First of the True Believers

A novel by

THE BEATLES formed in 1959 and became the biggest group in the world. Among other less celebrated Merseybeat groups of the time were The Nighttime Passengers, led by Theo Hennessy, who almost replaced Pete Best as drummer of the 'Fab Four'.First of The True Believers tells of a decade in the life of Theodore Hennessy, intertwined with the story of The Beatles. It begins in 1959 with his first meeting with the beautiful and elusive Marianne Burgess and follows their subsequent on-off love affair and his rise as a musician.

The Beatles provided the definitive soundtrack to the ?60s, and here novelist and musicologist Paul Charles combines their phenomenal story with a tender-hearted tale of sex, love and rock 'n' roll in '60s Liverpool.
