Had to read this quickly as the author was going to be at a wine tasting event and I wanted to be know what I was talking about. Went into the book knowing no more than that and was pleasantly surprised to find a locally set quick paced mystery. And it looked like Patrick Linder was selling out at the wine tasting!

I loved just about every second of this book. My favorite thing about it besides the story line is the vast amount of detail and thought put into every moment. I was easily able to picture everything in my head while reading. Defiantly will read it again!

Ghost Music is a two-for-one murder mystery that finds Detective Marcus Brace of the Seattle Police Department conducting an investigation of a brutal murder near Seattle’s Pike Place Market just as he receives news that Mr. Brey, his boyhood father figure, has died. Returning to his Kansas hometown for the funeral, he discovers not only that Mr. Brey has already been cremated but that he has also fallen victim to murder himself, one that Brace is determined to solve as well.

So many great thing about this book, but the one I want to lead off with is the fact that it is based in Seattle. I love anything that can bring me mentally back to where my heart resides. I can envision everything from the damp, dank, dark Seattle days to the trip Detective Brace takes to Puyallup. Thank you, Mr. Linder, for gifting me an ARC copy that held a greater gift within.

Broken.. from youth to adulthood, and constantly left abandoned, Det. Brace finds himself in a whirlwind of raw sexua

Ghost Music is fast paced psychological thriller/mystery. It starts with a bang and races along as the hero Marcus Brace risks everything to solve a murder case and learn about himself. It’s hard to mention points in this complicated plot without giving away clues, but be assured there’s just the right amount of sex too.

This book isn’t about supernatural beings; it’s more profound. Ghost music is the voices all of us, at least those of us who are ever introspective, hear and perhaps fear. You’ll

I won this book in a giveaway and it was also my first introduction to the psychological thriller/ mystery genre. I loved the gritty Seattle setting and the characters and plot were okay too however, this book wasn't as enthralling as I had hoped. Still a decent book overall and worth picking up if you're in the mood for modest mystery novel.

Patrick Linder creates a hard-nosed gumshoe in his novel, Ghost Music. But the real protagonist in this well-crafted story is the author’s writing style. Mr. Linder’s effortless prose allows the readers to see and feel each detail in every chapter, almost as if being part of the story themselves. Ghost Music is a surefire hit.
