He is a record collector — a connoisseur of vinyl, hunting out rare and elusive LPs. His business card describes him as the “Vinyl Detective” and some people take this more literally than others.
Like the beautiful, mysterious woman who wants to pay him a large sum of money to find a priceless lost recording — on behalf of an extremely wealthy (and rather sinister) shadowy client.
Given that he’s just about to run out of cat biscuits, this gets our hero’s full attention. So begins a painful and dangerous odyssey in search of the rarest jazz record of them all…

Written in Dead Wax by Andrew Cartmel
Andrew Cartmel is one of my closest friends and gave me first writing job and has a book out tomorrow.
Now I actually read each chapter as it was written and by the end I had to taken to calling Andrew and begging him to get a move on.
So despite the fact that this is a friend and a colleague I want to say - this is a really good book and you might want to give it a whirl.
I particularly like Tinkler's coma, the cats, the Aryan assassins and the high quality red herrings that will have you second guessing the resolution until the last chapter.
