Book Description HTML

Just as the rock band, Doberman’s Stub, was about to reach a stadium tour status, its leader was brutally murdered when his headphones exploded during a recording session. The widow, who inherits $5 million, is the San Diego Police Department’s number one suspect. She hires Jason Duffy, a 27-year-old PI in his first year of private practice, in spite of his background as a former musician. Jason learns that the victim was also a very skilled contract negotiator, who was in the middle of an acrimonious renegotiation with the record company at the time of his death. He also finds that the record company has a very unhealthy tie to the Russian Mafia.This is the 1st of 5 novels in the Rock & Roll Mystery Series and is its 6th month on Kindle's Top 100 Free Mystery/Crime list.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

RJ McDonnell

RJ McDonnell is the son of a Pennsylvania State Police Detective, who received several decorations for solving complex and high-profile crimes. In addition to a traditional education, RJ also had the benefit of seeing every police detective drama on television and in the movies. His father would frequently critique these stories for believability of characters and police procedures. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree at Penn State University and a Masters at Marywood University. During his college years RJ was a rhythm guitarist and vocalist in two bands. Shortly thereafter, he moved to San Diego where he went to work for a professional writing service. In addition, he wrote a monthly column for the Military Press, and another for a San Diego publication, providing advice to job seekers. In the 90s, RJ got into comedy writing. He wrote for a local San Diego cable television show that had a Saturday Night Live-type format. Over its two seasons on the air, 34 of his skits were produced. Rock & Roll Homicide was the first novel in his Rock & Roll Mystery Series, and remained on three Amazon Kindle Top 100 lists for over three months. The second novel, Rock & Roll Rip-Off, was selected 2010 Mystery/Thriller of the Year by Premier Book Awards. The Concert Killer was released on 9/1/11. RJ wrote and performed on the book’s trailer song, which also served as a prequel to the novel. The 4th novel, The Classic Rockers Reunion with Death, unlike the rest of the series which takes place in San Diego, is based in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where McDonnell was raised. Diamonds, Clubs, and Rock & Roll is set at the undersea lounge of a billionaire resort on La Jolla Cove and was released on 11/10/14.
