ULTRA COOL

We're in Newport, home of the famous jazz festival. But this is 1968, the early days, when the festival was more a happening than an event. It was "be there, or be square", and Ric Wasley's "Shadow of Innocence", is definitely not square. Everything's cool, man, as with the summer festival as a backdrop, smart-aleck amateur sleuth Mick and clever girlfriend Bridget seek to take things easy and at the same time clear Mick's Viet Nam buddy's brother of murder charges.

You'll search for a long time before you find a better depiction of the music,sex and party scene of the early seventies. I get the feeling that Ric Wasley was there.

Apart from the atmosphere of Newport and the Folk Festival which infects it every year, Wasley has constructed two excitiing sleuths and a juicy crime for them to solve.

One of the five best mysteries of the year.

Too many characters to effectively track. Many had no real bearing on the story which was rather lame at best. Probably the WORST book I have read in quite a long time. Definitely DO NOT waste your time on this book.

Ric Wasley thrived on music in the sixties and performed as a folksinger and in rock several bands all over New England. He met the likes of Bob Dylan and Joan Baez.

In a recent interview Ric said, I started keeping a kind of a journal of my own 'adventures on the road' traveling around on my motorcycle, playing as a single folk act, and later in a VW Mini-bus touring with my rock band. Equally for
