Staff Reviews

I love Junior Bender and I love Timothy Hallinan for creating him. This outing has Junior doing a "favor" for the most powerful gangster in LA. Not something he can turn down. On top of that it is on a rare long weekend that he has his daughter Rina staying with him. Lots of complications, lots of laughs. Loved it!

Los Angeles burglar Junior Bender is reminded that rock and roll will never die (no matter how fervently he wishes some of it would) when Hollywood's most dangerous geriatric mobster, Irwin Dressler, hires him to solve a rather unharmonious problem.

Dressler's old gangster colleagues have put together a national tour of once-popular rock bands: three nights of concerts by big shots from the '60s and '70s who are now hoping for one more gasp of glory with this nostalgia parade. The Rock of Ages tour has already proved itself to be anything but a love fest. Plenty of the bandmates have been feuding for forty years, and drugs and bad behavior have created a plethora of medical and legal problems. Plus, there were the two near-fatal accidents that might have been attempted murders. But all that's nothing compared to Dressler's real problem: one of his own colleagues is using the tour as a front to steal his money.

Now the tour has pulled into LA, and Junior has two days to figure out who took the missing cash. To make things worse, Junior is saddled for the weekend with his teenage daughter, who lately has been much, much too interested in how her father earns his living. Can Junior recover Dressler's money, prevent a murder, talk his daughter out of pursuing a life of crime, and somehow survive all that bad music?
