Event description

Join Dave Warner and his guitarist and friend, Tony Durant for an afternoon of music and chat to celebrate his new book “Summer of Blood”.

About the Book:

Two Australian police officers travel to San Francisco and Los Angeles in the summer of 1967 in search of a missing young man, only to find themselves fully immersed in the world of music, free love, drugs and hippie counterculture. They soon realise this isn’t just any ordinary missing person investigation. A big gig is the perfect place to get away with murder, and their search becomes a thrilling journey through the seamy side of the 1960s. This book is not to be missed for fans of gripping crime fiction and rock’n’roll.

The book has music hits and cameo appearances by Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa and Elvis Presley. A playlist and single, also named ‘Summer of Blood’, accompany the book. Both are available on Spotify:
