Meet Sam Chauvel, private investigator. He's tough. He's perceptive. He's sometimes easily confused.
He's looking for Wil Dreamsworth, an ex-pop star last seen on Countdown in 1980. With a little help from his friends and occasionally helpful strangers, Sam is scouring the backstreets and boulevards of Melbourne. Dreamsworth proves as elusive as a number one hit, slippery as a seedy business manager, and as forgotten as possible. While bending the law, recovering from hangovers and sitting around on stakeout, Sam is finding there is more to life, truth and concept albums than might reasonably be expected.
This hilarious page-turning mystery is required reading for anyone who ever wanted to be something, or to find something, or just remembers listening to pop music late at night and believing every word.
Whoops - sorry, so far I've not added any other entries about this book to the website (yet).
