Amateur sleuth Chris Klick wants only to enjoy the simple life of beautiful Idaho with his new love, Nicole. Instead, money comes knocking and Klick heeds the call. Tracking down philandering M.I.A. maestro Stephan Shultz proves to be a steep challenge from the get-go. From Atlantic City to Paris to London, Klick pursues Shultz amidst a secret Oxford lover, a missing don, some pilfered port, and a lost Mozart manuscript. Will he find Shultz after all, or will he lose everything-including Nicole? Originally published under the name Wendell McCall from 1988 through 1999, author Ridley Pearson's Concerto in Dead Flat, the third and final installment in the three-book Chris Klick Mysteries series, retains all of its hard-boiled wit, grit, and sense of adventure today.
