about the book

38-year-old formal teen idol Sandy Fairfax is a guest panelist on a TV game show–and the first category is murder!

When his brother, a college professor is framed for the murder of one of his student, Sandy investigates, in between fighting with his ex, visiting his kids, wooing his new girlfriend, and presenting a concert at a black tie gala to save his father’s orchestra.

Sandy’s ready to tear out his long blond hair as the game points and suspects pile up.
