Music fans, this is your book! In Lou Crasher, a journeyman drummer turned accidental P.I., Jonathan Brown has created a complex character set on a collision course with a cast of dangerous characters in and around L.A.'s music scene. With the pace of a blast beat, Crasher rumbles with a music theft ring, seedy drug dealers, and select members of L.A.'s elite, all while falling for a beautiful woman he is determined to help. Twist after twist, a breakneck pace, and the quick wit of Lou Crasher will have you turning the pages into the night. A wonderful debut.

"Like a quick three-round undercard, Jonathan Brown punches above his weight class and makes us anticipate what he has in store for the main event. An L.A. Private Eye story that fits in with the classics. If you like your justice handed out with a closed fist, you're going to love Moose."
