Their honeymoon gets sidetracked when legendary director Sir Cedric Parmeley enters his 25-year-old rockumentary Playing in the Dark into competition at the Cannes Film Festival, and asks Blacklight to perform a free show at Frejus, near Cannes, to support it.
But the film Parmeley screens the night before the Festival opens is not the film the band approved. In that ninety minutes of footage is evidence of an old hate crime, the only kind for which there's no statute of limitations.
The men who perpetrated that crime have been hiding in plain sight in beautiful Provence. Their leader is a revenant from Homicide Lieutenant Patrick Ormand's past. And Ormand will stop at nothing to take him down--even if it means putting the band in the crosshairs of a sniper's scope on the red carpet at Cannes.

I love Deborah Gravien's JP Kincaid series. Technically they're mysteries and there will be a dead body around (generally of someone who deserves what he gets), but the stories are deeply psychological and powerfully romantic as JP and Bree, the love of his life, work their way through years of accumulated issues and habits. But most of all, the series is about the joy and passion of creating music. Grabien makes the musicians' world come intensely alive like no other writer I've read. In London Calling, we go from a honeymoon in Londo to the Cannes Film Festival to the danger generated by a long ago hate crime. I recommend reading the series in order.
