"Spooky.  If I'd known he was watching us all so carefully,

- Tom Paxton, folksinger/songwriter.


Greenwich Village, 1963.  The heart of the folk music revival.  Joe Talley runs The Riding Beggar, an up-and-coming coffeehouse.  When his favorite singer-songwriter is killed on his stage, Joe goes in search of a demo tape, the only existing copy of the victim's songs.  But a murderer may be  looking for it too...

"In the pre-Beatles sixties folk music was, briefly, king. Lopresti paints a loving portrait of those heady days."

-- SJ Rozan, author of Absent Friends
