Overview

When Lord Pastern Bagott takes up with the hot music of Breezy Bellair and his Boys, his disapproving wife Cecile has more than usual to be unhappy about. The band's devastatingly handsome but roguish accordionist, Carlos Rivera, has taken a rather intense and mutual interest in her precious daughter, Felicite. So when a bit of stage business goes awry and actually kills him, it's lucky that Inspector Roderick Alleyn is in the audience. Now Alleyn must follow a confusing score that features a chorus of family and friends desperate to hide the truth and perhaps shelter a murderer in their midst.

This book is a lot of fun. The characterizations are beautiful, and the plot, which revolves around a wacky English peer, is a hoot. He has now decided he is going to be the drummer of a popular swing band, despite the fact that the band already has a great drummer, along with a lecherous accordian player and a conductor on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Add to the mix the peer's ditzy daughter and arrogant wife and you can only end up with a dead body.
