A religious fanatic serial killer, who hates rock music, tries to shut down the concert industry. A group of independent concert promoters hire private investigator Jason Duffy and his staff of former outpatient mental health clients to catch him. The killer believes that God rewards His favorites with the most money, and keeps score of his victims on the back of a dollar bill. Jason uses his background as a counselor and club musician to battle his cleverest and most twisted adversary ever.

The author of the 2010 Mystery/Thriller of the Year, Rock & Roll Rip-Off, once again adds LOL humor in between compelling action scenes. Besides offering readers a backstage pass to the music industry, The Concert Killer brings to light a potentially catastrophic danger that few have ever considered.

Darcia Helle (Thriller Writer) - Goodreads Review

This is the third book in RJ McDonnell's Rock & Roll Mystery series and, I think, the best so far. The plot is intricate, full of possible bad guys, and the 'whodunit' will keep you guessing until the end.

As the title suggests, someone is committing murders at concerts and Jason Duffy is hired to help find the answers. We're brought into the world of concert promoters and band tours as Jason tries to beat the killer to his next stop. Much of the story is told in first person, from Jason's perspective, with an easy shift to the killer's third person POV. I was quickly absorbed in this book and didn't want to put it down.

The Concert Killer has enough background on Jason Duffy and his life to allow it to be read as a stand-alone. However, I would suggest reading the Rock & Roll Homicide and Rock & Roll Rip-Off first, simply because they're too much fun to miss!
