Synopsis: 

At the height of their success, the electric folk band Black Dog invited journalists to a desolate island for an infamous publicity stunt: the burning of a million dollars. But the stunt backfired and the band split up, increasing the value of their final album vastly. It’s this album that Tinkler’s got his eye on, and he hires none other than the Vinyl Detective and Nevada to hunt a copy down.

Narrowly avoiding a killing spree, negotiating deranged Black Dog fans, and being pursued by hack celebrity Stinky Stamner and his camera crew, the Vinyl Detective and Nevada discover that perhaps all was not as it seemed on Holy Island – and that in the embers of that fire are clues of a motive for murder…

March 2019 TBR!

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my March TBR and I’ve said this so many times before but I really need to start posting my TBRs earlier! It seems that I always finish books before I’ve posted about wanting to read them and I still haven’t learned from my mistakes! Oh well! This month I’d like to read five books but since I’ve already finished one I might be able to read more, yay! Here’s what I’ve set myself this month:

Now I am miffed I have to wait until May for the last book! I thought it was out sooner than that but after a quick look on Amazon, I have to wait until then. SIGH. I have no idea what to expect from the third one now because this series has been nothing like I was expecting and I’m really intrigued by it all!
