Georgie Shaw’s boss, Maximillian “Max” Marley, calls her at the crack of dawn worried that his friend, Dave Rollins, has gone missing or worse. Until his recent retirement, Dave, who’s in his seventies and is a master musician and composer, was the Chief Creative Officer of Marvelous Marley World’s Music Group. Lost Hills’ police officers responded to a noise complaint and found the front door unlocked, the house in total disarray, and no sign of Dave. They thought the home might have been ransacked but since there was no blood, they wouldn’t issue an APB even though Max demanded that they did. After hearing Georgie’s side of the conversation, Detective Jack Wheeler, her new husband, immediately got on the phone with the Lost Hills/Malibu Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to see if they would tell him anything since Malibu is out of his jurisdiction. Georgie and Jack had seen Dave the night before at a gala honoring the award winning maestro’s career and retirement. Dave had seemed fine and didn’t mention ant travel plans. Max demands Georgie and Jack immediately go to Dave’s house to meet with Dave’s assistant, Pat Dolan, and the responding police officers. Jack assured Max they were heading to Dave’s house and then quietly told Georgie that a body had been found on the rocks below Dave’s Malibu Cliffs estate. Dave was divorced, with two grown children who adored him, an ex-wife who loved his money, and was known to be a womanizer. The lead investigator, Sgt. Hank Bardot, enlisted Jack and Georgie’s help in questioning persons of interest and Georgie had her competent Executive Assistant, Carol Ripley, do some snooping into the maestro’s past and other people she was interested in learning more about. Both Georgie and Jack are compulsive when it comes to gathering facts and resolving crimes and are determined to identify the maestro’s killer, no matter who it is.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
I have to say that I have been reading The Murder of the Maestro, along with the other books in the Georgie Shaw Mysteries, beginning with the first book, and I have to admit that each book can be read as a stand alone or as part of the series. I wanted to get to know each character and the their stories so I know what to expect, but it is not necessary. Anna Celeste Burke covers all of these bases in each of her books, and with each one I read, I discover something new, and I am then wished away to Marvelous Marley World! It is another wonderful read, written by a very talented and fun author! But don't just take my word for it! Get on the Georgie Shaw train today!
Now I leave you with a quote from Georgie, "Where words fail, music speaks." I
Marvelous Marley World’s legendary maestro is murdered.
In good spirits at a gala marking his retirement, Dave Rollins disappears later that night. His beautiful home overlooking the Pacific Ocean is trashed—not just searched, but vandalized, too. The maestro’s old friend and boss, Max Marley, wants answers! At the crack of dawn, Max calls Georgie Shaw and Detective Jack Wheeler distraught, demanding that they help solve the mystery of the missing maestro. When Dave Rollins’ body is found on the rocks below his Malibu cliffside estate, Georgie and Jack are pulled into another whodunit. Who killed Dave Rollins? Did a secret from the maestro's youth catch up with him decades later? Or did a scorned woman, a jealous rival, a disturbed fan or someone else murder the maestro?
