Back in London's swinging 60's, Steve Cook was teen idol number one. But that changed when a sixteen-year-old fan was found dead in his hotel room bed. Steve's career came to a crashing halt after he was dumped by his record company and arrested. Now, in 1978 San Francisco, Steve works construction, still dreaming of a comeback. Until his eleven-year-old daughter is kidnapped. Steve turns to one person for help: Colleen Hayes. She was quite a fan herself, back in the day. And she knows what it's like to be on the wrong side of the law and live in judgement for the rest of your life. It doesn't take Colleen long to realize something fishy is going on with the kidnapping of Melanie Cook. What transpires is a harrowing journey through a music industry rife with corruption and crime. Colleen's search takes her through San Francisco's underbelly and all the way to 70's London, where she discovers a thread leading back to the death of a forgotten fan in Steve's hotel room.
