Cincinnati, just before rock changed from spandex to flannel…

Synopsis: Kenny Rockford has the best gig in town, drumming for local heroes The Selekt. The pay’s OK, but the benefits are amazing. One benefit is Jean Cassidy, the girl at the club with a taste for the loud and fast. And they’re making beautiful music together—until Kenny learns about Jean’s husband.

From there on, it’s lust, murder and madness, at a tempo even Kenny may not be able to match.


“I tried to read this slowly to prolong the pleasure, but found it impossible. The blend of obsession, darkness, and intriguing character and plot, as well as seamless literary style, wouldn't let me go.” —Edgar Award-nominated crime novelist Vicki Hendricks

Broken Glass Waltzes is as relentless as Tony Iommi’s guitar and pounds at the reader’s brain like Dave Lombardo’s machine gun drums. A heavy metal noir ride replete with sex, drugs, rock n’ roll—and a murder conceived in insanity—this wicked gem moves at a breakneck pace from the moment Cincinnati’s number one metal drummer meets the girl of his nightmares to the shocking climax. Two sets of devil horns, high up.” —Ed Kurtz, author of Bleed, Control, and A Wind of Knives
