“Barbara Reed delivers a double treat with High Notes Are Murder and its companion CD: a fine mystery and musical accompaniment to die for.
Heroine Liz Hanlon is smart, big-hearted and talented—an up-and coming jazz singer, pianist

her and anyone else who stands too close. Reed provides a witty, fascinating insider’s
