Industry Reviews
"An irresistible blend of murder, mystery and music... our protagonist seeks to find the rarest of records - and incidentally solve a murder, right a great historical injustice and , if he's very lucky, avoid dying in the process." - Ben; "The Vinyl Detective is one of the sharpest and most original characters I've seen for a long time." - David Quantick.
