When Tiger Edwards, bass player for the rock band, The Sticks, is found dead of an overdose of alcohol and heroin after a sold out concert, everyone is shocked. Tiger had been clean of drugs for over thirty years. At first, it looks like an accident, or suicide perhaps, but things are not always as they seem. When the police confirm that they found no drug equipment in the room you would expect to find when someone overdoses and dies, the death becomes even more mystifying. Charlotte Hart gets a chance assignment with Melody magazine, which introduces her to the sex, drugs, and rock and roll world of the music business and plunges her into a murder mystery that have left the police baffled. Join Charlie and the colourful array of characters she meets, as together they try to solve the mystery of Tiger's death. Charlie's suburban life changes to one filled with aging rock stars, a handsome bodyguard, a punk-rock grandma, and the obnoxious Sticks manager, who's 'helping' the London Metropolitan Police, Yew Tree Investigation with their inquiries into alleged sexual activities with underage girls.
Charlie finds herself digging into a history of crime that goes back more than thirty years. The story has moments of comedy and tragedy that will leave you laughing and crying, but most of all wondering: who killed Tiger and why?
Teddie Dahlin was born in Norway in 1961, and moved to England at the tender age of four, when her mother married a man from Liverpool. They lived in Yorkshire for ten years and moved back to Norway in 1975, at the age of fourteen, to the town of Trondheim, which is mid-Norway. Her fluency in English led to her becoming the interpreter for the Norway leg of the 1977 Sex Pistols Scandinavian Tour. She developed a short relationship with Sid Vicious and has since written her account of those days in the book A Vicious Love Story: Remembering the Real Sid Vicious, released in January 2013. Teddie Dahlin's second book, Fast Living: Remembering the Real Gary Holton, was released in August 2013. A true rock 'n' roll casualty, Gary Holton packed a lot in to his 33 years, including fronting the Heavy Metal Kids for seven years and is probably best known for his role as Wayne Norris in the TV series Auf Wiedersehen, Pet. Fast Living: Remembering the Real Gary Holton is a compilation of friend's memories of the deceased actor and entertainer. Gary Holton spent some time in Norway whilst teaming up with Casino Steel (previously of the London based punk band The Boys) and had a number one success in 1981. Teddie came to know Gary as a friend at that time. Drawing on her own recollections and first-hand accounts of others who knew him, Teddie completes the picture of a man who never outran his demons but who, in the process, gave a lot of pleasure, and some little anguish, to those who surrounded him. Teddie Dahlin has released her first crime/fiction book titled Access All Areas, on 1st November 2013. It is a murder/suspense story that takes place in the music business. It is the first in the Charlie Hart Crime Series. The second in the Charlie Hart Crime Series, Project Polina, will be released during early spring 2014. Teddie Dahlin lives with her family in Oslo, and in addition to writing books, also works as a freelance music journalist and has a number of interviews and articles to her name. She has interviewed several well-known entertainers in the music business such as Suzi Quatro and Jaz Coleman (Killing Joke) to name two.
