Product description


'A dark and disturbing thriller.'-- "Mystery & Detective Agency"

'A masterpiece.'-- "Michel Bussi, author of After the Crash"

'A vivid and clever story that takes us back to the musical scene swinging Sixties, but has a deeper plot at its heart. Highly recommended.'-- "Promoting Crime"

'A wonderful thriller... I have no qualms about recommending this book to anyone.'-- "Historical Novel Society, Editor's Choice"

'An impeccable tale of posthumous detection encompassing a loving look into the minutiae of rock and the atmosphere and background of some of its golden years. Add to that an exemplary mystery plot and you have a potent combination.'-- "Crime Time"

'Engrossing... This best-selling Belgian thriller, which was short-listed for two literary awards, is a treat for fans of dark mysteries and unreliable narrators.'-- "Library Journal"

'Intricate... Those interested in last century's European rock scene will be enthralled.'-- "Publishers Weekly"

'The crime story...takes on fearsome proportions of international scope...the implications are indeed chilling.'-- "Crime Review"

'The rock-and-roll aesthetic of the plot kerrangs through the swift and exciting prose.'-- "World Literature Today" --This text refers to the paperback edition.
