5*****”WOW!! There are so many suspects, twists, and turns in the newest Georgie Shaw Mystery, I couldn't read fast enough. Just when I thought I had an aspect figured out, new clues emerged. I suspected everybody's actions, motives, and alibis. Then, when all the mysteries are solved, I was surprised and pleased by how convoluted and involved it all turned out to be.”

Georgie Shaw’s boss, Maximillian “Max” Marley, calls her at the crack of dawn worried that his friend, Dave Rollins, has gone missing or worse. Until his recent retirement, Dave, who’s in his seventies and is a master musician and composer, was the Chief Creative Officer of Marvelous Marley World’s Music Group. Lost Hills’ police officers responded to a noise complaint and found the front door unlocked, the house in total disarray, and no sign of Dave. They thought the home might have been ransacked but since there was no blood, they wouldn’t issue an APB even though Max demanded that they did. After hearing Georgie’s side of the conversation, Detective Jack Wheeler, her new husband, immediately got on the phone with the Lost Hills/Malibu Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to see if they would tell him anything since Malibu is out of his jurisdiction. Georgie and Jack had seen Dave the night before at a gala honoring the award winning maestro’s career and retirement. Dave had seemed fine and didn’t mention ant travel plans. Max demands Georgie and Jack immediately go to Dave’s house to meet with Dave’s assistant, Pat Dolan, and the responding police officers. Jack assured Max they were heading to Dave’s house and then quietly told Georgie that a body had been found on the rocks below Dave’s Malibu Cliffs estate. Dave was divorced, with two grown children who adored him, an ex-wife who loved his money, and was known to be a womanizer. The lead investigator, Sgt. Hank Bardot, enlisted Jack and Georgie’s help in questioning persons of interest and Georgie had her competent Executive Assistant, Carol Ripley, do some snooping into the maestro’s past and other people she was interested in learning more about. Both Georgie and Jack are compulsive when it comes to gathering facts and resolving crimes and are determined to identify the maestro’s killer, no matter who it is.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
In this, the sixth book in the series, the unexpected occurs when the music maestro of Marvelous Marley World is found dead on a private beach behind his house the night he retired. And with his death a convoluted tangle of secrets and scandals are found when Georgie Shaw and her husband, Detective Jack Wheeler, start delving into Dave Rollins past. And they find much more than Dave’s proclivity for romance and treble clefs as the story unfolds like an origami box. But leave it to Georgie and her cohorts (including Miles and Ella the Siamese) to solve the mystery and salvage what’s good out of a very big mess.
I am a very big fan of Anna Celeste Burke’s books having read most of them and when I was offered a chance to read an advance copy (as part of Anna’s Angels), I agreed to voluntarily review it. Georgie Shaw’s character continues to develop in ways I’d never guessed and I just love her and “the gang”. I can hardly wait for the seventh book and highly recommend the entire series.5/5
I have to say that I have been reading The Murder of the Maestro, along with the other books in the Georgie Shaw Mysteries, beginning with the first book, and I have to admit that each book can be read as a stand alone or as part of the series. I wanted to get to know each character and the their stories so I know what to expect, but it is not necessary. Anna Celeste Burke covers all of these bases in each of her books, and with each one I read, I discover something new, and I am then wished away to Marvelous Marley World! It is another wonderful read, written by a very talented and fun author! But don't just take my word for it! Get on the Georgie Shaw train today!
Now I leave you with a quote from Georgie, "Where words fail, music speaks." I
This is a clean, well-written cozy mystery with a good plot and interesting characters. There are plenty of plot twists and suspicious activities to keep it interesting. I just love the Georgie Shaw, Jack Wheeler, their crazy Siamese cats, and the gang at Marvelous Marley World.

Looking forward to the next instalment
Dave Rollins had a way with women, but some women just didn’t like his ways! Is this the reason he was killed? Read murder and the maestro to find out! I loved the witty repartee of Jack and Georgie and this book was no different. The author has woven a story that could have been right out of a film noir atmosphere. I give murder of the maestro 5 shining violins for fabulous story writing. This whodunit with recipes gets my vote.
