Looking for Chet Baker

Bill Moody: Looking for Chet Baker (USA 2003)

From the Publisher:
NOT JUST A PIANO MAN
Pianist Evan Horne's European interlude lands him a gig in Amsterdam, where the old jazz clubs are alive and well. But here he unexpectedly finds himself reliving the last days of legendary blues trumpeter Chet Baker, who died under mysterious circumstances. Did Baker fall from a hotel balcony or was he pushed? The answers lead Horne on an odyssey into one of the greatest mysteries of the jazz world -- and beyond.

Horne's longtime buddy Ace Buffington, in Amsterdam researching the late jazz great's life and tragic death, has disappeared. Ace's trail parallels that of Baker's last days, so Horne does what he does best: improvise, baby, as he finds himself following the same path into Baker's dark, even dangerous past, and in doing so, confronting his own deep-rooted melancholy. In the smoky clubs and on the mean, exotic streets of Amsterdam, Horne hits all the right notes in a world where playing it by heart can make you a legend... as easily as it can get you killed.

Bill Moody: Looking for Chet Baker. An Evan Horne Mystery. Worldwide Library, ISBN: 037326450X (March, 2003), 269 p., $5.99.

Looking for Chet Baker

Bill Moody: Looking for Chet Baker (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
The trumpet was silenced, but the questions remain
  Evan Horne's comeback at the keyboard has brought him to England, where he hopes he can concentrate on his music and not think about crimes. But his friend Ace Buffington, who's led him into trouble before, shows up with a problem: Ace has a contract to write a biography of the late trumpeter Chet Baker, and since Evan's going on to Amsterdam, too...

Chet Baker died on the sidewalk in front of an Amsterdam hotel in 1988; whether he jumped, slipped, or was pushed has never been determined. With his arrival at the hotel, Evan discovers that Ace -- who was staying in Chet's room -- is missing. The only thing Evan finds is his briefcase and notes. Now he has no choice. To find Ace, Evan will have to dig into the mysterious death of Chet Baker... and that takes him into a world he'd rather not visit.

Bill Moody's background as a musician and his talents as a writer have made the Evan Horne mysteries a cult favorite. Investigating the death of Chet Baker, who has a cult of his own, brings out the best in both the author and his pianist sleuth, Evan Horne.

Bill Moody: Looking for Chet Baker. An Evan Horne Mystery. Walker & Co., ISBN: 0802733689 (March, 2002), 253 p., $23.95.
