“Hip, sly and engaging, this literary mystery will keep you turning the pages for all the right reasons — the sheer pleasure of the read and the satisfaction of a compelling story.”

— Ellen Sussman, author of New York Times bestsellers A Wedding in Provence and French Lessons

A literary mystery in which Jim Shalabon, a San Francisco rock singer, travels to
London to pay his respects at the cobblestone lane where his band
mate collapsed and died of a supposed overdose. Once there, the unanswered questions around that death start gnawing at him. Jim starts to look for answers and gradually slides into an amateur detective role, making up his style and technique as his case progresses. Along the way Jim learns more than he ever imagined about his fallen friend—and even more about himself.
