Created by Robert S. Levinson
JOSH WAINWRIGHT is an ex-LAPD officer obsessed with proving that eccentric music producerMr. Magic is responsible for the death of his wife, singer Katie Sunshine, years ago.
But as the current co-owner of International Celebrity Services, a security service for the rich and famous, he's in a good position to do something about it in In the Key of Death, the 2008 novel. But things become decidedly more perverse and twisted when Mr. Magic becomes a suspect in the death of another young woman and hires Josh to clear him, fully aware Josh would rather string him up.
I tell ya, Mr. Magic makes Phil Spector look like John Boy Walton.
Levinson, who worked for years in the music industry, gets right under the skin of it and roots around with glee, making this one of the few books I can recall that gets ther rock'n'roll biz right.
