Rock Critic Murders
by Jesse Sublett III
Martin Fender is a blues bassist and part-time detective in the hothouse music scene in Austin, Texas in the mid-1980s. In this complex and quirky novel, desperate rock critics who hold a grudge against Martin's old band are murdered over a missing kilo of cocaine. Real estate scammers, a suicidal guitarist and a homicidal redhead make for a thrill-ride at 120 decibels.
