A quest to establish ownership of a song leads Josh Pratt to a forgotten recording studio in the mountains and a nightmarish encounter with a master killer.
Reformed motorcycle hoodlum Josh Pratt (Biker, Sons of Privilege) has had some curious cases, but this is the first time he’s been asked to find a missing song.
After the late, great Wes Magnum wrote “Marissa,”' his band Cretacious rose from small-town Wisconsin to storm the world's stages. It was one of those songs that burrows into the public consciousness, part of our collective memory like “Born to Run” or “Hotel California.”
Marissa Yeager claims Wes wrote the song about her and gave it to her. She has a faded copy of a copy of a deed giving her all rights and royalties, signed by Wes. But she's never been able to prove her claim and now an insurance company is using it as a jingle. Marissa hires Josh to prove she owns the song. Marissa's daughter Melonie, whom Marissa claims Wes fathered, works as a hooker at a truck stop in Kenosha. She's got a pimp named Cooley and hates her mother.
Josh sets out to prove the impossible, embarking on a journey that will lead from the drug-fueled clubs of Hollywood to a tragic encounter with a ninja clan, and finally to a shattering discovery that will set the world of rock on its ass.
