21899943Title: Death by Didgeridoo

Author: Barbara Venkataraman

Publication Date: November 2013

Description (from Goodreads):

Reluctant lawyer, Jamie Quinn, still reeling from the death of her mother, is pulled into a game of deception, jealousy, and vengeance when her cousin, Adam, is wrongfully accused of murder. It’s up to Jamie to find the real murderer before it’s too late. It doesn’t help that the victim is a former rock star with more enemies than friends, or that Adam confessed to a murder he didn’t commit.



I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

Death by Didgeridoo is a murder mystery of sorts. It’s actually a fun, quick read. Yes, there is a murder, but I didn’t really expect it to be a hardcore murder mystery – how could it be with didgeridoo in the title?

This book contains a cast of colorful characters from Jamie Quinn herself to the former rock star victim. And who could ever forget the sleazy private eye Jamie gets to help her? Once all of the suspects are identified, the outcome is pretty predictable but I still enjoyed Death by Didgeridoo.
