A young guitar player from Michigan is summoned to join a band in the seedy L.A. punk scene of the late 1970s, only to learn that his brilliant childhood friend, the lead singer, has disappeared.

Before long, he is pulled into a noir-meets-leather world of sketchy characters on both sides of the law. “B.D. Love paints a gritty picture of Los Angeles circa 1979 with its music dominated by the punk and power pop camps and sundry characters. He takes readers on a sweeping journey from the Hong Kong Cafe in Chinatown to Doug Weston’s Troubador in Hollywood and to the beach where, sadly, his murdered friend died, a crime he reluctantly pursues amidst the beer, whiskey, groupies, gigs, and cocaine.

    A dark and complex murder mystery that perfectly captures the angst of the late-70’s punk scene in LA, (and who knew? in Dallas & Detroit too)! The characters’ attempts to mask their loneliness and desperation with music, sex, drugs, and alcohol brought me back to that scary, exciting time in my life when my desire to find someone who truly loved and understood me seemed both absolutely essential and completely unattainable.

The characters’ attempts to mask their loneliness and desperation with music, sex, drugs, and alcohol brought me back to that scary, exciting time in my life when my desire to find someone who truly loved and understood me seemed both absolutely essential and completely unattainable. B.D. Love’s novel is filled with a desperate longing yearning to be fulfilled along with insightful, sometimes sardonic commentary on the whole crazy punk scene. Bravo!
