    A PI inherits an old unused opera house in a small town He goes there to meet a client When he gets there the client is dead murdered The PI stays in the town to solve the murder A few days later the client's wife is murdered Sounds intriguing no? No Was uite boring The PI talks to a lot of people; a lot of people are suspect But I'm really not sure why All the characters are two dimensional and the conversation is wooden There is serious flirtation with the wife of a town councillor that is as hot as a cold plate of spaghetti and goes nowhere By time we get to the reveal I was barely scanning the pages to get through the book Not my cuppa and I like a good murder mystery This did nothing for me

    35 4I downloaded this awhile ago for free as the first in a series and it took me awhile to start it but once I did I was pretty hooked The mystery took place as Scott former FBI now a private detective of sorts was gifted an Opera House outside of Washington DC He can’t decide if he wants to sell or it remodel it and as the mystery unfolds his opera house is at the center The books has a really interesting cast of characters that I look forward to learning about and seeing how the story develops I love when a free book is a good book There are a few missing periods and Scott has a disorder where he sees and hears colors with voices and sounds but it didn’t really play well or into the story Besides that one tiny gripe I really enjoyed it and it kept me guessing till the end I also really liked the bits and pieces of historical information about the musicians and certain musical pieces

    Well written novel with a strong plot line numerous red herrings a surprise ending I didn't see coming I do feel it could have done with a bit tight editing as it was wordy at times A leisurely read in front of a warm fire with coffee as opposed to a page turning thriller Thoroughly enjoyed it look forward to adventures featuring Scott Drako

    The author of this story made me feel as if I had known the characters for a long while It is a good mystery not one that I could figure out ahead of time but it could benefit from some proofreading The character of Darcie is not believable and takes away from the book but the other characters were well developed

    Scott Drayco is a concert pianist Or he was He turned to detecting after his career as a pianist was brutally endedNow after a case that still haunts him he's hoping for a respite and the inheriting of a run down Opera House by the Virginia seaside seems like just the ticket Until on a routine tour of his new property he discovers a dead bodyAs the new guy in town suspicion falls suarely on his shoulders with a Sheriff who is in no hurry to look for other possibilitiesPlayed to Death plays to my love of a good starting over story In Scott Drayco Lawson has created an amiable affable sleuth that draws your sympathy and invests you in his storyA good plot line with good characters combine here to make Played to Death a page turner that will keep you reading till its conclusion Lawson litters the narrative with enough twists that this arm chair sleuth had no clue till the reveal but it was a fitting endingA solid read I'm sure you'll enjoy


  8. John R. Goyer John R. Goyer says:

    I'll up this to 4 stars for the sheer grand opera approach to the lead character and the various background stories of other characters A bit over the top but sympathetic and a good enjoyable murder mystery Mr Drayco started as a piano prodigy with a Carnegie debut at 12 than had a tragic injury and ended up in the FBI where he was almost the director before uitting and becoming a PI No one is ordinary in this book The sheriff of the town is uite a good character as is Scott and I'm planning on trying at least another of this series


  9. Mary Drayer Mary Drayer says:
