Can Viva Winter find the truth before it’s too late?

The Coyote Canyon Ladies Ukulele Club is gearing up for a ukulele competition when their flamboyant star player, Kiki Jacquenette, is found strangled to death with a G-string. Not only is a first place win in jeopardy, the entire folk music festival is put on the verge of collapse. A murderer on the loose is sure to keep tourists away.

Chronicle editor Viva Winter had hoped to make Coyote Canyon the folk music capitol of the Colorado mountains, and was also trying to raise money to help repay the townspeople bilked by her father’s phony investment scheme. With much to gain by Kiki’s death, Viva soon comes under suspicion, so she must uncover the truth before her whole life turns into one sour note, and a tourist trade boom falls flat.


"Death by G-String has a great sense of place and a luxurious cast of quirky characters, but it's Viva Winter--battered but unbowed by all life has thrown at her--who makes this novel such a treat. Come for the mystery, stay for the ukes and lose your heart to Viva!" — Catriona McPherson, Best-selling Author of Dandy Gilver and A Spot of Toil & Trouble

"Death by G String is fun, hard to put down and relaxing--just like the ukulele! It is a perfect accessory (or gift) for anyone who loves to play." — Heidi Swedberg, Ukulele teacher and Sukey Jump Band musician

"Death by G-String is a delightful mystery that will keep you guessing! C. C. Harrison is a master of setting the scene and making the reader feel like part of the action. This is the perfect cozy mystery in which to lose yourself. I loved this book! It was pure page-turning enjoyment from cover to cover!" — Pamela Blair-Sheldon, North Valley Regional Library Branch Manager

"I've always enjoyed the smooth and romantic sounds of the Ukulele...never thinking it could become a tool of murder! But that it does in a fast-paced, character driven and realistic story which unfolds in fast page-turning fashion in Death by G-String. A small town turned upside down by a crime that just doesn't happen in a peaceful place like this one. But it did...and the resolution will catch you by surprise. A great and fast read!" — Paul Lisnek, Political Analyst and host of podcast of WGN radio and Politics Tonight

"In Death by G-String, C. C. Harrison brings a small western town to life with characters as colorful as the mountains. Folk music, a New Age retreat, murder, and a handsome true crime reporter who may not be what he seems combine in a perplexing puzzle packed with twists that will keep you guessing until the end." — Alexia Gordon, Author of Murder in G-Major and the Gethsemane Brown Mysteries
