Played to Death: A Scott Drayco Mystery

Crimetime. 2014. 312p. ebk. ISBN 9780990458234. MYS
Crime consultant and pianist Scott Drayco is the sudden owner of an opera house on Virginia's Delmarva Peninsula, a present from a former client. Contracted for a job in the area and looking to sell the property quickly, he reluctantly makes the trip to the small coastal town. His hope for a swift turnaround is ruined when the new client's body is found in the opera house with a "G" carved into his chest. The murder unearths the town's many secrets, and Drayco gets caught up in the drama. Still affected from his previous botched case—a detail that sheds compelling light on his character—he must put his hesitations aside and find a killer.
VERDICT An engaging lead and atmospheric setting make for an ideal travel read. [See "Striking a Cord: SELF-esteem," 1/13/17.]
