John Rockne is a pleasant PI to follow. He's married, has children and doesn't carry a gun. A regular joe, although with a darker cop past. Hired by the father of a murder victim who used to build custom guitars to find out who really killed her he faces a popular country singer, a dangerous assassin and more. The case turns out to have a connection with his past, making this case a bit more personal than he Rockne thought.
The pacing is great as is the dialogue. I was a bit confused about the scenes with the mysterious killer that suddenly stopped appearing while I thought they would last until the climax of the novel.
Good reading for fans of David Housewright and Jonathan Kellerman.
