To be one of the best.
An erudite writer, a very well written mystery. Taught me some things about jazz, the descriptions of the playing with others, how the musicians melded and worked with and counterpointed one another, were fascinating, and so well done.
I was there for those sessions. For an author to take you into any area you know little about, and in this case, entice you to check out the music he mentions, and the musicians, is a skill, and this writer has it. I was back and forth to iTunes.
No alcoholics-marriages-in-the-toilet-kids-on-the-loose, detectives here. That's been overdone by too many others. So tedious.
But not just the music, the mystery itself aces this book.
This writer has found a niche, he explores it, and you go all the way with him. Reading this, I could hardly wait to finish, so I could get to another Evan Horne book.
Learned some things, and was mightily entertained as I did. Does it get any better than that? Nope.

Format: Hardcover
This is the fifth in a series featuring the reluctant detective Evan Horne who is a jazz pianist. He always finds himself involved in the solution of a mystery that concerns a real life musician. Because Bill Moody is a jazz drummer and journalist, he brings a certain authenticity to his stories and if you don't watch out, he may cause you to buy some new CDs. His other books were about Charlie Parker, Wardell Gray, Clifford Brown, and this one is set in Amsterdam where Chet Baker died in 1988 when he either fell or was pushed from a hotel window. Poor Evan, he just had a gig and then he finds himself once again mixed up with the police! I have enjoyed each one of the Evan Horne books, waited for this one for about a year, recommend the series to all musicians and mystery lovers...

Format: Hardcover
After 5 novels hasn't Mr. Moody learned that you just, can't, put, a comma, wherever you want to? And at times, well, a comma is needed. This could be credited to extreme sloppiness and mistakes that editors should notice right away. Like the fact that California is 9, not 8 hours behind Amsterdam. Consecutive chapter headings of Wednesday the 10th and Thursday the 12th (with a mention of Friday the 13th) make me wonder what happened to the 11th day of that month. Mr Baker is referred to as "Mrs" Baker. (What the hell do editors do these days?) And there are probably others that my quick reading or fading memory have missed.
If you have a craving for some Chet Baker (who doesn't/shouldn't?) I would suggest de Valk's bio, or pre-order Gavin's. If you have mystery fix, just buy Elmore Leonard. I am not familiar with the other works of Mr Moody, I like the idea of jazz mysteries but heavily shy away from silly clichés and most of all bad writing. If anything I hope this will turn a few people on to the lovely music of Chet Baker.
