Elegy in Scarlet (Scott Drayco Mystery Series)

What if a large part of your past turned out to be a lie?

Crime consultant Scott Drayco is already in the middle of a possible career-ending legal battle when word comes that his mother, who disappeared 30 years ago, is very much alive — and charged with murder. With Drayco's father washing his hands of the matter and police convinced the woman is guilty, everyone tells him he should just walk away from the case and let the chips fall where they may.

Except, Drayco finds he can't leave it alone and is obsessed with uncovering the truth: Is his mother really a killer? Where has she been all these years? And why did she suddenly leave her husband and children to vanish without a trace?

Investigating the murder victim's colleagues, Drayco learns there are plenty who wanted the man dead, including a shadowy stalker who seems to have a mysterious connection to Drayco's mother. As he wades hip-deep into secrets, lies, and cons, he begins to question if the case is all just part of an elaborate scam ... where the only one being fooled is Drayco himself.

NOTE: This is a sequel to book #3 in the Scott Drayco series, Dies Irae, which should be read before Elegy in Scarlet if you want to avoid spoilers!

The Scott Drayco mystery series has been honored by the American Independent Writers, Maryland Writers Association, named Best Mystery in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, and been a finalist for the Shamus and Silver Falchion Awards.

The complete chronology of the Scott Drayco series for reading in order is:

Played to Death
Requiem for Innocence
Dies Irae
Elegy in Scarlet

Praise for BV Lawson's Novels:

"BV Lawson has created a memorable character in Drayco, a concert pianist turned FBI agent, turned crime consultant. He also has the fascinating condition of synesthesia, which not only adds a mysterious depth to his character it is integral to the plot."  Big Als Books & Pals

 "... Kept me guessing until the very end. I'd recommend this book to experienced mystery readers who enjoy wrestling with skillfully placed hints that don't easily reveal their secrets." Long and Short Reviews

"The storyline here is nicely structured, and creatively ties together two murder mysteries, which occurred decades apart. The small town setting is ideal, the lead character engaging, and the supporting cast interesting and diverse." Omimystery News

"Now this story was close to brilliance ... The writing was fluent and the story intriguing, and I loved the end." – IHeartReading Reviews

"Lawson's book was so good, I read it twice from beginning to end...The citizens of Cape Unity are as diverse and multi-layered as any person living in the large cities, and Lawson portrayed them splendidly." - Reader's Favorite Reviews

"A nice tight mystery in a realistic setting. Totally enjoyable." Terrie Farley Moran, author of the Read 'Em and Eat Mysteries

"This the kind of story that DEMANDS your attention. The woven layers of character, plot, theme, and mystery mean that you can't read it fast enough but yet if you read too fast you'll miss something important. Reading BV Lawson books is the best kind of torture. I don't enjoy many Mystery or Suspense novels, but this one takes it. Highly Recommended!"  Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
