Synopsis: Reluctant lawyer, Jamie Quinn, still reeling from the death of her mother, is pulled into a game of deception, jealousy, and vengeance when her cousin, Adam, is wrongfully accused of murder. It's up to Jamie to find the real murderer before it's too late. It doesn't help that the victim is a former rock star with more enemies than friends, or that Adam confessed to a murder he didn't commit.
Review: Jamie Quinn, a family law attorney, has already had a rough year after losing her mother to cancer. When she receives a frantic voicemail from her Aunt Peg saying her cousin Adam has been arrested, she heads down first thing to the police station. Adam suffers from Asperger syndrome, non-violent and musically inclined, but he feels guilty about something. Jamie finds out Adam is accused of murdering his music teacher Spike. Fortunately for Adam, Spike is not a well liked man and there was many a celebration when the news of his passing makes the rounds. Now Jamie needs all the help she can get to prove Adam’s innocence since the district attorney is determined to see Adam go to prison for a long time. DEATH BY DIDGERIDOO is a short novel, the first of the Jamie Quinn mystery series. The book has solid writing and the author has the talent to go far as a fiction writer, but the characters will need to develop more in future books to keep readers’ interest in this series. I enjoyed the mystery, but it seemed a bit ‘easy’ for Jamie and her friends to figure out the truth. DEATH BY DIDGERIDOO will appeal to readers who prefer ‘softer’ mysteries and will whet appetites for the next Jamie Quinn mystery.
