In minutes, the room is chaos and gunshots.  Liz's agent is dead, a renowned composer near death, and Liz is fighing for a way out.  She wrestles with the shooter, quickly discovering that the robbery is a ruse.  This crime is personal and she is the target.

Harmonic Deception

Harmonic Deception is the "Perfect Book Club Book". We played Barbara's " High Notes are Murder Soundtrack" CD as we discussed the dramatic attack at the nightclub and how Liz bravely improvised a way out. Hearing Barbara singing during the meeting was almost like she was with us. And by the way, the music is as good as the book. --- Kentucky Lady, Amazon Reviews


Harmonic Deception is action-packed and witty, with a revelation after the revelation! The performer's side of the biz in on target. Impossible to put down! -- Jazz Vocalist Weis Norberg, Amazon Reviews


High Notes Are Murder is a fascinating, plausible, highly recommended mystery. Barbara Reed is a Los Angeles musician with twenty years of experience.  She does a marvelous job of describing today's music scene. She spins a fascinating and plausible tale around Liz, which puts her squarely in the middle of the action.

High Notes Are Murder

Chase your dreams . . .


Singer-songwriter Liz Hanlon is unstoppable in her quest for a successful music career.  She’s been stuck in low-paying piano dives for ten years, her expressive melodies and lyrics sidelined as she’s struggled to make a living . . . until now.


Finally, she's offered a chance for international fame through live TV concerts.  Recalling her father’s advice to chase her dreams, she believes her troubles are over.  She couldn’t be more wrong. 


Preparing to broadcast her music to the world from the stage of a popular Los Angeles nightclub, she discovers the body of her young cousin at the foot of the stage.  


The next days are a dizzying whirlwind of frightening events, each one punctuated by a half dozen eerie cards she receives that threaten her life.  Her big chance is ruined, her career on hold.  Now she chases clues instead of her dream, but once she connects  the killer to a mob rip-off of twenty years ago, her revelation creates another problem.  Revealing the killer’s identity also connects her favorite uncle to the same scandal.  Her family name, as well as her own, could be ruined before her career has even started.
