    "An Independent Review..." THIS REVIEW WAS POSTED AT MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWS BY SHELLEY GLODOWSKI. Harry G. Pellegrin is the product of a sixties upbringing in New York City. He earned a degree in music from the prestigious Mannes College of Music in Manhattan in what he jokingly refers to as "museum music." Literature is his second love, and he has written for both music and motorcycle magazines as well as publishing in the mystery genre. He presently lives in upstate New York, and DEEP END is his second Gary Morrissey mystery, following on the delightful LOW END. Gary Morrissey is a session musician who feels that his life has been seriously derailed by the death of a band mate and the rejection of several women in his life. His buddy Dave pulls him into a salvage operation in the "Sound" that yields brass spikes (or are they something more valuable) from the wreck of the "Eddie Fitz," as Gary and Dave refer to it. But the discovery of the... More > body of a gorgeous blond sets Gary on a totally different mission when his old friend/nemesis Detective Brad pulls him into a murder investigation: "Holding the mug by the rim, he gingerly put it down on the stove. 'Well, for one thing, I can't expend any real time chasing clues on cases outside my jurisdiction. They don't appreciate too much initiative on the City's time. Other jurisdictions don't appreciate initiative from outside their departments at all. I could just happen to let you look at the case files as I have them now and you could do the legwork and snooping for me. Listen, I know what you're going to say, you're no pro, but even you have to admit you figured out the Devon Jones/Melissa Tomanelli case pretty well. You managed to stay ahead of O'Brien. Hell, you managed to stay ahead of the whole Yonkers PD. And THAT'S why you're going to take the job.'" Pellegrin sets this mystery thriller between New York City and New Orleans, mixes in music, love, motorcycles, and the angst of life's regrets to produce an amalgam of diverse elements that leaves the reader guessing and fascinated until the very last page. Gary Morrissey is just the right mix of tough guy and sensitive, poetic soul to make him unpredictable and heroic at the same time. Let's hope that Pelligrin eventually gives Gary his soul-mate and fame. Great! -- Shelley Glodowski, Midwest Book Review< Less
