LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Author Patrick G. Zander will be one of the featured authors in the upcoming Los Angeles Festival of Books 2022 with his published book title Madden Falls: A Novel of America and the Devil’s Music. An intriguing case amid the summer of 1962, young Dan Geary, a history professor from Chicago, steps aboard on a journey to recreate the life and strange death of a legendary blues artist, Virgil Thomas. His journey takes him to different states in the United States of America. He will discover a crime beyond his imagination, and see for himself how a racist and twisted system can produce the ultimate evil and even madness.
“A hero’s journey to memorialize the life of a great bluesman takes unexpected turns into the unspoken secrets of the past. This book does a great job of framing political, racial, and musical history through the eyes of a likable and curious protagonist. Greatly enjoyable.”
