Oh, I love a good murder thriller! Mr. Dill has written a winner. The Nashville setting, the celebrities mentioned, the present day technology, the twists and turns of the story all kept me in anticipation - just as a good mystery should. So glad I found this one!

There is a lot going on in this thriller in addition to the "attempted murder of the music star". The power brokers in the music business, the creation of napster and the profitability of the stars in the music industry. It is an interesting read. It took me a little while to get into it and then the pages started to fly by. It was predictable in the final outcomes and fairly easy to untagle the added twists in the story line, there was some humor in the characters as the nurse Shirley gave ligh ...more

I got this book from a goodreads giveaway. I am so glad that I did. I was really happy to read the current references to technology and events because it always makes the story more accessible to me. The plot gripped me with long, sharp talons.. I had difficulty putting this book down!!

I wish I had another novel by this author to read. I will be on the lookout!

I liked the inside look at the country music business. Although I found Judd to be a little too naive and bumbling. At times there were too many music executives to keep track of, but it was a descent who done it.

The end was suspenseful and very climatic.
That was a thrill ride. I'm still not sure exactly what happened - sort of like the main character feels at the end of the book.

Any book that starts with an assassination attempt is going to dump a person into the action quickly. Well, this book does begin with an assassination attempt, then backs up for the lead-up to the shooting. That the shooting happens at the Grand Ole Opry should tell a person a lot about the setting.

Judd Nix wants to be in the music industry - in Nashville, not New York

Oh good grief. My father in law has been in the Nashville music industry for decades and still is. We have been here for a while ourselves and know a lot of people in the industry, entertainers that is. This book makes me CRINGE. This is so hokey, so pathetic, it is worse than an amateur pushing poorly written country songs at the Bluebird Cafe. This is NOT Nashville at all. Most of us would like to take Dill over to the Parthenon in Centennial Park and offer him as a sacrifice to the huge statu ...more
The author did a good job describing Nashville and the environs. He also wove a decent tale, fast paced and believable. I would recommend this book without hesitation.

Murder on music row
The story began with a lot of details and superfluous facts about the music industry. The actual event happened well into the book. Even as the story unfolded it was packed with unnecessary details. The basic story was good but seemed to be hindered by the clutter of detail.
A little hokey, but if you have lived in Nashville you will enjoy it. The characters constantly forcing Nashville trivia into conversation and delivering commentary on the entertainment industry.
It's a fun story, and if you love Nashville or country music, you'll probably love this book. But I found the dialog a bit unrealistic and I didn't care for all the music industry minutiae.
Informative about the music business and highly entertaining. A good mystery, very fast paced in the last ten chapters.

An otherwise pleasant read that takes place in Nashville was ruined by our heroine who "wretched" in the sink.
