Jürgen Fauth, the author of Kino, has released his newest novel, a detective mystery set during Phish’s 2009 return shows at Jones Beach on Long Island.
The book, The Ashakiran Tape, follows “hardboiled hippie sleuth” Quentin Pfeiffer as he searches for a legendary tape of a secret late-night Phish performance. The story is volume one in a planned series called Head Cases, with each book set at a different historic concert.
From the author:
But not everything is sunshine and rainbows in the freewheeling circus surrounding the band’s summer tour: after the millionaire skipper of a drug-drenched luxury yacht goes missing, Q and his crew are drawn into a dangerous intrigue of dreadlocked dames, shady tape collectors, and spun-out wookies chasing after the long-lost recording of a mysterious late-night jam.
The Ashakiran Tape is now available as an ebook, with the print edition coming soon.
