Library Journal Review

Trying to avoid career assassination by her chief constable, Monika Paniatowski (Death's Dark Shadows) is assigned to cover the Earl of Ridley's rock concert. Who will destroy the festival first? The motorcycle gang hired for security or the Dowager Countess herself? When the body of a tabloid journalist shows up, the heat is turned on high for Monika. (c) Copyright 2014.
