The Armageddon Rag
by George R. R. Martin




Overview -

"The best novel concerning the American pop music culture of the sixties I've ever read."--Stephen King

From #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin comes the ultimate novel of revolution, rock 'n' roll, and apocalyptic murder--a stunning work of fiction that portrays not just the end of an era, but the end of the world as we know it.

Onetime underground journalist Sandy Blair has come a long way from his radical roots in the '60s--until something unexpectedly draws him back: the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with a band called the Nazg l. Now, as Sandy sets out to investigate the crime, he finds himself drawn back into his own past--a magical mystery tour of the pent-up passions of his generation. For a new messiah has resurrected the Nazg l and the mad new rhythm may be more than anyone bargained for--a requiem of demonism, mind control, and death, whose apocalyptic tune only Sandy may be able to change in time . . . before everyone follows the beat.

"The wilder aspects of the '60s . . . roar back to life in this hallucinatory story by a master of chilling suspense."--Publishers Weekly

"What a story, full of nostalgia and endless excitement. . . . It's taut, tense, and moves like lightning."--Tony Hillerman

"Daring . . . a knowing, wistful appraisal of . . . a crucial American generation."--Chicago Sun-Times

"Moving . . . comic . . . eerie . . . really and truly a walk down memory lane."--The Washington Post
