The Cutout

about-2 (1)

Does anyone really know who they are, or what their place is in the universe? Dr. I. Raye Collier, a quiet LA psychologist thinks she does, until the grisly murder of her patient, and subsequent death threats from the woman’s LAPD husband, tip her world upside down and have her running for her life. The return to her hometown of Benniston, WA on the shores of the Pilchuk River reveals an underbelly of unsolved murders and disappearances in her community, shocking ancestral secrets, and the ancient shamanic magic that continues to lead her into unsuspected spiritual realms.

What they're saying about
Cynthia Morrow

"Morrow has subtitled this book, "A Blanchard House Mystery."  If she's hinting at the possibility of this becoming a series, it's reason to rejoice.  She has created engaging characters, a wonderful setting, and most importantly, the chops to deliver a grade-A read.  Encore!"

Blue Ink Review, April 2013

"But the best part for me was the guided tour into the world where the right instrument is worth killing for.  Don't be put off by the prologue, read on - when this writer hits her stride in Chapter One she will entertain you no end."

Lisa Murphy, Bookshelves: Mystery/Thriller

"With the dexterity of a trained musician and an ear attuned to human frailty, Morrow has orchestrated a delightful mix of music and mayhem.  Her combination of witty dialogue, tight plot line, and characters real enough to invite over for coffee leaves readers of the first Blanchard House Mystery eagerly awaiting an encore!"

Elaine Woods, author/producer of OpenMic/Local Voices for radio

"She has one of the rarest of qualities you can ever find in a woman or a man, and that is a skill set for extraordinary insight, matched with a disarming and dazzling ability to be articulate."

Darius Gottlieb, cellist, poet, art consultant

"Cynthia Morrow captures the essence of the musician's life.  Her wit and intelligence, coupled with a thorough knowledge of music, makes for a captivating and rollicking fun read."
