Overview

Simmering resentment in a small coastal town. A missing manuscript. A dark family secret.

Scott Drayco isn’t a typical detective: a former concert pianist with synesthesia, he turned to law enforcement when a violent attack put an end to his music career.

After Drayco inherits a rundown Opera House in a Virginia seaside town following a particularly brutal case, he just wants to arrange a quick sale for the unwanted “gift” while nursing his battered soul in a peaceful setting near the shore.

Those hopes are shattered when a dead body turns up on the Opera House stage, a mysterious "G" carved into the man's chest. With himself a suspect in the murder, Drayco digs into very old and very dangerous secrets to solve the crime and clear his name.

But first, Drayco must dodge a wary sheriff, hostility over coastal development, and the seductive wife of a town councilman—before the tensions explode into more violence and he becomes the next victim.

“An engaging lead and atmospheric setting make for an ideal travel read.” - Library Journal

A Shamus Award finalist and Named Best Mystery in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
