The Player’s Encore

by Lorie Lewis Ham

The Player’s Encore is the second book in Joe Cosentino’s Player Piano Mystery series. In the first book, The Player, grade school music teacher Andre Beaufort discovers an old player piano in the basement of his building and has it brought up to his apartment. Much to his surprise, the piano is haunted by Roaring Twenties playboy Freddy Birstwistle, who was the original owner of the house that has been converted into apartments.

by Joe Cosentino

It’s always a gamble writing something new since fans become accustomed to their favorite writers’ series. My fans adore and cherish my Nicky and Noah mystery series, Jana Lane mystery series, Cozzi Cove series, Bobby and Paolo Holiday stories, In My Heart series, Found At Last series, and Tales from Fairyland anthology. So I was nervous about playing with their emotions by not only starting a new series but also entering into a new world for me: the Roaring Twenties period and the paranormal.
