      A young guitarist yearning to hit the big time. A spurned woman looking for revenge. A rock n' roll god with a dangerous history. The Orpheus Industry takes readers on a tumultuous journey where one man's quest for stardom may lead him to sacrifice everything. Caught up in somebody else's game, can Oscar discover who is pulling the strings, and can he bear to give up the dance?
    Set in a parallel world where the Greek gods never went away, this tale of sex, drugs, rock n' roll, mythology and mayhem weaves together the patterns of classical stories with modern urban humour, dark fantasy, eroticism and political intrigue. It's fast-paced and always entertaining, and you won't want to put it down.
