    If you ve ever lived in Chicago, you ll know that Melody for Murder captures it perfectly The politics, the criminals, the racial tension is all in this book from the beginning until the end And there is Bertie Bigelow right in the middle of things, a music professor with a taste for justice and no idea where to find it Carolyn Wilkins turns up the tension on Bertie from the very beginning of the novel and builds the pressure constantly and realistically throughout the novel In the process she creates a strong likable heroine that fans are going to want to read about again and again I think I have a crush on Bertie Bigelow.

    A modern whodunit featuring a music professor as an amateur sleuth Music and mystery go hand in hand as Bertie Bigelow search her Chicago neighborhood s cast of characters for her student s killer Not a cozy mystery but not a gory, hard boiled crime novel either makes this steady paced story an enjoyable read I loved every page

    If you come from the south side, you will know the places in this book, the ambience, and the attitudes But in any case it is a fun read, very fast paced, well constructed, and a world away from most detective novels, especially about women
