Rock-star Brendan Phelan knows how to thrill a crowd – gunshots and cracking whips punctuate the thudding bass and crushing guitar
chords. But after the show has ended, another shot is fired and Oliver Joplin, long-time roadie, is found lifeless, with a shocked Phelan towering over him.
Detective Inspector Costello is called to the scene of the crime and quickly begins to discover that Joplin was widely disliked and distrusted. But who would profit from his death? Little by little, Costello unpicks a tangled web of lies. But secrets have left tongues tied and unless someone breaks the silence, the killer may never be found…
This third installment of ‘A Mystery for D.I. Costello’ sees Angela Costello take on a shocked and uncommunicative rock-star, a crazed runner and a team of people with much to hide. When the music fades, who will be left standing?
Early praise for End of the Roadie:
“End of the Roadie sees D.I. Costello tackling blackmail, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll – and the wrong end of a gun. You’ll be gripped by the stories and the characters. Another gem from Elizabeth Flynn!” – CINDY KENT, BROADCASTER, Premier Radio
“Elizabeth’s breathless and well-paced style takes us behind the scenes at a music concert, where all is not well. A mysterious death draws us in to a murky world of ticket scams and filthy lucre…” – TONY JASPER, AUTHOR, BROADCASTER, and ACTOR.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Elizabeth Flynn is a Londoner of Anglo-Irish parentage. She has a background in the theatre both as an actress and in stage management, and has experience in broadcasting. She has more recently worked as a hospital bereavement officer and managed a mortuary so she ‘knows the drill’ and has used some of this experience in her writing. This is her third novel in the series: A Mystery for D.I. Costello.
Post card review
This book was a lovely Sunday afternoon read. It was well paced and easily finished in once day or one sitting if you have 2 or 3 hours to take out of your day
A fantastic old fashioned mystery something Agatha Christie would be very proud of
