Seattle, May 1988: Why would Craig Adler OD? That was what music journalist Laura Benton wanted to know. He’d been clean for months, everybody swore it. And with his band, he was about to sign a major label record deal, the first of the new Seattle wave to break out of the Northwest. But as she digs into the story the pieces don’t quite add up – and then the threats begin. Just a phone call at first, then a bullet and more until dreams turn to nightmares in the Emerald City and Laura finds herself desperately fighting for her reputation - and her life.
