Music tutor by day and tribute band guitarist by night, Matt “Lerxst” Johnston doesn’t have an enemy in the world…so he thinks. One night a pretty young woman tries to smother him in his sleep, and it’s not for the usual reasons a woman would have for wanting to inflict harm upon him! The dream he enjoyed at the time quickly spirals into a nightmare of mistaken identities and nosy investigators who threaten Lerxst’s freedom, to say nothing of coming close to discovering his grandmother’s secret “herb garden.”

Armed only with a guitar and endless questions, Lerxst escapes the discomfort of his beach home and hides out in New York City to learn the true identity of his would-be assailant. Instead he learns more about himself and what he needs to do to survive the next attempt on his life.

And what a long, strange trip it is…

What they're saying about it:

"I just finished this book. It has interesting charactors and moves nicely with surprises that pop up every so often. Many of these are not just coincidents as we are led to believe, but part of a broader story the reader does not find out about until near the end. I read most of it on the train to work and was disapointed a few times when I had to stop reading due to the train arriving at it's destination. I don't think any mystery reader would be disappointed and if your a fan of the band Rush, you'll like the references here."--Amazon Reviewer

"A trite as it may sound, I found myself not able to put this one down. Lively has a gift for mixing suspense with the truly unexpected, often with darkly humorous results. You never quite know what the next page is bringing, but odds are that it will only add to the delightful mix of calamity and hilarity that surrounds our boy Lerxst. Being a quick and engaging read, I don't want to reveal too much in this review, but if seemingly odd bedfellows such as fake limbs and bombs sound intriguing, pick this book up now!!! Truly an engaging and enjoying read."--Amazon Reviewer
