I was the father of my Wallah vinyl: I changed his file while he was around drinking tea, and that’s how I know my Argo from my Tempo.And that’s why, when Dr. Walid called me at the morgue to listen to a corpse, I recognized the melody he was playing.Something violently supernatural that had happened to the victim, strong enough to leave his fingerprint, like a recording wax cylinder.Cyrus Wilkinson, a part-time jazz saxophonist and full-time accountant, had apparently fallen asleep from a heart attack just after getting a concert at a Soho jazz club.He wasn’t the first oneNo one was going to let me exhume the bodies to see if they were playing my point of view, he was back to the old field work, from Soho, the heart of the scene.I don’t trust the beautiful Simone, Cyrus’ ex-lover, professional jazz kitten and as friendly as Rubens, portrait, but I need help: there were monsters from the Soho hunt, creatures feeding on this special gift that separates the great musician from someone who can lift a decent tune.What they take is beauty.What they leave behind is disease, failure and broken lives.And as I chased him away, my investigation got tangled up in another story: a brilliant trumpet player, Richard “Lord” Grant – my father – who managed to destroy his own career twice.That’s the thing about the police: most of the time you do it to maintain law and order.Occasionally, you do it for justice.And maybe once in a career, you’re doing something to get revenge.
