The Price of Fame - Rowena Cory Daniells

An inexperienced director looks to do a documentary about a famous eighties band. A group with a nasty past involved as one of the singers was murdered on the cusp of them signing a record deal. All centred in low-rent St Kilda with the drug dealers and prostitution and rather fine hamburgers that entailed. That isn't all though, the director and her ex-fellow student and now colleague cinematographer are living in an associated house. A haunted house. So add ghosts to investigations of missing murder witnesses with tell all books and the true relationships between the various band members (two men, two women) and you have a very good and interesting novel. A very pleasing discovery. 4 out of 5
