About this title


“Keith Snyder brings a delightful new voice to the mystery scene. . . . smart and laugh-out-loud funny.”—G. M. Ford, author of Slow Burn

A score to die for. . . .
There’s a heat wave in Pasadena, California. A soul band is playing down on Crenshaw. And a musician named Jason Keltner has put down his latest composition, “Untitled #23," for a real job: spying on Paul Reno, a slacker who might be involved in a big-time cyber scam. For a struggling composer, it seemed like an easy gig—until guys with guns start showing up at Jason’s house, Paul Reno vanishes, and the guest of honor at a party makes his exit wearing a toe tag. And on the road strewn with seedy nightclubs, bad hotels, and friends gone wrong, Jason won’t slow down until he unravels the truth: about Paul Reno, one strange little computer device, and a gig that paid good money—because the score was murder.

“Constantly fascinating . . . falling-down funny.”—The Plain Dealer


An edgy thriller that moves from the underground music scene of southern California to the high-tech world of Silicon Valley, Keith Snyder's latest is a return trip with Jason Keltner, a starving artist and composer of electronic music who's drawn into a world where reality is a construct that depends on the hardware that creates it. When multimedia guru Huey Benton dies at a party in front of Jason's eyes, it seems at first to be an alcohol-stimulated accident. But things are not always as they appear. Jason begins to suspect that Paul Reno--the computer genius he's been asked to watch--may be involved in the death. All Jason really wants is to finish his latest composition and find a title for it, but when mysterious men start following him and threatening his life, not to mention his somewhat stalled career, he's forced to take a more active role in protecting a piece of computer hardware known as a dongle from people with no compunctions about committing murder to get their hands on it. Coffin's Got the Dead Guy on the Inside is an interesting take on a part of the music world that will be new to many readers. It is written by a multimedia designer, composer, and filmmaker who introduced his unlikely hero in Show Control. --Jane Adams
