Eurovision weekend is always a good one in these parts, although having something good to read on the side helps. This debut is quite a find.

From the Blurb:

Music promoter Billy Lime is in trouble.

The tour of rock legends, The Pagan Virtue, is the biggest in music history. Their concerts in Australia should be a career highlight if Billy can keep the warring musicians off the drugs, out of the bars and on the stage.

When lead singer Jet Kelly is poisoned, Billy's world starts to crumble.
