The sound and the fury...

On a dark night in Pennsylvania, a jazz legend met his death.  But now, in the heat and light of Las Vegas, the sound of Clifford Brown's soaring trumpet is coming back to life.  Because a man named Evan Horne, who knows all about jazz and pain, is unraveling a puzzle that reaches back forty years to Brown's last hours--and that has already gotten one person killed.

Horne was called to Las Vegas to authenticate some recordings purported to be the lost tapes of Clifford Brown.  But when a murder interrupts his listening session, Horne becomes the key player in a dangerous duet.  Carrying a worn old trumpet that may have belonged to Clifford Brown himself, Horne is pursuing the truth behind an audiotape that may be worth a fortune, may be a hoax, and may be just one haunting melody in a killer's murderous obsession.  .  .  .

Review:

Bill Moody is a jazz drummer who knows his subject inside and out, and his Evan Horne mystery series is packed with jazz trivia. In this book (which, like his earlier Death of a Tenor Man, concerns the death of a real-life jazz great) lost tapes of long-dead trumpet player Clifford Brown turn up in Las Vegas, and a collector is murdered for them. Horne, a former jazz pianist, wants to find the truth about the tapes as well as the killer. His search leads him down various Jazz Alleys and Memory Lanes.

From the Publisher:

In a young jazzman's final notes is the haunting melody of murder....

"When Bill Moody writes about dead jazz musicians, you can hear the blue notes bouncing off the walls."
--The New York Times Book Review

"For a lively trip into the...world of jazz musicians, and murder, there's no better guide than Bill Moody."
--Tony Hillerman

" Moody writes beautifully....a gallery of colorful figures....distinctively pleasurable."
--Publishers Weekly
