Jaded by her years as a cop and her failed marriage, Chicago private eye Marti McClellan typically takes domestic cases: spying on nannies, rooting out hidden assets for divorce settlements, tracking deadbeat dads. But when Rock'n'Roll Hall of Famer Johnny Magick hires Marti to find his missing daughter, she's irresistibly drawn into his quest for self-redemption, seduced by his bedroom eyes -- and finds herself in the cross-hairs of a ruthless killer.

Talk about Life Without Music

Not done with the book yet, but it is a great story. I like the setting it is set in, as I know that part of the country. I will look for more books from this writer.
The title is a quote from Nietzsche, to the effect that life without it is flat, stale, hardly worth living. Life without music is a life without joy, interest-- or love; which is actually the life of Chicago P.I. Marti McClellan has. She is in her late thirties, former cop and divorcee, still a little bitter about her self-centered ex-husband--an embryo lawyer by day and an aspiring musician by night--and somewhat haunted by the some of the cases that she worked as a police officer. She works for lawyers; nothing liable to be violent, heartbreaking and life-shattering. She's had enough of that kind of scene... but what she gets when one of her lawyer clients asks for her discreet help for one of his clients turns out to be exactly that.

The client is one Johnny Magick; semi-retired rock legend, Hall-of-Famer, ex-addict to all sorts of substances. He has a two ex-wives and a dissolute former life, well documented in the tabloids, but a lot of gold records on his wall. He also is still handsome, charismatic, and hoping to redeem his failures with his two daughters; the troubled junkie problem child and the sweet sheltered college student whom he never knew about until she appeared on his doorstep.

"Life Without Music" is an interesting and readable combination of a PI procedural and the tentative romance blossoming between two unlikely people - and in the case of Marti, initially rather unwilling to repeat the disastrous experience of romancing a musician. But she is drawn in by Johnny's charm, and a growing realization that he needs her, and that he genuinely cares for his daughters, and wants to redeem himself in their eyes.

In some ways, the romance seems a little pat, with all the secondary characters (save for one) encouraging of and approving of the Johnny and Marti as a pair. The narrative voice sometimes seems a little flat--a decided contract to the dialogue, which is snappy and informative. During the duller stretches, when Marti is going about her usual investigative and personal routine, the story is slowed down with way too much excruciating and ultimately pointless detail. However, the final twist is very will hidden - but I wish that the eventual villain had been a bit more of a presence, instead of always seeming to be a half-seen cardboard shadow. The final denouement between Marti and the presence stalking her all through the book might then have had a little more impact. Still and all, a worthwhile read, especially for fans of V.I. Warshawsky and Kinsey Milhone.
I usually read 8 to 10 books each month, reading in the evening before I go to bed. Life Without Music is simply a great book! I really wanted to finish it because I wasn't getting any sleep. The characters were rich and realistic, making the reader believe every word they said, as I was drawn into their lives. It would be great if there was a sequel, so I could find out what happens next.
What a horrible book - couldn’t make it past the plagerized quote at the begging- then after a search on the author- turns out she a closet racist Islamaphobic and believes there are payed trolls on the internet stalking her -
