"He is a record collector -- a connoisseur of vinyl, hunting out rare and elusive LPs. Some end up on his turntable, some are sold at a handsome profit, and all sound a hell of a lot better than any digital recording. His business card describes him as the “Vinyl Detective” and some people take this more literally than others. Like the beautiful, mysterious woman who wants to pay him a large sum of money to find a priceless lost recording -- on behalf of an extremely wealthy, shadowy and somewhat sinister client. Given that he's just about to run out of cat food, this gets our hero's full attention. So begins a dangerous odyssey in search of the rarest jazz record of them all." - Back cover

Enjoyable book. I especially loved fhe main character and his quirky set of friends and I can’t forget his cats! I wish the rest of the series were avaible to loan.

Very funny and graced with two delighful cats. You don't need to be a jazz fan or audiophile.
