Praise for this book

"An irresistible blend of murder, mystery and music... our protagonist seeks to find the rarest of records – and incidentally solve a murder, right a great historical injustice and, if he’s very lucky, avoid dying in the process." - Ben Aaronovitch

"Crime fiction as it should be, played loud through a valve amp and Quad speakers. No digital writing here, it’s warm and rich. Every delicate pop and crackle adding character and flavour. Witty, charming and filled with exciting solos. Quite simply: groovy." - Guy Adams

"The Vinyl Detective is one of the sharpest and most original characters I’ve seen for a long time." - David Quantick
