From Hollywood€́™s Golden Age to a rock €́™n€́™ roll tragedy, this pair of detective novels from two award-winning maestros of mystery hits all the right notes. From Edgar Award€́“winning author Stuart M. Kaminsky, Dancing in the Dark shines a light on the 1940s Los Angeles dancing scene. Paired with Ellery Queen Award€́“winning author Ed Gorman€́™s €́œgripping, amusing, thoughtful and hugely entertaining€́ The Day the Music Died, these two kooky and delightful mysteries are now available in one volume (Dean Koontz). Dancing in the Dark by Stuart M. Kaminsky: It€́™s going to take some fancy footwork for hard-boiled Hollywood private detective Toby Peters to get Fred Astaire off the hook. After giving a gangster€́™s moll dancing lessons, he tires of her making passes at him and hires the famously discreet private investigator to break the news gently. When a killer cuts in and the moll ends up dead, Peters must take the lead in solving the case ... or face the music himself. The Day the Music Died by Ed Gorman: After his rock €́™n€́™ roll hero, Buddy Holly, dies in a plane crash, young Iowa lawyer and part-time PI Sam McCain just wants to play his records and grieve€́”until the nephew of an eccentric judge kills himself after his trophy wife is murdered. The police see it as a clear-cut murder-suicide, but Sam wants to know more. But diving into this mystery will get dangerous faster than he can say €́œbye, bye, Miss American Pie.€́.
