The Heat is OnFor rock and roll writer Mick Sever, another story, another deadly island paradise is all in a day's work. This time, Mick heads to Nassau, Bahamas, home of the legendary Highland Studio. Known for pumping out hits that burn up the charts, Highland is where the magic happens―or rather, where the magic happened until a devastating fire destroyed the entire studio. No one knows how the fire started, who started it―or whose body was found among the charred ruins. Sent to get the inside story on the opening of the new Highland Studio, Mick finds this is hardly the Phoenix-rising-out-of-the-ashes story he expected. Some say the studio's haunted, some say it's cursed, but one thing is for sure: someone―or something―wants to stop the music. A smashed guitar and erased tracks send a subtle warning, but murder? That's an entirely different tune. If Mick doesn't act fast, Highland Studio, along with everything and everyone in its path, could go up in smoke. It's not always better to burn out than to fade away.

I couldn't get into this book, and forced myself to finish it. Too much seemed contrived and the introduction of the killer 11 pages from the end was too much of a gimmick. Plus, there was no real conclusion. I felt like the author couldn't figure out how to end the story, so the main character simply walks away from the situation.
The ending seemed contrived, as if the writer just got tired of writing and ended the book. I like the other books of Mr. Bruns that I have read, this one not so much.
enjoyed very much. twists and turns and enjoyable characters. elvis car is a nice touch. keep you involved until the end. i will try some more of his books.
Book has arrived. Thank you!!!!
Interesting look inside the music industry, which I knew nothing about. Story line is strong; interesting, believable characters. Surprising twist in third act very well executed.
This book was captivating from the start. I have been to the Bahamas and the references to places in the book brought back wonderful memories. I thought the end could have been a little less abrupt. Jamaica Blue was a bit better.
Good reading, but scattered. Hard to follow who was who. The ending was horrible! Why bother writing if you can't finish a story?
Entertainment writer Mick Sever lands in Nassau, Bahamas for the grand reopening of the legendary Highland Studios after a devastating fire more than a year ago. His friends Jonah and Rita Britt rebuilt the studio with the hope they can return it to its former glory. Because of the fire and a few failed albums, it is important that the Britt's next few ventures are successful.

That said, the group Johnny Run is back in the studio hoping their latest album will revive their career. Unfortunately, a smashed Sheryl Crow guitar and erased recording, plus the mysterious death of the groups manager, doesn't bode well for a comeback. Other mysterious happenings in and around the studio suggest there are deeper problems than just trying to finish an album.

In his fifth Mick Sever mystery, Don Bruns has created a quirky cast of characters including the intriguing Etta Mae who lives near the studio and who is trying to sell a rusty sixties Cadillac she swears was once owned by Elvis; Eric, the short portly policeman who is a special friend of Etta Mae's and who is involved in the various investigations surrounding the studio; and at least one very creepy character who slithers around the studio unbeknownst to the owners.

With more than one life on the line including his own, Mick must find out who the mysterious culprit is before more tragedy occurs.

Bruns has written a spooky thriller that holds the reader's attention from incident to mysterious incident. The reader has inside information that Jonah and Rita Britt and Sever do not have, but that does not take away from the overall mystery or the surprise ending.
