In Don Bruns' fifth outing with music journalist Mick Sever, Mick is visiting Nassau to write a story about Highland Studios, a recording studio that suffered an arson fire killing a person who was never identified. Now rebuilt, some believe the studio is haunted by the ghost of the arson victim. But owners Jonah and Rita Britt are determined to get the studio back up and producing again. They have a shot at doing just that with the band Johnny Run who has returned to Nassau in hopes of re-igniting their music career.

But the problem is strange things are starting to happen around the studio. Someone is managing to get inside the studio and damage furniture and equipment, erase recordings, even steal things. Jonah and Rita have given the keys to no one, so who could possibly be causing these things to happen? The ghost?

When Johnny Run's manager is murdered followed closely by the band's star, Mick starts investigating the evidence. He's determined to find out who is creating all the havoc on Paradise Island.

Bahama Burnout follows in the tradition of Bruns' four previous Mick Sever novels. Mix sun, sand, women, booze, drugs and rock and roll, add some mystery and mayhem, and you have the makings of a story ripe for Mick Sever. This time Sever is sans his ex-wife Ginny, but he still manages to wrap himself up in the ugly side of the music industry for the sake of a good story.
