The Right to Sing the Blues

New or Used: $21.90
An Alo Nudger Mystery. New Orlcans is off Alo Nudger's beaten path; the St. Louis private detective likes the comforts of home. But he also loves jazz and when he's given a round-trip ticket to the Crescent City by legendary clarinetist Fat Jack McGee, who needs to talk to him, Nudger is willing to take a flyer. Fat Jack has a problem, maybe two: a singer named Ineida, whose father is a very important man in New Orlcans, and a pianist named Hollister. Hollister plays the blues just fine, but there's something about him that disturbs Fat Jack. In fact, now that Hollister and the girl are an item, Fat Jack's scared. It doesn't take long before Nudger is, too...

About the Author

Two-time Shamus Award-winner John Lutz has produced more than 30 novels and 200 short stories. His SWF Seeks Same was the basis for the 1992 movie Single White Female starring Bridget Fonda. He lives in Webster Groves, Missouri.


Private eye Al Nudger is a long way from St. Louis, his home, in Lutz's followup to Nightlines. The detective goes to New Orleans, where Fat Jack McGee asks him to investigate blues pianist Willy Hollister, an SRO attraction at McGee's jazz club. The club's singer is Ineida Collins, who calls herself Ineida Mann to keep secret her identity as the daughter of David Collins, a rich and ruthless gangster and McGee's silent partner. Nudger's assignment is to investigate Hollister, who's carrying on an affair with the singer, and to advise her to break up with Hollister when reports about his previous lovers come to light. Those women were killed to give Hollister the heartbreak he expresses in the blues. On this improbable premise, Lutz builds a tense, witty tale that he persuades the reader to believe. January 28

"Suspenseful, and written with a lively sense of timing".-- Seattle Times Post-Intelligencer
