“Our lives are lived between madness and secrets.” The year is 1978. Arena rock is at its peak, and British rock band Leviathon is at the top of the charts. Carys Sterling, the daughter of Leviathon’s lead singer, Allyn Sterling, is kidnapped. LAPD Missing Persons’ partners for seven years, Sergeant Paul Taglia and Lieutenant Jeff Kincaid must struggle with an unexpected change in their own relationship while searching for clues to the whereabouts of the missing girl. They soon discover Sterling and his guitarist are men with secrets. Was the girl kidnapped for the ransom she can command, or is Allyn’s past coming back to haunt him? Together in the quest for Carys Sterling, the four men must confront ten years of sex, drugs and lies in order to discover the reality of love, trust and mortality. “Our secrets make us who we are.”

* more than 150$ is a direct donation from a supporter of the Rainbow Awards who isn't submitting; while some authors were more than generous, arriving to donate 5 times the suggested amount, being the submission fee a non mandatory and voluntary direct donation, we were struggling to raise the same amount as last year and there is who decided to cover part of it. I thank you for all you are doing, and if you wish to donate to the above links, please drop me a note with your donation and I will update the total.
