Product Description

Product Description

When the corpse of a Glam Rock guitarist is found hanged by his own fishnet tights, the rock music scene of 1980s London is thrown into panic. As the murders continue, Glam Rock superstar, Stan Buttershaw, recruits a trash pop music journalist, a freelance physicist and a small scruffy dog to try to find the assassin before the assassin finds Stan...

The Glam Assassin is around 79,000 words. DRM-free.

Huw Collingbourne was a music journalist in the 1980s. He interviewed stars ranging from Boy George and Duran Duran to Spandau Ballet and Depeche Mode. A professional writer, he has worked as a columnist, magazine editor and TV presenter. The Glam Assassin is the second in a series of '1980s Mysteries' which brings to life the dazzling music and clubbing scene of London in the early '80s.

More About the Author

Huw Collingbourne is a writer and software developer. He has also, at various times, been a magazine editor, TV presenter and horticulturist (he ran an exotic plant nursery). He has an MA in English and a 2nd dan black belt in Aikido - the latter skill useful when attempting to control his huge, hairy and amazingly strong Pyrenean Mountain Dogs. He teaches Aikido in North Devon.

In the 1980s he was a pop music journalist and he interviewed many of the 'New Romantic' stars such as Boy George, Adam Ant, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Depeche Mode. In the 1990s he published the 'adult humour' magazine, 18 Rated, which was immediately banned by all leading UK newsagents (who obviously failed to see the joke).

He is now writing a series of 'New Romantic Murder Mysteries' which brings to life the dazzling music and clubbing scene of London in the early '80s. 'Killers In Mascara' is the first novel in this series and is to be followed by 'The Glam Assassin'.
