Litfuse Review: Murder Mezzo Forte by:Donn Taylor
About the Book:
He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations, she a headstrong professor of religion, a converted Wiccan. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and they're probably guilty of her murder. A leak of the alleged scandal to the college administration threatens their jobs. Their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees. And it puts their lives in danger from a mysterious criminal organization that seems to have tentacles everywhere.
Can this ill-matched pair's stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched forces of the police, the college's incompetent administration, and that powerful but unseen criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse . . .
Murder mysteries are the best thing to read sitting poolside. They engage you enough for you to get your tan on and it gives you something to do so that you won't fall asleep which could prove disastrous under the suns rays. Murder Mezzo Forte, is a great mystery story full of wit and character. The personality the author has given the characters really shows through. The writing is witty and fun which makes the story engaging and gives the story line body and makes it vivid and strong. This is a great sequel to Rhapsody in Red. The author is very popular among readers and I can see why.
The very ill matched pair is at it again when there is a murder very close to home. They have to get down to the bottom of it before any one else gets hurt. They can't afford to trust anyone or anything at this point in the mystery. Love the author and can't wait for the next one!
