Get ready for a wild ride through the Summer of Love with Dave Warner’s newest crime novel.

Two Australian police officers travel to San Francisco and Los Angeles in the summer of 1967 in search of a missing young man, only to find themselves fully immersed in the world of music, free love, drugs and hippie counterculture. They soon realise this isn’t just any ordinary missing person investigation. A big gig is the perfect place to get away with murder, and their search becomes a thrilling journey through the seamy side of the 1960s counterculture.

This book is not to be missed for fans of gripping crime fiction and rock’n’roll.


‘The technicolour evocation of a revolution in music is vividly realised, and Warner’s passion for the artists energises the novel … perfect for readers wanting to vicariously “turn on, tune in, drop out”’. Books+Publishing

‘Told in a stripped down, staccato style, Summer of Blood is a twisty tale full of vivid imagery, violence, moral ambiguity and some astute reflections on the 1960s.’ Canberra Weekly
