A powerful new voice on the crime-fiction scene (Foreword Reviews), Corey Lynn Fayman delivers a potent dose of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll with this mystery series featuring recovering guitar player and part-time private eye Rolly Waters, a weird, but welcome, addition to the pantheon of literary PIs.
This award-winning mystery series updates the classic Southern California gumshoe world of Raymond Chandler and Ross McDonald with contemporary technology, new millenium anxieties, and sun-blotted humor. Mystery fans will quickly warm to the affable Rolly, a working-class PI with a poet’s soul man who, though scarred by events of his past, has embraced the present to live one day at a time (Booklist).
Humor and toughness can be felt on every page (Foreword Reviews) where offbeat characters and popular musical lore distinguish these decidedly unusual tales (Publishers Weekly). These music-themed murder mysteries will draw fans of old-fashioned gumshoes, vivid characters, and twisty, layered stories (Booklist).
