Music takes backstage to murder in award-winning author Carolyn Haines’s latest whodunit, Bone to Be Wild.

Sarah Booth Delaney is heartbroken: her fiancé Graf Milieu has decided to move to Hollywood for good, leaving their relationship dead on the vine. Sarah Booth has a perfect distraction, however, in the form of a party her best friends are throwing: the Black and Orange Halloween ball in New Orleans. She plans to dance the night away to the swinging tunes of her old flame Scott Hampton’s blues band.

Now, with the help of Sheriff Coleman Peters and her friends from Zinnia, Mississippi, Sarah Booth must put a stop to a killer who’s bound to strike again.
