THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED The morning of February 4, 1959, brought bad news for Sam McCain, rock and roll fan. His musical idol, Buddy Holly, had perished in a plane crash. But the day also brought bad news that hit closer to home in Sam's small Iowa town. A local couple was dead, too--in an apparent murder-suicide with some disturbing loose ends. For Sam McCain, P.I. and lawyer, that means an investigation. And McCain is about to find that behind the white picket fences of Black River Falls, there's a flip side to the American dream... "Should be a candidate for net year's Edgar Award." Los Angeles Times "Much more genuinely affecting than many a more high-profile thriller." Wall Street Journal "Gorman knowingly invests his whodunit with all the right retro cultural touches...but by not ignoring the racism and sexual taboos of the time, he elevates The Day The Music Died to a story with bite and substance." Chicago Sun Times "One of the most original crime writers around." Kirkus Reviews
