If you haven't bought the book yet, this is the opportunity you've been waiting for!
To live in Los Angeles, you've got to have a side hustle.
David is a music journalist by day who sells drugs to rock stars by night.
When a well known musician dies from an overdose on the cocaine that David sold him the night before he's to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, he'll do anything to prove his innocence - Even if it means sacrificing his job, relationship and possibly his life.
Is there a serial killer on the loose, murdering the world's most beloved musicians and making it look like they OD'd? Or is David's drug-fueled bender warped his sense of reality so much that he can't see the truth?
Based on true events, LA Downbeat, a Sex, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll Murder Mystery, is a whirlwind tour through LA's underground music scene coupled with a steamy romance and a riveting murder mystery.
