Book Review-You Say Goodbye-Keith Steinbaum

Monday, March 25, 2019

I remember reading the first of this author's books and loving it--it was called The Poe Consequence. When the author contacted me to read and possibly review his second novel-of course I said yes!

Sean didn't think he had anything going for him-he was depression personified--his Mom was definitely not helping matters. Sean had one hit song--that was it--he now worked part time in his Dad's car dealership. The only thing that kept him going was his girlfriend-----when he came home after a bad night---he found her murdered.

The detective was bound and determined to get Sean to help--you see this serial killer had been dubbed the Beatles Song murderer. The detective was sure that Sean and his girlfriend knew this person. Sean began to work with the detective--he really did want to know who murdered his only reason for living.

He had written a suicide note--and had a bunch of pills ready to swallow--when he noticed a new neighbors young daughter sitting outside with a lemonade stand. She had cancer and had more then a will to live!! She dubbed Sean Mr. Music-she had a nickname for everyone she liked.

They became close friends and Sean finally agreed to teach her how to play the guitar--there were stipulations of course-I loved them and so will you!

Sean's big time lawyer brother was trying to get him to allow his song to be used in a commercial-he kept refusing--until he found out something--

You will not believe who the murderer turned out to be-I actually did not guess it either--

There is much good in this novel and it has a beautiful and happy ending!!

I received an ARC PDF copy of this book for possible review. All opinions are mine and mine alone!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

After a temperamental meltdown on stage, Sean Hightower, a regretful and resentful “one-hit wonder” rock musician hoping for a comeback, returns to his girlfriend’s condo seeking comfort from the woman he loves. But after letting himself in, he discovers her naked body on the bed, murdered from a bullet to the head. When the police detective arrives and sees the two taped pieces of paper on the wall with the word, “hello,” on one and “goodbye,” on the other, he realizes that the renowned serial killer, The Beatles Song Murderer, has struck again. In the days that follow, he reaches another conclusion—the Beatles Song Murderer is probably somebody Sean knows. Now the detective needs Sean’s help to find the killer.

About the Author: (from the Author's Website)

I grew up in Los Angeles and still live there today, so I certainly know the city well enough to make it the backdrop of my two novels, The Poe Consequence and You Say Goodbye. Having started as a poet during my high school years, I eventually branched out as a song lyricist with limited professional success until awareness that I wanted to write a story suddenly washed over me one day like a soft, encompassing waterfall. Working through the number of years and hundreds of hours necessitated by each story presented a tremendous challenge, but through the maze of difficulty came the rays of achievement. Whether readers of my books enjoy them or not, to borrow a sports analogy, I left it all out on the field.
