    3. Originally posted at rockread.westofmarsI was a huge fan of RJ McDonnell's first book, Rock and Roll Homicide. It's a definite West of Mars recommended read; there's so much great stuff happening in it. So I was excited when I was told by friends that RJ's second book, Rock and Roll Rip-Off was even better.

    8. Rock & Roll Rip-Off by R. J. McDonnellAn ex-rocker, turned mental health professional (seems oxymoronic) turned, hard nose private eye finds himself dodging bullets while trying to run down a collection of music memorabilia. Jason Duffy, the main protagonist, is likeable in multiple areas. He is intuitive and creative which aids his detecting. Personally, I thought his strong suite was his compassion and acceptance for his former mental health clients. He pulled them into his life and provid [...]
