Description

"The best novel concerning the American pop music culture of the sixties I've ever read."--Stephen King
From #1 "New York Times" bestselling author George R. R. Martin comes the ultimate novel of revolution, rock 'n' roll, and apocalyptic murder--a stunning work of fiction that portrays not just the end of an era, but the end of the world as we know it.
" "
Onetime underground journalist Sandy Blair has come a long way from his radical roots in the '60s--until something unexpectedly draws him back: the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with a band called the NazgUl. Now, as Sandy sets out to investigate the crime, he finds himself drawn back into his own past--a magical mystery tour of the pent-up passions of his generation. For a new messiah has resurrected the NazgUl and the mad new rhythm may be more than anyone bargained for--a requiem of demonism, mind control, and death, whose apocalyptic tune only Sandy may be able to change in time . . . before everyone follows the beat.

"Daring . . . a knowing, wistful appraisal of . . . a crucial American generation."--"Chicago Sun-Times"
"Moving . . . comic . . . eerie . . . really and truly a walk down memory lane."--"The Washington Post.
