The trumpet was silenced, but the questions remain

Evan Horne's comeback at the keyboard has brought him to England, where he hopes he can concentrate on his music and not think about crimes. But his friend Ace Buffington, who's led him into trouble before, shows up with a problem: Ace has a contract to write a biography of the late trumpeter Chet Baker, and since Evan's going on to Amsterdam, too...

Chet Baker died on the sidewalk in front of an Amsterdam hotel in 1988; whether he jumped, slipped, or was pushed has never been determined. With his arrival at the hotel, Evan discovers that Ace--who was staying in Chet's room--is missing. The only thing Evan finds is his briefcase and notes. Now he has no choice. To find Ace, Evan will have to dig into the mysterious death of Chet Baker...and that takes him into a world he'd rather not visit.

Bill Moody's background as a musician and his talents as a writer have made the Evan Horne mysteries a cult favorite. Investigating the death of Chet Baker, who has a cult of his own, brings out the best in both the author and his pianist sleuth, Evan Horne.
