Publisher's Summary

He is a record collector and a connoisseur of vinyl, hunting out rare and elusive LPs. His business card describes him as the Vinyl Detective, and some people take this more literally than others.

For example, the beautiful, mysterious woman who wants to pay him a large sum of money to find a priceless lost recording on behalf of an extremely wealthy yet shadowy client. And so begins a painful and dangerous odyssey in search of the rarest jazz record of them all....

    "BRILLIANT"

    I loved this book. it's a mad adventure with more twists than a vodka martini.
    I really can't wait for his second offering, coming out in 2017, I'm told.
    The writing is tight, funny and rip-roaring.
    I also loved the narration.
    This was a great experience.
