The Guitar Player And The Lady Killer by Zola Lawrence
About The Book:
From the author of Virgins! A Memoir of the Sexual Revolution comes Zola Lawrence's psychological and crime story, The Guitar Player And The Lady Killer: Partially Inspired by the 1976 Chicago Columbo Murders. It isn't a romance, although two couples meet and fall in love. It isn't a thriller, although a few people are murdered. It isn't a hippie chronicle although sex, drugs, rock'n roll, and New Age talk play background in the four lovers' lives. It isn't pornographic, although graphic sexual descriptions appear as character development. So what is The Guitar Player And The Lady Killer? A stirred and mixed blend of making music, making love, and killing others.
This story is different from any other story I have ever read. But, I think different in a good way. There is a lot of drug talk in the book, but that was the times then - in the 70's. I like the dialogue in the book, it makes it more real. The characters are all greatly developed, and all could be someone we know. I like the mystery of this book, wondering what is going to happen next. I could not put this book down. Very nicely done.
