Berlin, 1967: four members of the British rock band Pearl Harbor die at the same time but in separate locations. Inexplicably, the police conclude natural causes are to blame. Brussels, 2010: A homeless man is hit by a car outside the Gare du Midi, leaving him with locked-in syndrome, able to communicate (sometimes) by blinking. An Irish journalist's interest is piqued. How did the members of Pearl Harbor die, and how is this linked to the homeless man in Brussels?

Newspapers & Magazines
'A masterpiece.' * Michel Bussi, author of <i>After the Crash</i> * `An impeccable tale of posthumous detection encompassing a loving look into the minutiae of rock and the atmosphere and background of some of its golden years. Add to that an exemplary mystery plot and you have a potent combination.' * <i>Crime Time</i> * 'Engrossing... This best-selling Belgian thriller, which was short-listed for two literary awards, is a treat for fans of dark mysteries and unreliable narrators.' * <i>Library Journal</i> * 'Intricate... Those interested in last century's European rock scene will be enthralled.' * <i>Publishers Weekly</i> * 'A vivid and clever story that takes us back to the musical scene swinging Sixties, but has a deeper plot at its heart. Highly recommended.' * <i>Promoting Crime</i> * 'A wonderful thriller... I have no qualms about recommending this book to anyone.' * <i>Historical Novel Society</i>, Editor's Choice * 'A dark and disturbing thriller.' * Mystery & Detective Agency *
