The Baffled Beatlemania Caper
by Sally Carpenter

my review:

If enjoyed reading this book. Beatlemania has hit and you are introduced to Sandy Fairfax, former teen idol. This funny , witty whodunit will keep the pages turning. Sandy goes to a fan convention , which is where he really doesn't want to be but he goes nonetheless. So when a murder of a band member takes place, Sandy gets more than he asks for at the convention. Sandy has to try and find out who the killer is before he becomes the next victim. 

In the 1970s, teen idol Sandy Fairfax recorded 10 gold records and starred in the hit TV show Buddy Brave, Boy Sleuth. Now he’s a 38-year-old recovering alcoholic with dead bodies getting in the way of his comeback! An easy gig as the guest celebrity at a Midwest Beatles fan convention turns deadly when a member of the tribute band is murdered. When the police finger Sandy as the prime suspect, the boy sleuth is back in action to interpret the “Beatle-ly” clues and find the killer.
