I Love The Sound Of Breaking Glass (Christy Kennedy Book 2) by Paul Charles
Peter O’Browne, managing director of Camden Town Records, is missing. Is his disappearance connected with a mysterious fire that ravages his north London home? And just who was using his credit card in darkest Dorset?
Although up to his neck in other cases, Detective Inspector Christy Kennedy and his team investigate, plumbing the hidden depths of London’s music industry, turning up murder, chart-rigging scams, blackmail and worse. I love The Sound of Breaking Glass is a detective story with a difference.
Part whodunit, part howdunnit and part love story, it features a unique method of murder, a plot with more twists and turns than the road from Kingsmarkham to St Mary Mead.
