Evan Horne is playing piano at the Fashion Show Mall as he recovers from an injury to his right hand. His old friend Ace Buffington asks him to look for a few answers about the mysterious death of tenor sax player Wardell Gray. Horne doesn’t realize that asking a few questions about this decades old murder can bring a lot of heat, including a confrontation with a mobster.
Praise for DEATH OF A TENOR MAN:
“The Vegas setting is nicely realized, and the use of the real-life Gray case proves fascinating, especially to jazz fans, who will also appreciate the author’s musings on the jazz player’s art.” —Booklist
