After a big push in April to finalize both the paperback and eBook versions simultaneously, Tune Up: The Secrets of Mylin Book I released on Monday May 1, 2017. So it’s official—Qigiq and Kandy are back in their second novel together. Tune Up begins only days after the end of Mash Up, with a brand new challenge and cast of characters. Ferdinand is still running the Evidence Recovery lab, and Captain Jasik passes out assignments that aren’t homicides. These new crimes lead to an Asian woman who plays the viola. Young. Beautiful. And illegal.
As a thank you for your support, the eBook is available for a limited time at the introductory price of $1.99 (List: $5.99). Please grab your copy quickly. The paperback is also now shipping, for those who prefer atoms to bits.
A new book with no reviews is a lonely thing. So if you enjoy Tune Up, and are so inclined, please let the world know on Amazon (love those 5 stars). Each review is much appreciated. I hope you enjoy reading Tune Up as much as I did writing it.
After a short break to explore some new music and take a motorbike ride, I’ll be back at the keyboard working on the second installment of The Secrets of Mylin.
P.S. From the dustjacket…
On their second case, Qigiq and Kandy are loaned to the Traffic Division to investigate an early morning accident. Hit and run. By a motorcycle. The victim is an elderly Asian woman. A young witness in a nearby dry cleaner and a truck driver suggest all “accidents” aren’t created equal. Then the Captain drops a new assignment on their desk: an affluent Bay Area lawyer is missing. The man’s wife stomps into their office screaming about a contract she found hidden in the backups of their home computer. A contract with a seven-figure payout, and an incriminating Exhibit A.
Following the trail of both the motorcycle rider and the lawyer with Kandy complaining, “We’re homicide detectives, there should be a body,” leads to a vintage motorcycle club called the Ton Up where lips are sealed, a yacht harbor on the coast where riddles run deep, and a midnight roadside confrontation that ends with a splash. As the trails twist they soon find that these people and places have one thing in common:
A violist named Mylin. Who plays in an all-female orchestra called The Girls of the Orient. And, unbeknownst to her, is the subject of a fine-art photographer’s latest collection.
From San Francisco to Mexico, the treacherous cliffs of the Pacific coast to the desolation of Nevada’s high desert, Tune Up moves like Kandy’s turbocharged Mini through a foggy landscape of false identities, fake romance, and frenzied chases, as Qigiq realizes one picture really can reveal more than 1,000 words.
