About This Book
Book 2 in the “Blue” mystery series, Music of the Spheres catches up with Johnny “Blue” Heron, who is down once again. That doesn't stop him from attacking a seemingly impossible case, not believing the rumors and not backing down from the threats. One more time, he fumbles and fights his way to the truth behind blackmail, infidelities, and murder . . . and a really good martini.
From the Novel
"When death looks you in the eye he challenges you to look back. He dares you to fall back on the normal excuses to try and ignore him. Just try telling him about reincarnation, rebirth, heaven, the afterlife, alternate universes, universal consciousness, religion, infinity, eternity, insanity. He forces me into the present, into the boredom of logical life, to focus on every detail. How I place the key into the ignition, start the car, turn the wheel to pass the Bistro, look at it, pretending it is the same as it was when I passed it a couple of hours ago. I perform: I steer, I dim my lights for an oncoming car, I’m nice to someone I will never know."
About the Author
Michael Burke has traveled through a number of careers since he graduated from college. The first was as an astronomer, working at observatories in the U.S., Hawaii, and Iran. He then went back to school to obtain a Master’s Degree in City Planning. He worked in New York City’s Planning Department and later became an Assistant Professor at Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture and City Planning. Michael changed direction again when he found a loft in Soho and began to paint. He has been an artist for more than thirty years—painting, drawing, and lately producing aluminum books and sculpture. He has exhibited his work extensively in the U.S., Japan, and Europe. Although he has written and published poetry over the years, Michael has only recently arrived on the mystery scene. Swan Dive, the first book in the “Blue” series, appeared in 2009. Out of Mind, the further adventures of detective Johnny “Blue” Heron, is the third book in the series and appeared in 2014.
