New Mystery Novel Takes Place At A Phish Concert

Details surrounding a new novel by author Jurgen Fauth, and one might say they’re a bit… heady?

The new novel is called Heady Cases Vol. 1: The Ashakiran Tape, which takes place at a concert at Jones Beach during Phish’s 2009 reunion tour. According to the description, the novel is the first in a series to feature legendary performances as settings, and this first installment sees a hippie sleuth track down a rare tape as evidence.

You can read the full description below:

When legendary improvisational rock band Phish returns to the stage after a five-year breakup, longtime fan and hardboiled hippie sleuth Quentin Pfeiffer has to be there — even though he is older, wiser, and the father of an adorable baby daughter now.

But not everything is sunshine and rainbows in the freewheeling circus surrounding the band’s summer tour: after the millionaire skipper of a drug-drenched luxury yacht goes missing, Q and his crew are drawn into a dangerous intrigue of dreadlocked dames, shady tape collectors, and spun-out wooks chasing after the long-lost recording of a mysterious late-night jam.

Inspired by Raymond Chandler and set during a series of concerts at Long Island’s Jones Beach amphitheater, “The Ashakiran Tape” takes readers deep into the spiraling ecstasy of Phish’s epic shows and the seductive underworld of the obsessive fans following them.

You can purchase the Kindle version on Amazon right now.
