Hopefully, by mid-June, Part One of The Murder Rule will be completed (and then comes the editing part). It is mostly completed already. Part Two, featuring roadie Bobby Jones, is mostly completed but I need to manuscript the climax and leading up to the climax. Then comes Part Three and maybe, Part Four. The plan is to complete the entire novel, The Murder Rule, before the end of 2022.
This post is the one that leads up to the climax of Part One of The Murder Rule, where narrator and pop-culture pundit Lloyd Denholm begins to come to the conclusion through investigations as to who murdered fictitious rock star Denny Spradlin in early 1996.
Spradlin’s band mate Blake Fenmore has requested of the pop culture magazine X-Zine to have pundit and free-lancer Denholm to find out ‘who done it’ and how. The request was made in Spring, 2005. In this snippet, Denholm meets with Blake at his rock house in the Lake District of northwest England. Below is the snippet, copyright © 2022 by Deborah Lagarde:

In Part One is listed several rockers and others who ‘committed suicide’ (or were murdered, and there is plenty of evidence to back these claims as the victims tended toward exposing the evil agendas they discovered in the music industry), including the so-called ‘27 Club’ highlighted by Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, and more recently, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, within months of each other, for planning to aid children harmed by pedophilia and trafficking. And it is not a coincidence that right after Swedish DJ Avicii created and released a video, ‘For a Better Day,’ that exposed child trafficking rings, he was also ‘suicided’ by ‘hanging from a doorknob.’
The post began with the opening line of the third novel in The Prodigal Band Trilogy, The Prodigal Band: “If dead rock stars could talk.”
If these dead rock stars could talk, we would know a lot more about the evils being perpetrated by the rulers of the industry, and the world itself.
The notion of entertainers in and out of the music industry being ‘suicided’ or otherwise punished for resisting and exposing the evil in the industry really didn’t hit me until after the first two trilogy novels, Battle of the Band and The Prophesied Band, were published in the latter 90s. Right after The Prophesied Band was published, we got dial-up internet, which provided me with research material to help me finish the trilogy, but it took years of research (among other things which kept me busy and putting off the third novel for nearly 20 years) to realize that the idea of ‘if dead rock stars could talk’ needed to be placed front and center within the plot. Further, if the prodigal band realized they were being targeted by the elites for turning against the narrative, they would finally wake up to the surest way to ‘redeem’ themselves from the evil that would be unleashed upon them, given the choice to do so, or not.
Since I have already provided several snippets relating to the evil side carrying out plans of killing the band members that did not work out as they planned, the snippets posts here reveal the actual plots, not the outcomes.
