Publisher's Summary

Looking for Lady Dee is a one-of-a-kind story paralleling the career of a second-wave punk band (Thrills) with the disappearance of one of its fans. The story of the late 70s, early 80s popular music scene is the backdrop.

Author Johnny Angel Wendell tells all with pinpoint accuracy and wicked detail. Lurid, vivid, and relentless in its descriptions of rock music's unholy triumvirate (sex, drugs, and the music itself) from an author who lived it and survived, and his cohorts, many of whom did not. The author recounts, as the 23-year-old Johnny Angel, his history in the movement as a sullen, surly squirt leaning very much on negative charisma and impulsive street smarts to get ahead in the demi-monde of Punk/New Wave. And the disappearance of his love, a very good girl gone very bad, Ms. Dee McClain.

As the 50-something Johnny Angel Wendell, he's contacted online by Ms. McClain's best friend from the same music scene, Linda "Vivienne DeMilo" Boudreaux, and together they piece together Dee's story through hard work and a bit of old fashioned chicanery. What happened to their mutual friend leads them to places they never dreamed existed - and in many ways, they thought they'd seen it all! Inspired by writers like Raymond Chandler, Lester Bangs, Bukowski and Dennis Lehane, Looking for Lady Dee is not another middle-aged lookback at a wasted youth, but a hard-nosed twisting and turning tome of discovery and resolution.
