Would someone out there please read this book and let me know:
Just plain crazy?
“Theme Music” is about Dixie Wheeler, who, at 18 months old, is the sole survivor of her family’s mass murder which, by the way, was done by her father, William, before he took his own life. In the paper, she was dubbed “Baby Blue” since that song was playing when she was found. Which leads me to the next question:
Was there some meaning behind this song that I missed?
Dixie, now in her 20s, is reading the paper one day and sees that her former home is now for sale. And for some unknown reason, she decides that it might be a good idea to live there. Her boyfriend and aunt (the one who took her in after the murders) think this is a very, very bad idea. No kidding!
After bringing some old furniture that had been stored by her uncle, her father’s brother, Dixie attempts to re-create her home from when the massacred occurred. She gets some help from the policeman that was originally in charge of the case in the form of crime-scene photographs. Which leads us to the next questions:
Who would do that?
Now a few other characters are introduced: the nosy neighbor, the former love interest who just happen to have been her brother’s best friend who just happen to have been the person that discovered the murders, various family members, and a bull-dog reporter. At this point you would think that clues would be given to answer my earlier questions, but you would be wrong. Which will bring us to my final question:
Why are all of these people entered into the story in the first place?
So let’s circle back around. Poor Dixie is one of the above, but I am still not sure which one.
