ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- It’s 1967 and two Sydney detectives, John and Ray, are in California looking for the missing son of an Australian politician. The trail leads into the summer sunshine of hippie and festival culture around San Francisco and Los Angeles, which the two embrace with enthusiasm, and Warner has fun setting the scene with cameos from musicians of the moment. The son remains missing, along with some young women, and menacing biker gangs move into frame. An enjoyable and relaxing mystery. Craig

Get ready for a wild ride through the Summer of Love with Dave Warner's newest crime novel.

Two Australian police officers travel to San Francisco and Los Angeles in the summer of 1967 in search of a missing young man, only to find themselves fully immersed in the world of music, free love, drugs and hippie counterculture. They soon realise this isn't just any ordinary missing person investigation. A big gig is the perfect place to get away with murder, and their search becomes a thrilling journey through the seamy side of the 1960s counterculture.

This book is not to be missed for fans of gripping crime fiction and rock'n'roll.
