 About the Book 

A cult on every corner and a sect on every street... Throughout the 60s, Nicky Cavell was the unofficial PI to the counter-culture, and knew everybody from the Beatles to the lowest street-dealer. But now the decades almost over, the daydreamsMoreA cult on every corner and a sect on every street... Throughout the 60s, Nicky Cavell was the unofficial PI to the counter-culture, and knew everybody from the Beatles to the lowest street-dealer. But now the decades almost over, the daydreams going sour, and Cavells in Los Angeles, minding an alcoholic rock star. Its a cushy number - at least, until a teenage girl asks tries to emasculate him. Soon hes on the seamy side of Hollywood, in a world of crank religions, crazed disciples, and gurus greedy to co-opt him for the cause. First theres Courtnay, with his bloated ego and his eye for California real estate- then Charlie, a vicious little wild man who looks like Jesus but acts like Genghis Khan. Caught in the middle, Cavell has to sort the innocent from the corrupt, the dangerous from the merely mad. And he doesnt always get it right...
