Nashville's Bart and the Cousins, in England on a road trip, have a chart-topping song. Unfortunately, Bart also has an indictment back in the USA over an underage groupie. Keeping that hot news out of the London papers is a job for Doug Perkins of the PR firm Perkins and Tate.
Doug soon finds that you can take the boy out of the country...but he's still going to run after jailbait. And when Doug thinks the situation can't get any worse, secrets about love and money start emerging faster than sad notes from the band's toothless harmonica player. What's really going on among Bart and the Cousins is a shocker, but even a spin doctor can't cover up its deadly consequences. Instead Doug may have to turn from PR to PI...and figure out who committed murder.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Not one single thing ...except maybe a stick of dynamite.
Has Cover-Up Story turned you off from other books in this genre?
Not the genre but certainly the author. the plot was trite and passe; I don't know why this book was even considered remotely relevant to today's mystery reader's tastes.
Any additional comments?
Don't waste your credit, cash nor time on this piece of petrified tripe!
