9780312985066: Jamaica Blue

Under an intense, blue Jamaica sky, music journalist Mick Sever lands a front row seat to the Next Big Thing - a reggae/rap band known as Derek and The Laments. Derek Lyman, the band's charismatic Rastafarian singer has an unmistakable hold on the audience, and his provocative lyrics work the crowd into a frenzy. But lurking beneath the new stars' promise is a deadly secret-two female fans have been savagely killed after attending Laments' concerts. And everyone begins to wonder if the band is connected to the murders?

The journalist in Sever follows the group to Miami as he hunts for the truth on a trail that will lead him down Florida's coastal highway to Key West and back again. And when another young concertgoer loses her life, Sever finds himself the target of someone who is desperate to keep the Laments' past buried-and...desperate enough to kill again and again.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for Don Bruns's Jamaica Blue

"A bright, fresh, dead-on debut from a great new voice...buy it now and get in on the ground floor with an important new writer."--Lee Child, author of Echo Burning

"A dark mystery with more than a dash of blood, Jamaica Blue goes down easy as a good margarita. This is a damn fine first novel."--William Kent Krueger, Barry and Anthony Award Winning author of Iron Lake

"Well-paced prose, unnerving, high-speed action, and lively subject matter...a solid debut."
--Library Journal

"Bruns' characters are well drawn, his setting right-on. If the Rastafarian faith has always piqued your curiosity, if the many faces of passion intrigue you, if you desire one last escape before the winter blahs set in, you can do no better than to immerse yourself in Jamaica Blue."--Deadly Pleasures

"There are twists within twists, intriguing characters to follow and the book is written with a sense of authority that tells us the author knows his field. Bruns is a new author on the crime fiction scene who knows how to write. He tells a fresh story in a fast, powerful, and engaging manner. The story unfolds with logical, fast paced tempo. The scenes are carefully and accurately described. Jamaica Blue is a fast, enjoyable ride in the steamy island sun."- St. Paul Pioneer Press

"In this compelling, fast paced story, Bruns nails the world of celebrity journalism."--Booklist
