After a concert, a goddess of rock is shot dead backstage

It’s the finest performance of Rebecca Carlton’s career. The show is dedicated to her father, and the most famous woman in rock does everything she can to honor him. She gives the crowd at San Francisco’s Cow Palace arena four encores before finally retiring backstage. The applause is still thundering through the stadium when Rebecca Carlton is shot dead.

Lieutenant Frank Hastings has been fighting with his girlfriend when he gets the call. Their idol dead, Rebecca’s fans refuse to disperse from the amphitheater, and a riot seems imminent. It takes a special plea from David Behr, the singer’s producer and former husband, to convince the audience to go home. As the crowd files out, Hastings turns to the body. Rebecca Carlton may have been a star, but there was nothing glamorous about her murder.
