Grateful to Long & Short Reviews for their praise of PLAYED TO DEATH:  "Lawson uses the gothic features of the abandoned Opera House to great effect, creating an atmospheric background for the crimes and the solving of them, all of it accompanied with music that’s almost like another character. The pace never sagged and it kept me enthralled."
The first book in the series featuring Scott Drayco, a former classical pianist turned FBI agent who now serves as a crime consultant.

Author Karen Karbo offers up a witty (and slightly depressing) take on the world of publishing a book in 1991 versus 2014.
