PRLog - Jun. 25, 2010 - Singer-songwriter Liz Hanlon is about to perform with her band when three teenage girls armed with assault weapons burst into the club. The leader shoots out the video cameras and shouts orders, but Liz, independent and used to running the show, doesn’t like orders.  She makes two attempts to get help, but is caught and beaten. Her life is on the line. The room panics; gunfire shuts it down.  In minutes, two hundred patrons have been stripped of their cell phones and valuables, one man is dead, others wounded, including two of Liz’s friends.  In a final dicey move, Liz outwits the girls by shouting an improvised musical code to her band mates.  The code triggers a call to 9-1-1, forcing the gang into an unplanned getaway—but not before the shooter snaps a belligerent remark letting Liz know this crime is personal.  That’s chapter one of "Harmonic Deception."  

Books and articles often depict musicians as flamboyant and self-indulgent. That’s out of touch with reality.  This book spotlights modern working musicians, who balance rigorous travel schedules, family life, and mortgages with their music and their dreams. The characters are fictional, but they are based on journeymen musicians.  Like many of them, Liz is ambitious, hard working, gutsy, and a terrific talent—characteristics she needs when she faces this life-and-death struggle, and is forced to come to terms with her own feelings of revenge.

BOOK TWO:
In "High Notes Are Murder, " Liz Hanlon chases her dreams in the music business and nearly gets killed.  The talented protagonist strives to build a thriving music career, yet success eludes her until she receives an offer that could propel her to international fame.  Live monthly TV concerts that will showcase her original music and alluring voice.  Finally, her years of struggle are over, or so it seems.  

When her young cousin is murdered, the repercussions of a family tragedy of twenty-five years earlier reach into the present generation, entangling Liz and altering the beliefs she’s held constant since childhood.  She must identify the killer, but to do so opens the mysteries of the past.  The truth could ruin her family’s reputation and put an end to her budding career, yet she is compelled to unravel the facts . . . and willing to accept the result.
