I really like these short mysteries published by Raven Books. I have read a number of them now and they are just the thing for light reading but with something to think about.

Frank Ryan is a piano tuner by day and a jazz musician by night living in Nanaimo, BC. He's seen all kinds of things stuffed in pianos but the dead dog in piano teacher Miss Pieczynski grand piano is one of the worst. Miss P. (as everyone calls her) seems distracted, even more so than usual. When she decides to pay him with an old piece of music Frank isn't too impressed as he would rather have money. When he gets it home and discovers that it is an original score from 1825 which appears to be handwritten by Beethoven he gets excited. Trouble is other people are looking for this piece of music. Miss P. is discovered dead in her apartment and it was not natural causes. Frank not only has to decide what to do with this rare find but also stay alive with at least two thugs after him.

Brian Harvey is a marine biologist by training but he is a great writer too if this book is anything to judge by. I loved some of his imagery. Here is how he describes playing a duet with the saxophone playing bar owner Kaz "We rode that tune like hawks on hot air, wingtip to wingtip." I hope to see more of Brian Harvey and Frank Ryan.

This book is going to be released in the 2015 Canada Days release challenge.
