about this item
Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Ron Pigpen” McKernan, Chris Bell, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouseall of them iconic rock stars, all of them dead at age twenty-seven. How could a group of great musicians all die at the same age? All evidence points to the deaths being unrelated, but are they really? Gantry Elliot is a relic of rock and roll era still writing for Rolling Stone magazinecovering classic” rock and roll and struggling for relevance in the age of hip-hop and rap. Even though he’s an encyclopedia of music trivia, Gantry can’t compete with the new kids on the block and is now reduced to watching the clock tick down on his once dynamic career. But Gantry’s vast knowledge may be the only thing that can put some sense into the mystery of 27. When anonymous packages start showing up at his office and then home, Gantry initially shrugs them off as another Club of 27 conspiracy nerd trying to get attention. But as the clues became more intimate, more personal, he realizes this is not a game: someone knows the truth, and the truth may put Gantry’s life in serious danger. Aptly called, 'The Da Vinci Code' for rock and roll fans,” author Christopher Formant has written a terrific debut novel that creatively and deftly takes readers on a dangerous cold case hunt to uncover the mystery behind these deaths. Truth or fiction, lies or conspiracy, 'Bright Midnight' will keep you guessing until its final chorus.
