Product Overview

"A STUNNER!"-Denver Post
When work is slow, Carlotta Carlyle drives a cab on Boston's night-shrouded streets. When love goes wrong, she plays blues on a steel string guitar. And sometimes, when someone dies, she gets paid to find out why...
The photos come one every week. A beautiful baby. A growing toddler. The apple of someone's eye. Then Carlotta finds out who has been sending her the snapshots-and why. Now, she begins an investigation into a revered Boston hospital and the possibility that a seven-year-old cancer patient was murdered there. And when her client goes missing and a stalker comes crashing into her life, Carlotta knows that in a realm of clashing egos and big-time medicine, a killer is desperately trying to cover his tracks. But what he has to hide, how far it reaches, and how many hearts it will break is still unclear. Until Carlotta gets the big picture-and faces an evil that she must conquer...any way she can.
"Irresistible!"-Chicago Sun-Times
"Barnes scored a direct hit with Steel Guitar, and her P.I. is in top form here."

Author Info
Linda Barnes
Linda Barnes first received critical praise in 1986, when she introduced her most popular crime solver, Carlotta Carlyle. A tall, guitar-playing, taxi-driving ex-cop and private investigator, Carlyle first appeared in a short story called "Bad Penny". Carlyle, like many of Barnes's characters, is known for her vivacious sense of humor and her wry, ironic outlook on life. Barnes graduated from Boston University with a B.F.A., taught theater in Massachusetts from 1971 to 1978, and married computer expert Richard Barnes. Among many awards she has received throughout her career, she won an Anthony Award for best short stories, and an American Mystery Award for best private eye novel.
