Ksenija just asked me if I had a Music/Musician mystery book theme on the site, and I responded that I don’t. Actually, I started putting all of the mystery authors I could think of with Music/Musicians, and came up with this list, which I wrote as a comment, but just decided to post as a theme.
Joelle Charbonneau: Glee Club Mystery Series (high school choir coach)
Sara Hoskinson Frommer: Joan Spencer Mystery Series (orchestra manager)
Beverle Graves Myers: Baroque Mystery Series (18th Century Castrati)
Cynthia Harrod-Eagles: Bill Slider Mystery Series (young violin player girlfriend)
Morag Joss: Sara Selkirk Mystery Series – Sara is a world renown cellist.
Mark Scheweizer: Liturgical Mystery Series (choir director and organist at his Episcopal church)
