More than 300,000 people sweltered in the San Bernardino desert at the 1982 US Festival featuring Tom Petty, the Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac, and Jackson Browne, among others. David, a therapist and professor, was there to support a nervous client, a musician who was going to perform at the festival. Indeed, he had reason to worry.

This mystery rocks!

If you love music and mysteries, this book is for you. Set at a rock festival in the 80s, this clever novel weaves together the backstage world of rock and roll with a rousing whodunit. Tons of great references to the bands and culture of the time, you'll be kept guessing as to who the murderer is. Take a ride with this interesting and amusing protagonist, a psychotherapist to a rock star with problems of his own. You'll be hearing songs in your head as you listen to the narration by Jake Robertson. He makes the scenes come alive, sweeping you along until the big reveal.

Excellent all around

Great listen. The narrator makes this fun, musically referenced and mystery challenging book a delight. The story takes place at the US Festival in the early 80’s and a lot of classic bands were playing and there are some inside stories told. But, the main story is a backstage mystery that had me stumped. This series is skillfully written with much humor and insight into the human condition. Terrificseries.

A trip down music and love lane

David Unger was able to help me imagine what I missed at Woodstock in the 60's with his in-depth knowledge of brilliant song writers and performers along with the groupies and the drugs that held us together in a time we questioned everything.
If you are a fan of Hunter Thompson, Jackson Browne, The Dead or any rock music, along with fantasies of romance you will love this mystery.
As a therapist, I enjoyed the character of David using known therapeutic techniques to gather information while joining with the cast of characters....techniques that also work to get closer with a love interest.

The book is a fun and an easy read as the clues unfold. Enjoy!
