About the Book:

Killer songs and a killer voice land Vy Blanco in yet another melodic murder mystery. Interlude Records has signed Vy to a long-anticipated record deal after years of rejections, but she never thought that murder would be part of the deal. Now Vy finds herself, yet again, at the center of a murder investigation that may change the course of her music career.

It seems that someone doesn’t want Vy to record her album, and is doing everything to sabotage the release date, including murdering a key member of the production team. So Vy and her sister, Alexia, are back at it again—detecting in their own way. This time they’re using their quick-witted banter, and super sleuthing skills to ensure that Vy’s record makes it to the Billboard Top 100 list before the murderer makes it to the Miami Beach Police Department’s most wanted list.

They say the music industry is cutthroat, but Vy has never taken that statement literally. Could this be the strum of Vy’s guitar playing her last note IN THE KEY OF DEAD?

About the Author:

The Miami Music Mystery series’ main backdrop, the amazing city of Miami, Florida, is beloved and well-known to author Zaida Alfaro, who was born and raised here. Like the novel’s main character Vy, she is a singer/songwriter, Grammy-considered, independent artist. All things relating to music or literature are her passion.Many years ago, she became an avid reader of cozy mysteries. The story lines were intriguing, engaging, and funny at the same time. She was so inspired by the authors, that she then decided to take her musical experiences, and put it on paper. She published her first novel, The Last Note: Miami Music Mystery. Now, she has brought her characters back to life, in the sequel, In the Key of Dead: A Miami Music Mystery. The phobias, the dream sequences, and the quirkiness of the main characters, are all based on facts. She hopes that she was able to, once again, show the readers of her novels, the love she has for Miami, the Cuban culture, her family, and music.For more information, visit www.zaidamusic.com
