Murder in E-Flat Major

Murder in E-flat Major

The world of classical music, incriminating fingerprints, and a federal justice system gone wrong ensnare Thomas Martindale in one of the most difficult situations of his professional life. Murder in E-Flat Major takes the Martindale from the scene of a terror attack on the Yaquina Bay Bridge to a secret terrorist camp near Oregon’s Drift Creek Falls. As usual, the amateur sleuth is just trying to help a friend: this time a cellist in the local symphony orchestra. "I have heard that death can come in many different ways," she tells him, "but never by cello."

Murder in E-Flat Major is the latest of Ron Lovell's Thomas Martindale mysteries. Martindale, like Lovell, knows the Oregon Coast well; its nooks and crannies, its lighthouses, secluded coves, crumbling cliffs above the rough sea, bridges, and boat docks—and its possibilities for murder and mayhem. Other titles in the series include Descent Into Madness, where deadly virus research mixes explosively with a spooky, abandoned sanitarium. Yaquina White takes Martindale to Yaquina Head lighthouse where he becomes entangled with cocaine gangs, an arctic expedition to study global warming, and a renegade ship carrying a mysterious cargo. In Dead Whales Tell No Tales, Martindale must learn his whales, racing against time to save a friend accused of murdering a whale biologist.
