Second book in the Carney Wilde PI series. A fine mix of mystery and jazz all tied tyogether in the murder of The Prince, Harold Morton Prince, a big time piano player on the jazz circuit. the murderer has been caught.

Carney is hired by the fiance of the great man's daughter, a mean piano player in her own right, to prove allegations by the murderer that he had written all the famous songs credited to Prince. He had dubious proof to the claim on the two most famous songs.

I read most of Spicer's books several years ago for an author overview, and this one from his P.I. Carney Wilde series is one of the better ones.

It's been a while since I read this P.I. classic from Bart Spicer, but I remember liking it a lot. Spicer was an avid jazz fan. I think he dedicates it to his step-daughter.
