A thriller set in the Toronto music world

Music, fame and magic weave through Matt Cahill's mesmerizing and eerie new literary thriller Radioland. A series of murders are being whispered about in Toronto — a serial killer is prowling bars and nightclubs, searching for prey.

Perhaps it is Kris, a troubled musician whose band has finally made it big when his life collapses around him. Perhaps it is Jill, a sensitive outcast with dangerous magic that calls strangers to her.

As Kris and Jill struggle to make their way, each dealing with their own difficult past, a chance encounter puts them into contact.

Slowly they begin to share their stories, learning more about each other and eventually about the danger that stalks them both. (From Buckrider Books)
