Ballad of a Dead Nobody

A novel by

Elly Astoria had a miraculous musical talent. As a little girl she taught herself to play guitar and keyboard so that she could feed herself and her junkie mother. One rainy night she was spotted singing and playing by the founder of an indy womens band. Later, cleaned up and better fed, she caught the eye of her future manager and his creepy sister. It should have been a rags-to-riches story. Instead Ellys career was cut short by her perverted and grisly murder.

Years after her death it looks as if Ellys life has been overlooked. If anyone deserves rediscovery and a biography, its Elly. Clearly there is a story to be told and a mystery to be solved. But how?
