Rock-And-Roll Mystery


(NAPSI)—In the ’80s and ’90s, Jimmy Thunder was flying high—as bass player and lyricist for the chart-topping “hair band” Dark Mondays. But times and tastes changed, forcing Jimmy into early retirement, complete with a bruised ego and a years-long grudge against an industry that abandoned him.

So when a record company lawyer shows up on Jimmy’s doorstep, he is less than welcoming. Only when the attorney states his case—that Jimmy’s old friend Kevin is dying, and leaving behind a musical mystery worth millions—is he willing to head back into the world he left behind, and help unravel a puzzle that has baffled fans for decades.

In his journey, Jimmy meets D.L, the self-professed #1 fan of Kevin’s band Cause for Alarm, and the two travel up and down the East Coast—reconnecting with fellow musicians in hopes of piecing together a long-forgotten past.

The two quickly discover that someone is hunting them—someone who knows the truth, and wants it to stay buried. But as Jimmy and D.L. continue on their mission, more secrets are revealed—with intimate truths pulling these strangers together.
