a few kisses for the other contestants, much to Clancy's chagrin), comedy, colorful characters, and a great mystery.
Not to mention the great rock n' roll references. What other book has music trivia questions about Pearl Jam and Jane's Addiction?
I actually found myself so absorbed in this book that I lost track of time as I read it-I only read while doing cardio at the gym, and let's just say that I burned a couple hundred extra calories every time I started a new chapter. I'm not sure what got my heart rate up more-the elliptical or the plot twists and action scenes in "Exile on Slain Street"!
If you're a rock music fan, mystery fan, and lover of a good story, I cannot recommend this book enough.
I liked this novel because the plot is refreshing and handled well by PJ Morse. The main character, Katherine, is a down-to-earth type whose private thoughts had me laughing aloud. If the contestants of these "reality" shows are as shown in this book, it gives a whole new perspective on the protagonists we see lauded in our lounge rooms.
The book is well written and the plot exciting, with twists and turns all the way.
The story opens on Clancy finding a dead body floating in a pool on the set of a reality tv dating show, for the heart of rock star Patrick Price. Patrick has a stalker and Clancy has been hired to protect him and find the stalker. But how can you tell the difference between a stalker and reality show contestants specifically picked for their drama potential? The answer is you can't. Which is why she is undercover on the show as one of the contestants. The dead body she finds? The producer of the show and the man who hired her. Now that the stalker has graduated to murderer, Clancy will have to find the stalker/murderer, protect Patrick and keep from getting killer herself, all the while working hard to remind herself that Patrick's a client and NOT a real love interest. You know, just another day in the life of a rock'n roll PI.
When I looked back at this book, it all came flooding back. Exactly how much I enjoyed the story. As we are all aware, sometimes a sequel just doesn't measure up to the first. This was not the case here. This book took all the best parts from the first book and took them to the next level. Clancy's friends show up again, some playing the part of her family on the show, others to offer help and assistance where ever they could. They provide some much needed comic relief and keep the emotional tone of the book balanced. I was pleasantly surprised that the stalker/murderer wasn't who I thought it was along with some other interesting revelations. I love it when an author can keep me guessing right to the very end. Even with some time and distance this ranks as a 4 star read.
The premise of this book, a reality TV show which is a rock star version of "The Bachelor," seems so real I almost looked for it to see when the next season started! Lots of great lines, hilarious scenarios and the requisite mystery to solve. I truly didn't know who'd done it until the very end!
I really hope there is a third!
