Reduce da un esaurimento nervoso, George Weaver ha preso una stanza in un hotel di Taos, nel New Mexico, per rimettersi in sesto con un periodo di riposo. Ma il destino si presenta alla sua porta nei panni di un amico giornalista che si occupa di omicidi irrisolti. Da quelle parti, otto anni prima, una ragazza è stata assassinata e il presunto colpevole è sfuggito alla giustizia. Lei si chiamava Jenny Ames e lui Nelson, qualcuno l'aveva visto inseguirla con un coltello… A George il medico ha raccomandato di starsene tranquillo, non di mettersi a indagare su un crimine da cui si potrebbe ricavare magari un articolo ben remunerato. E tuttavia un po' di soldi gli farebbero comodo.

Era il primo caso di omicidio al quale mi capitava di dover lavorare, e probabilmente avrei perduto questa occasione se, quando arrivò la chiamata, avessimo saputo che si trattava di omicidio. È sempre il mio capo, Hetherton, a incaricarsi personalmente dei casi importanti, quei pochi casi importanti che si possono verificare in una cittadina. Io mi incaricavo del resto: riunioni parrocchiali e simili. Molto eccitante davvero…

Fredric Brown: “When I read Murder Can Be Fun, I had a bottle of bourbon on the table and every time Brown’s hero took a drink, I had a snort myself. This is a hazardous undertaking when in the company of Brown’s characters, and, I’ve been given to understand, would have been just as dangerous around the author himself. By the time the book was finished, so was I.”

Hit Men: Power Brokers and Fast Money Inside the Music Business by Fredric Dannen
English | July 2, 1991 | ISBN: 0679730613 | 216 Pages | PDF | 15 MB

Copiously researched and documented, Hit Men is the highly controversial portrait of the pop music industry in all its wild, ruthless glory: the insatiable greed and ambition; the enormous egos; the fierce struggles for profits and power; the vendettas, rivalries, shakedowns, and payoffs. Chronicling the evolution of America's largest music labels from the Tin Pan Alley days to the present day, Fredric Dannen examines in depth the often venal, sometimes illegal dealings among the assorted hustlers and kingpins who rule over this multi-billion-dollar business.

Soul Brother Number One," "the Godfather of Soul," "the Hardest Working Man in Show Business," "Mr. Dynamite" those are mighty titles, but no one can question that James Brown earned them more than any other performer. Other singers were more popular, others were equally skilled, but few other African-American musicians were so influential over the course of popular music. And no other musician, pop or otherwise, put on a more exciting, exhilarating stage show: Brown's performances were marvels of athletic stamina and split-second timing.
