My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Murder at Music Hall is Book one in the True North Murder Mystery Series. I love a good murder mystery every now and again, brings back memories of my grandmas murder mystery dinner themed parties she used to throw. Murder at Music hall was engaging, well-written, and had me hooked to the point that I had to get to the end to find out what really happened. I did feel, like some other readers, it was a bit wordy in some places which slowed the overall pace of the novel. I would still like to continue this series to see what else A. J. Ullman has in store for the reader.

Murder At Music Hall (A True North Murder Mystery Book 1)Murder At Music Hall by A. J. Ullman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Trueman “True” North is a private investigator in Cincinnati and his life and past experiences mean that he knows all about Death and even feels like they are just hovering and waiting for his luck to run out, but he is haunted and very much an outsider, however, when he is hired by one of the richest men in his town, he realises just how far outside he is.

St. John Skidmore is a business man with a need for justice for his son Stoddard who was brutally murdered at the Music Hall while practicing the timpani which he played for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and it was brutal but he believes that the wrong person was arrested and convicted, so he wants True to take a look and see what he can find.

As True gathers all the evidence, witness statements and court papers, he conducts his own interviews to find out what he can about Stoddard and his life in and around the music hall, all while trying to juggle his personal life in the process, but as he digs deeper into the case, he finds that the rich are a law unto themselves.

There are more skeletons hidden in the proverbial closets of family, friends, colleagues and rivals that True’s moral compass is spinning and between meddling sisters, jilted lovers, monetary incentives and threats galore, will True be able to hold onto his ideals and put the right person away, or will money win over truth? This is a murder mystery which is full of twists, turns, secrets and lies, where nothing is straight laced and money talks, or silences, depending on the situation as you follow along on this thrilling dig into the ghosts of the untouchable.

Stoddard Skidmore has turned up dead and the culprit has already been caught. Or has he? His father doesn’t think so. St. John Skidmore enlists the help of former detective turned private investigator, Truman North, to find the real killer. Truman gathers as much information as he can from many sources to find out what the victims life was like while alive. We get hints along the way of who the true culprit may be. Many of the people interviewed have secrets so of course they don’t tell everything. There are many perks to living in the high society and Truman is learning that they will do anything to keep their secrets buried. The twists and turns will keep you turning the pages. The author did a great job keeping the reader engaged. If you like a good mystery I suggest giving this one a chance.

Murder At Music Hall (A True North Murder Mystery Book 1)Murder At Music Hall by A. J. Ullman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Intriguing, well-written mystery, though long-winded at times. I generally enjoyed this read and felt the author tied the story together well. There was plenty of intrigue and ultimately loved the way everything came together in the end. The author really pulls the reader in with the engaging writing style and with action right away.

Retired detective and curren private investigator Trueman North is a likable character, with a past, that will make a great cornerstone for this series. He is on the case to discover the killer of timpanist—even though someone is already in jail.

While the story was engaging and the main character is likable for a series starter, I did feel there were parts of the book that were wordy and read slowly and I found myself urging the story along. This isn’t overwhelmingly negative and could also be a reflection of just wanting to know what was going to happen next, but nonetheless I did feel it could be a bit more succinct in places.

Overall I recommend this as the plot and culmination of the story was very well done.

This was such an incredible start to this series, and I can’t wait to pick up the second book already! I love a good thrilling mystery read, so this was definitely up my alley. I really enjoyed the way the author is able to create a world you can disappear in without realizing it. I was on the edge of my seat the entire way through the book! I thought the flow of the story was magnificent and smooth, never finding myself pulled out by a misplaced sentence or abrupt change in the storyline. I don’t want to give anything away, but I was not expecting the twists and turns that occurred! I love the suspense and will be waiting on pins and needles for the next book to arrive. I highly recommend getting lost in this dark crime mystery for your weekend!

Murder at Music Hall is a dark murder mystery that will pull you in and keep you turning the pages. Trueman North is investigating an old murder case where someone was presumed to be wrongfully convicted. As the detective delves deeper into the crime, and the victim’s life, he finds things were not as perfect as they seemed originally. As secrets and pieces of information come to light, anyone can be a suspect. Who really killed the victim, and why?

This is the first book in the True North Murder Mystery series. This story was an enjoyable murder mystery. The author does an amazing job with the details and fully immersing the reader into the investigation. The authors knowledge of police procedures and what goes into an investigation really brings the story to life for me.

How he is going to deal with things when the people around him think they can buy their way out of trouble?
This is dark murder mystery which will use every bit of experience the detective has and more.
Is the man currently serving a jail sentence the murderer? Does it have anything to do with Stoddard at all or was he collateral damage? Was this something to do with Skidmore’s competitors or someone closer to home?

I loved this story which was full of intrigue and twists and turns. I can’t wait to read more.

As an English teacher, I am thrilled to have read a book that used one of our vocabulary words from last week- kowtow. One character wonders what a character is holding over a third character, that makes the third character kowtow to the whims of the second character. Information is power, and sometimes power is used for nefarious purposes. As an amateur musician, I love the backdrop of the symphony orchestra. As a reader, I enjoy the thrill of the whodunit genre.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder at Music Hall is a good start to a new series, which I intend to continue reading. It takes place in Ohio in the the 1960s, which I was kind of surprised by. It was well written and I was happy to not figure it out. We follow Trueman North, a retired homicide detective as he re-investigates a murder. There was someone convicted, but the victim’s father doesn’t believe he was the real killer. He hires True to investigate and we follow along as he digs up all the dirt. We expect the victim to be a high class upstanding citizen, since he is a member of the orchestra, and comes from a rich family. But as True investigates further, he uncovers a tainted history. There are a slew of people who may want him dead, but True is left to find the killer. The book had a good level of suspense that kept me engaged, and I look forward to more in the series.

I highly enjoyed following Trueman “True” North to find the true murderer of Stoddard Skidmore. As True digs into the case with his investigation skills he realizes that it isn’t quite as open and shut as it seems. Not only is there a compelling murder, but the reader also gets to learn more about True and his backstory as well. The book is set in 1977 with some embellishments in historical details, which the author explains at the end. It is a dark crime mystery; the pacing of the story is fantastic. The clues are there for you to find out the murderer before the reveal, but the reason why is even more compelling. I personally won’t hesitate to pick up the next book in this series!

This is the first book I have read by this author. I will tell you that its very graphic when it comes to describing the scene where someone loses their life. I actually had a hard time getting it into at first because of the graphic description. Which is weird for me, since I tend to enjoy books that get graphic. Detective North (who is retired homicide detective, and now a Private Investigator) has been hired by the victims father to find out who hurt his boy. There are moments that I feel like there should be more description but overall I really like the book. Definitely recommend this book to others who like reading about mystery, murder, mayhem.

Murder at Music Hall is the first book in the True North Murder Mystery series. I enjoyed it, and look forward to reading more from this series!

Trueman North has channeled his tragic past into a determination to find justice for victims of murder. He is focused and diligent, never taking the easy way out. Now retired as a detective and working as a PI, North has been hired by a man who believes that the wrong person was accused of his son’s murder. Now North must find the real killer, and why they did it, as well as proving that the man who was accused is innocent.

As North seeks insights into the victim’s life and death from a variety of sources, we get drip fed bits of information that may or may not lead to the murderer. Many characters have secrets, but not all of their secrets are clues. Some of the secrets are quite dark and may be triggering to some readers.

This is an engrossing read for mystery fans who enjoy a story that will make them think. I particularly enjoyed the orchestral setting as it’s fun getting to see behind the scenes at the orchestra. It gets four stars from me!

A. J. Ullman has created an awesome murder mystery! He truly set the bar high with the first book of this series, Murder at Music Hall. This first book seems like a very interesting series from A.J. and I love me some really good crime stories. A.J. has a unique way of writing dark crime stories and has a way of making you feel like you are part of the mystery. I started reading the book and before I knew it, I was completely consumed by the story. There was so much mystery and suspense, drama and angst.
True knows this case is going to take everything he has and is going to take some major thinking outside the box. The murder isn’t even his biggest hurdle he has to jump, it’s the rich, snotty, and pain in the butt people that seem to be making things more complicated for him.
It was a long night of reading because even if I wanted to, I could not put it down.
This story is full of lies and betrayal, and manipulation. I found myself lost in every word turning page after page and I am looking forward to reading more from A.J.!

Murder At Music Hall is the first book in the True North Murder Mystery series by A.J Ullman. This is a thought-provoking crime thriller that had me engrossed right from the get-go.
As expected from Mr. Ullman, this story is well-woven, intriguing, and suspenseful. And again, Mr. Ullman’s attention to detail and meticulousness gave this story the authenticity, believability, intrigue, depth, and mystery that others in the same genre are sometimes lacking.
I was completely immersed in his story, and can’t wait to continue the series. Bring on Book #2!
So, if you love crime and investigation thrillers, twists & turns, intriguing storylines, complex characters, depth, and plenty of tension — then this is definitely the book for you!
Happy Reading…

Thank you, A.J Ullman!

The hunt is on for Gabriella but Jorja has her hands full with a foreign country , foreign language , strange culture and customs , bribery , corruption , greed , lies and dangerous characters .

Despite the feelings of anxiousness , fear , suspense and everything else there was a strong sense of the value of friendship and friends are the family we choose , our family not by blood and Jorja went all out for hers , she’s someone I’d want in my tribe 😉

A gripping murder mystery which had me hooked throughout. Trueman “True” North is a retired homicide detective who is very familiar with death and thinks that his next case will be just another ‘by-the-book’ investigation. However, when the case involves St. John Skidmore the richest man in town, he knows it’s not going to be easy. He’s been asked to find out who murdered the son, Stoddard Skidmore but must contend with both the meddling daughter Kitty and Skidmore’s ruthless business competitor. True finds himself in the land of the uber-rich among people who presume he can be paid off, warned off or seduced. True is determined to find the truth as if he does not find the real killer than an innocent man will rot in prison, and the murderer will be free. The characters and the setting were brought vividly to life through the descriptive narrative. I found that True is a great main character, and I look forward to investigating further murder mysteries with him.

3.75 stars

I was hooked from the prologue of this book but it quickly vanished and I found myself wondering when this story would end. I love a great mystery book and I love music so I was questioning what I was missing when this story just stalled out for me.

This story is set in 1976, the day after Christmas. There were several things, which the author discusses in the appendix of the book, that just didn’t fit within the time frame. These really threw me off while reading this and took away from the book for me. While an author has the right to defect from historical accuracy, I personally felt like it took away from the story.

I also felt like parts of this story dragged on forever and several things felt like they were on repeat for me. I realize my review is unpopular opinion, as several people really enjoyed this story. I felt like it could have been 100 pages shorter and still accomplished the same outcome.

One thing I did like about this story is that I agree with the conclusion that True North came to in the end. It was the right thing to do considering all the circumstances.

Please don’t take my review as the best, as previously mentioned, my review is not of the popular opinion. It’s an enjoyable story but it took me much longer to read this one than most books in this genre take me. I had a hard time staying engaged in the story but did read it to completion.

This was a nice quick listen, and I enjoyed learning about Eve and her journey through college while solving another one of her mysteries. The book had an extra twist to it that I didn’t expect while working on the mystery. Eve was determined to solve this while in school, in a time crunch, and with her missing friend’s mother causing her extra stress! I hope the next reader will enjoy this listen like I did!
