Read the first three books in the Scott Drayco mystery series — 60% off the print price!

Scott Drayco is not your stereotypical detective.

Trained as a concert pianist, he was forced to give up his dreams of a music career after a violent carjacking permanently damaged his arm. Deciding to follow in his estranged father's footsteps, he became an FBI agent then a private crime consultant, earning the reputation of being brilliant and sometimes unorthodox.

His unusual background, eidetic memory, and chromesthesia—a form of synesthesia where he "sees" all sounds as colors, shapes, and textures—gives him unique tools and insights as he tackles thorny and complex cases others often don't want to touch.

Handsome, yet scarred; brilliant, yet brooding, the same man who once got into the minds of composers to reveal what their music had to say now gets into the minds of criminals to reveal the darkest secrets of their villainous souls.
