Product Description
Past and present collide when an Alzheimer’s patient’s fragile memory holds the key to solving mysteries dating back to World War II—including a long lost secret love affair.

Music professor Gus LeGarde is just doing a favor for a friend when he agrees to play piano for church services at a local nursing home. He doesn’t expect to be drawn into a new friendship with an elderly Alzheimer’s patient dubbed “the music man” or to stumble across a decades-old mystery locked inside the man’s mind.

Octogenarian Kip Sterling doesn’t know his own name—but he speaks Gus’s language, spouting jazz terms like “cadence” and “interlude” and “riff.” He’s also obsessed with “his Bella,” but nobody knows who she is.

When Kip is given a new drug called Memorphyl, he starts to remember bits and pieces of his life. Gus learns Bella was Kip’s first and only love, but their relationship was shrouded in scandal. Intrigued, Gus agrees to help search for her. Could she still be alive?

Horrified when the miracle drug suddenly stops working and patients begin to backslide, Gus panics. Can he help Kip find his beloved Bella before all the memories disappear?

"Lady Blues is intelligently and tightly written. This is beautiful – evocative, startling, teasing, terse, soothing and suspenseful in turns. Author Aaron Paul Lazar has a wonderfully readable style, empathetic and gentle, but also frank and realistic. The characters he creates are fully rounded, flaws and all, and it’s hard not to be drawn deep into their world with them. Good food and music are recurring motifs throughout the story and so is the Genesee valley. There is so much to admire artistically in this book, and with a catchy cover and a very high standard of presentation, it is a perfectly presented piece of fiction. Very, very highly recommended." Stephanie Dagg, bestselling author of KATIE'S CAKE.

Product Description
The LeGarde Mysteries Omnibus contains the first four books in Aaron Paul Lazar's award-winning Gus LeGarde mystery series.

Book 1. Double Forté - Gus LeGarde's life essentially ended four years ago, when his beloved wife leapt to her death. Today, Gus lavishes love on his family, trying to bury the pain. But trouble arrives when his arrogant son-in-law's business partner goes missing, and Gus's innocent friend is set up to take the fall.

Book 2. Upstaged - When Gus LeGarde agrees to play piano for the high school drama club's production of "Spirit Me Away," a sixties-style musical he wrote in college, he doesn't expect to face a barrage of menacing pranks played on his fiancée Camille and the drama club. Who's sabotaging the show? And what do they have against Camille? Gus must unravel the mystery before the backstage saboteur stakes his final, deadly claim.

Book 3. Mazurka - Join Gus LeGarde in this European rollercoaster ride where he unearths a scandalous family secret linked to a nineteenth century composer. When brother-in-law Siegfried is framed for a neo-Nazi’s murder, they’re plunged into a sizzling cat-and-mouse game where the stakes are lethal.

Book 4. FireSong - What would you do if your country church was hit by a rogue tornado during services? What if the shrieking winds unearthed the bones of a missing parishioner in a nearby wheat field? Now add the discovery of heroin in your elderly minister's bloodstream. When Gus LeGarde is thrown into the middle of the mess, he knows life's finally gone berserk in East Goodland, New York. Join Gus as he's lured into a bizarre network of underground tunnels to expose the most shocking discovery ever to rock the Genesee Valley.

Edward R. Matthews - Mondoweiss

Matthews was roundly blasted by neoconservatives for sounding such a populist message. Now that the Iraq war is being reviewed and re-embraced , he is taking on the neoconservatives hammer and tongs. Last night he was at the porcine theme again, talking about big “pig” donors who “want wars. I’m watching politicians saying what they’re supposed to say in order to win the backing of some wealthy bullying benefactor, someone who wants politicians to do what they tell them to do, do everything they tell them to do – a person we would... All the people we used to call “pigs” want is what they wanted back in the Vietnam era: they want wars…. Wouldn’t it be great for some of the Republican candidates to stand up to the money guys and say: “If you want a presidential nominee who will do what the Bushes did, go from war to war – look elsewhere. Matthews has hinted at the role of the Israel lobby in this mess. Last week, for instance, he said that Jeb Bush was trying to please “a Jewish group with a lot of hawks in the room” when he celebrated the Iraq war. While it is important to separate Jews from neoconservatives (physically, spiritually and intellectually), Alex Lazar at the Center for Responsive Politics says what Matthews does in a report on Lindsey Graham’s backing: “Jewish Conservatives Form... I emphasize Chris Matthews because I sense he’s reached a breaking point on the media silence around these issues. He’s now repeatedly bashed the moneyed neoconservative push for war and also brought Jewishness into it, by which he surely means Zionism. He has made it a point to stress American popular support for Israel, or distinguish the Republican support for the settlement project from the Democratic support for Israel, or describe the wonders of his own trips to Israel, or say that no... But he seems to have snapped on the general hypocrisy surrounding the political question of US support for militarism in the Middle East. and we can hope that in weeks/months/the year to come when the Democrats also disappoint him, he will begin to explain the differences between Zionism and Judaism, and begin to advance the idea that democracy might be a good thing for Israel and... One other point re Matthews. Last night he said that Johnny Carson broke his own vow of silence on talking politics after his neighbor Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1968. he came out for laws against handgun sales on the Tonight Show. Chris Matthews surely loved Bobby Kennedy. Source: mondoweiss.net

    When retired family doctor Sam Moore gets a call from the coroner to come to The Twin Sisters Inn to consult on a murder victim, he's puzzled. Why would Lou call him? He's retired now, and just wants to spend time with his beloved Rachel, his grandsons, and to work in his gardens. Within days, the body count increases and Sam is a prime suspect, so he calls on a peculiar talisman-his brother Billy's glowing green marble-to whisk him back in time in search of clues before the killer strikes again.
