商品描述

Newlywed superstar guitarist JP Kinkaid and his wife, Bree, head off to London for their honeymoon. The trip should be idyllic: take care of personal business in London, record a few songs, relax. Their honeymoon gets sidetracked when legendary director Sir Cedric Parmeley enters his 25-year-old rockumentary Playing in the Dark into competition at the Cannes Film Festival, and asks Blacklight to perform a free show at Frejus, near Cannes, to support it. But the film Parmeley screens the night before the Festival opens is not the film the band approved. In that ninety minutes of footage is evidence of an old hate crime, the only kind for which there's no statute of limitations. The men who perpetrated that crime have been hiding in plain sight in beautiful Provence. Their leader is a revenant from Homicide Lieutenant Patrick Ormand's past. And Ormand will stop at nothing to take him down--even if it means putting the band in the crosshairs of a sniper's scope on the red carpet at Cannes.

平均4.0 星 Another winner 2014年7月27日
评论者 Brett Bydairk - 已在美国亚马逊上发表

Another good entry in this series about an aging rocker afflicted with MS (as is the author). The title seems puzzling, as the action takes place in a small village neat the Cannes Film Festival, until you realize that the murders that occur are somehow tied to a documentary movie the rocker and his world-famous group were part of in London 30 years ago.
Who blew up the aging, senile director on the eve of the Film Festival? What happened to the missing guitar player from another group in the film? Why is this happening?
Good stuff here.

Recommended for mystery and/or rock fans. An excellent addition to the series and an important addition to the main characters backstory. A good mix of character, plot and band relationships.

平均5.0 星 Rock-star life, love and danger in London and Cannes 2010年12月28日
评论者 April - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装
So JP Kinkaid, guitarist in the wildly famous and long-lived rock band Blacklight, has finally married the love of his life, Bree, after the rough times depicted in the first two books in the series. Now they're off for some fun. A honeymoon in London where he can finally show his old home town off to his wife. Of course there are unwelcome shades from the past... JP's first wife and her trashed house that they need to close down. And then there's an old film that featured Blacklight that was buried years ago, but is being brought out again for Cannes by its famous director, Sir Cedric Parmeley, edited to better please the bands that nixed the original version.

A concert by Blacklight in Cannes brings the band together with a '60s era group and a punk band, also featured in the film. The punk band had meant to be the sign of the future when the film was made, but time and drugs and other forms of self-destruction meant that Blacklight had outlived both the other bands (as well as most any others in the film or not). Not that dangerous living hadn't touched Blacklight, as JP's life could illustrate... But he's over that and doesn't want to have it all thrown into his face, or more importantly, into Bree's face. Unfortunately, this is a mystery and the happy honeymoon begins to implode in Cannes when trouble comes as a virtual downpour with fights between bodyguards, racism, insanity, suspicion, arrests, explosions, death and destruction.

The mystery makes for a page-turning suspenseful plot, but the world of an aging, but still head-lining arena-playing band with members who aren't all stupid, shallow stereotypes, make this book and the series much too fun and fascinating to ignore. Dropping names and taking private flights and hiring villas is a small part because it's no big deal to these people (nor should it be). I love that. It's just great fun to get a glimpse into such a life and see the problems and normalcy of it, along with the bits of glitter and glam.

平均5.0 星 The Rock Life, With Humans 2010年7月17日
评论者 Uncle Fox - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装
Speaking as both a writer and a musician, I almost always avoid novels about writers and musicians like the latest flu virus. But Deborah Grabien's latest entry in her series of mysteries centering around the world and the members of an English rock band not only keeps up her usually classy standard, but elevates it a notch. This one's a genuine thriller, at once scarily suspenseful and filled with remarkable insights into both musicians and their fans. Her narrative style never falters, and neither does her precise understanding of the costs and trade-offs of the touring life. And her narrator - the aging, MS-plagued guitarist J.P. Kinkaid - remains as good and painfully honest company as ever. It's best (though not absolutely necessary, by any means) to start at the beginning of the series, with ROCK AND ROLL NEVER FORGETS - but at all events, don't miss this one!

Private jets, custom-designed axes,Cannes Film Festival, Jimmy Choo shoes, and murder! I can't think of any mystery that's more fun than this one! We're drawn in from the very first phone call - not from London, but from the south of France - a frantic cry for help from JP Kinkaid himself. Without spoiling the action, I'll tell you this is my favorite in this series of rock-n-roll mysteries so far. Pick it up, and you won't stop reading until the very last page!
