The Sound of Murder
by Cindy Brown
Watching her (Ivy) stumble through the musical while trying to solve her mystery is hilarious.
~A Chick Who Reads
The story is magnetic – it pulls you in and makes you want to keep reading until, like Ivy, you can unmask the killer.
~A Girl With Book Lungs
…a mystery full of fun and humor, with many twists and intriguing mysteries to solve. It’s so well written that I had a hard time putting it down.
As a playwright myself, I am convinced Ms. Brown’s talent with dialogue is because of her theatrical background. Real speech patterns, dropped lines, attention to what is not said, and letting us hear the way Ivy thinks, makes this story fun to read.

If you have a love of theater and mystery, you can’t help but enjoy Ivy Meadows and her friends in the SOUND OF MURDER.

The Sound of Murder
An Ivy Meadows Mystery Book 2
Publisher: Henery Press (October 6, 2015)
Paperback: 256 pages
E-Book ASIN: B0117YNQPS
“This gut-splitting mystery is a hilarious riff on an avante-garde production of ‘the Scottish play’…Combining humor and pathos can be risky in a whodunit, but gifted author Brown makes it work.” – Mystery Scene Magazine (on Macdeath)
All Ivy Meadows wants is to be an actor. And a private investigator. Plus she’d really like a pair of clean underwear, a place to stay since her apartment burned up, and to overcome her fear of singing in public. Also, she’d really like to knock the socks off the big New York producer who’s coming to Arizona to see her in the world premiere of The Sound of Cabaret—featuring singing nuns and Berlin burlesque—at Desert Magic Dinner Theater.
Ivy’s cast mates come through with singing lessons, a pair of granny pants, and a housesitting gig in a retirement community. And her P.I. uncle even assigns her a real case. But all is not raindrops on roses. During her investigation, Ivy clashes with the local posse, stumbles upon a firebug and a snoring pug, and finds herself smack in the sights of a serial senior-killer.
