Just how far will one fan go to prove her loyalty? In her novel He Who Sings Last, Lisa Laird DiRosso expertly knits a blanket of obsession laced with suspicion and murder in a suspenseful crime novel centered on has-been celebrity Jimmy Covelli. He leads a quiet, post-fame existence until some ghosts from his past come back to haunt him after nineteen years, when an unsolved murder case is reopened by a zealous New York detective. Covelli charms and harms wherever he goes, and in his destructive path, he leaves behind a host of resentful family members and brokenhearted fans. Will the detective catch him and be able to prove his guilt? Find out in He Who Sings Last.

If you have ever had a teen idol, and thought the object of your affection could do no wrong-you may rethink that after reading this great new novel by Lisa Laird DiRosso! He Who Sings Last tells the story of a woman who though successful in her career and social life, has never gotten over that first love. Her nearly obsessive crush on a one time very sought-after crooner, Jimmy Covelli still is very much in the foreground of her mind. As a teen, she cherished the memory of getting a photo and autograph from her dream man. She tells herself "It's now or never" and sets out to find the elusive star and confront him face to face, to see if her intuition was as right as she felt it was. She believes Jimmy Covelli IS her destiny.

Now, nearly 20 years later, Miranda Madison finds herself once again in the presence of the man she has adored for much of her life. But she never would have imagined where this obsession would take her. Suddenly she is swept into his world, with a cast of intriguing characters. Miranda soon realizes the old adage is true...BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

This novel takes you on the journey of several key characters....with many a twist and turn. Detective John Vintoni, a cop determined to tackle a cold case involving Covelli, Kat Logan, Miranda's best friend, Justin Covelli, Jimmy's mysterious brother and even Miranda's estranged father become central parts of solving two crimes, one that happened many years ago, and one that has just occured. Their lives suddenly become woven together, and between them, they hope to prove that you can't judge a book by it's cover, and fame and fortune doesn't mean you can get away with murder. Or can you?

Be sure and order "He Who Sings Last"! You will be caught up in the suspense of this fun page-turner, and looking forward to the sequel, too!
