The comparison to Harlen comes from having read his early works which did not exhibit the polish his writing does now, as I would not expect polish from a first time writer. Compare to Myron? Yeah. Ridley's got the attitude, he's got the brains (when he's thinking with the big head, not the little head). No, he doesn't have anywhere near as awesome a side kick as Winston Lock-Horne, but maybe further novels will either add a side kick or have Ridley continue on his own. I could easily see his geeky computer pal from high school filling the side kick role.
I did think I'd had the who-dun-it figured out a couple of times so the actual culprit did take me by surprise. I empathized with Ridley but could not for the life of me figure out why he was so hung on Autumn. She is evil through and through, regardless of the reasons she is evil. She must have been a really good lay because as a human being she is severely lacking.
I would like to see Ridley get his MI PI license and moonlight from the High Note as a private detective. I'd also like to see Sheila come back around, and really, the author left it open for Autumn to get her just deserts AND there is the question of where that pesky baby is...
The karaoke bar is an interesting background, with Ridley having love/hate feelings for the place his dead parents willed to him. Supporting characters, Sheila, the executor of his parents' estate, Paul, the surly bartender, and Hal, an aged karaoke enthusiast all show promise of becoming more interesting as the series develops.
I'll be moving on to the next books in this series, and checking out others written by this author.
I won't be looking for the second Ridley Brone mystery.
I just was not impressed with this book and I won't continue to read any others with this guy as the main man...
Happy reading Ya'll...........
Main character is Ridley who had been a PI in California. He inherited his parents karaoke bar in Michigan. His parents were very wealthy and were successful song writers.ridley is single but met up with an old flame. He also had several interesting high school friends. All of this comes into play as he attempts to figure who the culprits are.
You will enjoy this action-packed page turner. Extremely well-written. Kudos to the author.
