The fourth book in the hilarious and enthralling Vinyl Detective mystery series. "Like an old 45rpm record, this book crackles with brilliance." David Quantick on Written in Dead Wax It's all Tinkler's fault. If it weren't for his obsession with the 1970s electric folk band, Black Dog, none of this would have happened. At the height of their success, the members of Black Dog invited journalists to Holy Island, a desolate island off the northeast coast of England, to an infamous publicity stunt: they burned a million pounds on an enormous bonfire. But the stunt backfired, and tensions between the band members exploded, splitting the band for good, and increasing the value of their final, recalled album tenfold. It is this album that Tinkler's got his eye on. The Vinyl Detective and Nevada accept the challenge to hunt a copy down for Tinkler, but soon realize that the search for this record is going to be their most dangerous yet. Narrowly avoiding a killing spree, negotiating deranged Black Dog fans, and being pursued by hack journalist Stinky Stamner and his camera crew, they discover that perhaps all was not as it seemed on Holy Island--and that in the embers of that fire are clues of a motive for murder...

His first adventure consisted of the search for a rare record; his second begins with the discovery of one. When a mint copy of the final album by "Valerian"--England's great lost rock band of the 1960s--surfaces in a charity shop, all hell breaks loose. Finding this record triggers a chain of events culminating in our hero learning the true fate of the singer Valerian, who died under equivocal circumstances just after--or was it just before?--the abduction of her two-year-old son. Along the way, the Vinyl Detective finds himself marked for death, at the wrong end of a shotgun, and unknowingly dosed with LSD as a prelude to being burned alive. And then there's the grave robbing... But he does find out what happened to the missing child, and it wasn't what anyone expected--or wanted--to hear.

This darkly humorous crime novel set in a Canadian ski town is a “fast-paced thrill ride” (Publishers Weekly). Grey Stevens took over the family business after his uncle passed away, and now grows the best pot in Whistler, British Columbia. It’s called Eight Miles High and the word on the street is it rivals anything on the planet. Happy to fly under the radar in this mountain playground, Grey just wants to take life easy, snowboarding in the cold months and biking in the hot ones. But demand for his pot among the locals and tourists keeps growing. Everybody wants to get their hands on it—including the two rival gangs who come to town to take over the dope trade. When Grey steps in and rescues a girl from a beating at the hands of one of the gang members, he finds himself in the middle of a turf war and a new relationship at the same time. After one of his roommates gets attacked and another goes missing, Grey has to decide whether he’s going to take off with the girl and start over someplace new—or stay and fight for what’s his . . . “The dialogue is some of the sharpest and funniest I’ve seen in any book this year.” —National Post “Kalteis will be deservedly compared to Elmore Leonard, but he is an original voice.” —John McFetridge, author of the Toronto Series “A rollicking tour through Whistler after dark, populated by ski bums and scallywags, gang-bangers and lovable losers on both sides of the law, and written with a staccato, snare-drum energy that keeps the pages turning . . .

The brothers soon find themselves racing across the country to protect their family and save their own skin.Praise for "Good Girls Don't: A Second Power Pop Heist""Lauden sets this crime thriller series to a brilliant soundtrack featuring music royalty. The Beatles and The Who. Lauden reminds you of the songs and lets the tempo take you for a ride. Dwight Twilley, Mathew Sweet, and Raspberries. Each story moves forward like a song. Spanning Austin, Memphis, Hollywood, and back, these books take the reader on a feverishly fun ride through rock & roll history." - Marietta Miles, "May" and "Route 12""Exactly what a rock and roll crime novel should be: No keyboards, no electronic drums, just straight ahead hard-driving story with page turning hooks and a pace that's dangerous enough to dance to."- Tom Pitts, "American Static" "Loved it. Very descriptive, engaging characters, flowed ever so nicely. Plus, as a bonus, it includes references to The Toms, Shoes and Rubber City Rebels. Another slam dunk for S.W. Lauden!"- John M. Borack, "Shake Some Action 2.0: A Guide to the 200 Greatest Power Pop Albums1970-2017""S.W. Lauden has pulled off something remarkable: creating the First Dysfunctional Family of Pop Music. Meet the Sharps, two music-mad brothers, a punk-rock kid sister, and an out-of-the-closet dad who together run a vintage record store, play the nation's dive bars in a touring band, and rip off music memorabilia collectors (hint: they're all millionaire scumbags who deserve to be hit). It's a rock n' roll romp from the opening chord. Only question is, when's the Sharps' next heist-er, gig?"- Rex Weiner, "The (Original) Adventures of Ford Fairlane: The Long Lost Rock n' Roll Detective Stories""A crime-laden romp filled with family and fun.

That's no mean feat." - Dana King, Nick Forte & Penns River Series"Imagine if Bob and Tommy Stinson went on a crime spree. That'll Be The Day is a smart, fun, and focused crime fiction E.P.

Flashing through New York in the late 1970s, No Wave was the ultimate anti-movement. Its bands consisted of untrained artists looking to explode rock and disappear before the smoke cleared. The primary perpetrators all drew on primitivism, performance art, and the avant-garde. But they were best known for short songs and even shorter life spans. No Wave traces the history of this unique movement, from early pioneers like Suicide to Richard Hell, to hidden treasures like Red Transistor and 8-Eyed Spy, to descendents like ESG and Sonic Youth. No Wave is a comprehensive guide to a movement whose influence still resonates today.
