Maxximum Blues has a solid foothold in the Manhattan blues
scene, but Maxx Maxwell (real name: Elizabeth) knows a CD
will make the band irresistible to festival organizers.
Prowling Rooster Records is her label of choice, but when
the CD is nearly finished, producer Rick Schneider
disappearsâ€”and it looks like heâ€™s hooked up with his old
girlfriend, singer-songwriter Brenda Honeycut. Maxxâ€™s
interest in Rick is personal too. Heâ€™s the first guy sheâ€™s
trusted since leaving Sandy, the womanizing guitar player
who broke her heart.
When Maxx searches for the CDâ€™s master in Rickâ€™s studio, she
finds his cherished memento, a framed album cover, knocked
from the wallâ€”and even more alarming, a pool of dried blood.
The next day, she identifies Rickâ€™s body at the county morgue.
The cops believe Rick was pirating CDs and was murdered in a
mob territory battle. Maxx is determined to clear his name
by finding his real killer. Her quest leads her into the
orbit of the temperamental Brenda Honeycut and into the
complicated lives of Rickâ€™s peculiar business partners. And
it ultimately leads her to the sad secret Rick kept hidden.
Maxxâ€™s quest is complicated by a rooster with personality to
spare and by her old boyfriend Sandy, whoâ€™s determined to
win her back.
