Lost Time

Winona Kent. Blue Devil, $15 trade paper (204p) ISBN 978-17773294-1-9
In Kent’s accomplished sequel to 2019’s Notes on a Missing G-String, musician and amateur investigator Jason Davey has joined a reunion tour of Figgis Green, a British folk band that his parents belonged to and had its heyday in the 1960s and ’70s. In Hampshire, Duncan Stopher, an enthusiastic fan of Figgis Green, approaches Davey, who has a reputation as a sleuth with a gift for resolving missing-person cases. Duncan claims to have a lead on a decades-old cold case—the disappearance of Pippa Gladstone, a 16-year-old who vanished in Spain in 1974 while on vacation with her family. Duncan has found a photo from a Figgis Green concert that shows Pippa in the crowd months after her family last saw her. Before Davey can do much digging, Duncan is stabbed to death, and he becomes the prime suspect. The plot twists are logical, and Kent nicely balances plot and character. More series entries would be welcome. (Self-published)
