Rock Island Rock (A Crossroads Thriller), by Eyre Price
Rock Island Rock is the pulse-pounding second act in the evolution of the Crossroads series, which began with Blues Highway Blues, voted Best Blues Book of 2012 by Blues411.com.
Owing a debt to the mysterious bluesman, Mr. Atibon, reluctant hero Daniel Erickson finds himself back on the run with his lady love, Vicki Bean, and hitman friend, Moog Turner. Now the three are racing to track down the killer of a rock and roll superstar. They travel a violent and dangerous road, littered with obsessive FBI agents, vengeful Russian mobsters, brutal cartel assassins, and psychotic biker gangs. But no matter how fast and far Daniel and company run, there’s no escaping the blood they’ve spilled—and an unspeakable evil waiting for them.
Meet the Author
Eyre Price was born in Syracuse and raised outside of Scranton, but thinks of America's highways as his home. He's travelled the Blues Highway all the way from Bob Dylan's boyhood Minnesota home to Professor Longhair's shrine in New Orleans. With his son by his side, he's made pilgrimages to Graceland, Sun Studios, Stax, and Chess Records. He's stood at the crossroads where legend says Robert Johnson sold his soul and walked the alley between the Ryman and Hank Williams' favorite honky tonk. The result of these travels is BLUES HIGHWAY BLUES, a debut novel that reflects Price's passion for all American music, from the Delta's blues to Seattle's grunge.
Eyre and his wife, Jaime, live in central Illinois (for now) where they are raising their son to have a wandering heart and a musical ear.
