Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

In the bleak wasteland of the Nevada desert, not far from the sparkling, twenty-four-hour neon of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, the body of a once-beautiful showgirl is discovered, horribly mauled and mutilated. It is a horrendous crime, shocking in its brutality, excessive even for a city celebrated for its excess.

Seasoned police veteran and Vegas native Detective Sergeant Romulus Poe has seen his fair share of depravity in this mecca of glitz and vice. But there is something about this unfortunate young woman's death--and a similar murder that is to follow soon after--that harkens back to an unsolved slaying and so-called suicide a quarter century ago. The grim similarities--along with some frightening new possibilities--are leading Poe into a night world of dark shadows best left unilluminated and pulling the inquisitive policeman toward secrets from a strange and sordid past that could destroy those closest to him, and drag him over the edge.

About the author

Biography of Kellerman, Faye

Best selling author Faye Kellerman was born in St. Louis in 1952 and grew up in California. She attended UCLA where she earned a B.A. in mathematics in 1974. Kellerman graduated from dental school but decided to become a writer after being inspired by the success of her husband, Jonathan Kellerman. Her first novel, The Ritual Bath, introduced the popular series featuring Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus. It won the 1987 Macavity Award for Best First Mystery. Kellerman has been a member of the board of the Southern California Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1998-06-15)

Best-selling author Kellerman turns to the gritty underside of Las Vegas for her latest venture into crime fiction. Moon Music marks the debut of Detective Sergeant Romulus Poe, in charge of investigating the gruesome death of a showgirl turned hooker. The case reminds Poe of a brutal, unsolved murder 25 years in his own past and brings up his unresolved feelings for his partner's troubled wife. When a second, similarly mutilated body is found, Poe and his team must uncover the truth, even if it involves confronting a powerful, corrupt casino owner.

Kellerman's characters have complex interrelationships that often seem more important than the murder investigation itself. Perhaps not as compelling or appealing as her Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus series (Prayers for the Dead, LJ 8/96) but still a safe bet for most public libraries.

Review by Library Journal (1998-04-15)

Leaving behind popular (and burned-out?) PIs Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus, best-selling author Kellerman visits Las Vegas for the ugly death of a showgirl, weaving in Native American mysticism and medieval legends along the way.
