Overview

FROM THE ESSENTIAL RAYMOND BENSON COLLECTION

Shamus Award Nominee for Best Paperback Original P.I. Novel of 2009 by the Private Eye Writers of America!

From Raymond Benson, author of sixteen novels, including six James Bond 007 novels, comes this second original mystery/thriller set in the world of rock ‘n’ roll.

Spike Berenger is back in another “Rock ‘n’ Roll Hit” by award winning, internationally best-selling author Raymond Benson!

Musicians in progressive rock bands in Chicago are being murdered—one by one. The local police have no clues, but several of the musicians who fear they’re next on the hit list claim that the killer is a ghost from the past—a woman who was reported missing and presumed dead for over thirty years!

The Rockin’ Security team is called into action. Spike and his partner, Suzanne, travel to Chicago to investigate the case, only to find that no one wants to talk. As Spike digs deeper, he begins to unearth a lode of deadly secrets involving sex, psychedelic drugs, and, of course, rock ‘n’ roll.

And it isn’t long before the private detective becomes a pawn in a very dangerous game.

    Fast Paced Thriller

    Raymond Benson's Dark Side of the Morgue is a fast paced thriller set in the underground music world of Chicago. So fast paced that I read it in one sitting. Private Investigator Spike Berenger is hired to track down who is killing musicians connected to some old progressive rock band. Soon he is taking the case on his own, determined to catch the killer. Is she really a ghost from the past? I enjoyed the book until I got towards the end. By then, I had an idea what was going on and I was let down somewhat. With that said, the book is enjoyable, especially if you are into the rock music scene. Take it with you to the beach, on a plane, or read it while lying in your hammock.
