About the Book

Jonathan Goldman has a problem.  He’s just been ousted from the company he created.  A one hit wonder singer/songwriter and now successful record producer, his life is suddenly thrown into complete and utter turmoil.  His former business partners have only one goal - to ruin his life and do him as much harm as possible.  At sixty, no other label will hire him.  Alone, with only his handful of friends to rally around him, Jonathan Goldman is on a downward spiral from which he may never recover.  And then... people begin to die. 


Written in vivid detail and a unique style, Rewind is a taut, suspenseful, chilling, and often funny look at how a decent person can be dragged through the mud by people who enjoy that particular pastime.  It’s also a colorful peek inside the music business, and the day-to-day process of how albums are actually produced.
