The pungent clues, musical cues, ancient traditions, and modern ambitions lead to an unforgettable climax at a legendary New York nightspot. More than just the story of a rock ‘n roller’s quest for greatness, “VAPORIZED” is an international mystery whose central premise is certain to inspire research and spark debate. Readers who are looking for a stimulating story about the gritty New York club scene in the early ʻ80s won't be disappointed, and deep thinkers will be challenged by the subtle social commentary and intricately crafted plot.
