The real prize? The Masterson Files, a computer program with the impossible ability to cast magic.
Everyone seems to think Rune is the key, but she doesn’t have a clue what happened to her former husband or his revolutionary code. Despite the lies between them, the only person she can turn to is cybernetic corporate spy, St. Benedict.

The Frontman by Lawrence Parlier – Review by Anastasia Dodson

The FrontmanThe Frontman by Lawrence Parlier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Frontman was the first book that i have read by this author and i thought it was an interesting murder mystery. I was pulled in from page one and i had that edge of my seat feeling throughout alot of the book. A legendary Artist Kerry Vance is killed under mysterious circumstances and his friend Avery is determined to find out what really happened with death. We set off from here to hopefully find out what happened to Kerry but more and more questions pop up and we have some major and mysterious twists that come into the light.
Overall i enjoyed this book and i liked following the mystery until the very end. I am looking forward to reading more by this author soon! I would recommend this to anyone that likes a good mystery!
Happy Reading!!

When an ageing rock star dies on tour, is it suicide or is there other forces working?

The book opens with the death of Kerry Vance a veteran Rock Star who is found believing he has overdosed on heroin, but when a stranger comes forward to protest to his family that they believe it was foul play that’s when the story gets interesting.

This is the first book by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery thriller aspect of the story. The main characters are great and complement each other brilliantly, although there are alot of secondary characters which enhances the story excellently. As the story flows through the main story there are little stories that’s been well written and developed which has you engrossed until the last word.

I would recommend this story to anyone who loves a good mystery which is unique and a page turning. Can’t wait to read more books by this author.

The Frontman by Lawrence Parlier a rhythmic four-star read. This is my first read by this author and it wont be my last, there was something about the mystery that just kept you hooked, I don’t know what to say as I don’t want to spill anything about this. There are great characters in this story, strong people who keep the story going and even though the story is about Rockstar Kerry Vance but he isn’t the only one we hear about and I think that was what made this story complete. Do pick this up if you are in the mood for a good mystery with great pacing and sublime characters.

This book starts with us finding out that Kerry Vance has died in his hotel room of an overdose while on tour in England, this news is a shock to the system of his family, his best friend, a mystery from his past and those who know him through his music.

We start the book off a member of his family spilling orange juice all over the floor in shock and having to reign themselves in from emotionally collapsing until their daughter leaves for school.
Next we see his best friend amidst a horrendous hangover trying to take in the news, they are rudely awoken from a stupor by their other best friend, who seems determined to finish off what the alcohol, anger, devastation and drugs had started the night before. From their point of view, what the news has reported about Kerry’s death isn’t all adding up and that it was not in Kerry’s’ character to go the way he did but is determined to somehow get to the truth of the matter.

Finally we meet a long time friend of Kerry who is also hit hard by the news of his death and is desperately trying to come to terms with the news when a mysterious package from Kerry himself arrives. As they remember their time with him, they are confused as to why they have received this package and eventually pluck up the courage to open the box and read the letter addressed to them. The contents of this are a shock to the system as is the realisation why Kerry has sent it and the strange request within it.

The story continues as this request is followed to the letter, but what with trying to both stay out of trouble and cause it all at the same time, whether it can be done is another thing completely.

There are plot twists and turns in this story and nothing is as it seems throughout. It is a non-stop whirlwind that keeps your emotions on edge and a need to know how it will end, will keep you reading.

Four Stars

The Frontman is a murder mystery/thriller by Laurence Parlier. This is the first book I have read by this author, but definitely not my last. This book grabbed my attention from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the last. I enjoyed the plotline and the characters are relatable and engaging. The twists and turns in this story had my head spinning. I would think I knew what was going to happen next, but no….. things changed. I highly recommend this book and author. I look forward to reading more from books from Mr. Laurence.

I was pleasantly surprised by the twists and turns that The Frontman took. Reading the blurb, I knew it was about the death of Kerry Vance. Kerry is the lead singer of band going on tour. His death is what you come to expect of those leading the rock star life…drug overdose in a hotel. However, those that really knew Kerry aren’t believing what they are being told. Enter Calliope, a woman from Kerry’s past, to start helping those in Kerry’s life find out what really happened.

There were so many twists in this story. Each person who plays a role in this book has a connection to Kerry…but what happens when paths start crossing and everyone’s little pieces of Kerry’s story begin to reveal the bigger picture. This is a story of loss and love…but also self-discovery and healing. I found myself pulled into the story from the beginning, wanting to know what really happened. I liked some characters while despising others. I was also surprised at the link between people and the roles they played in Kerry’s life. All together, a good story that is definitely worth a read.
