Dekok and Variations on Murder

(Book 23 in the Inspector DeKok series)
A novel by

Rockabilly endures, lives, and thrives due to the great devotion that the members of this culture lay at its cuffed-dungaree-pearl-buttoned-cardigan-sweater altar.

Defined in the 1950s, evolving over the decades, rockabilly has slipped into various cultural niches and displayed its musical and fashionable wares on many a group from purist to psychobilly. Most recently disaffected punks, Japanese hipsters, and Latino youth make up the largest growing contingency. And there's no denying the smooth crossover with the neo-country scene.

With more than 100 photos and illustrations, Rockabilly revels in revealing the history, music, conventions, dress, hangouts, and overall modern lifestyle of this timeless movement. It is a cinch to see why so many claim rockabilly as their cultural calling.

Kurt Ohlen is a rockabilly musician, DJ, promoter and record company owner (Big-K Productions). He lives, teaches and rocks in Denver, Colorado with his wife and children.

Eric Peterson is a full-time writer. He has numerous books to his credit and writes regularly for magazines, journals and newspapers on a variety of subjects including music, trends, travel and business.
