CLAREMONT, Calif. - June 11, 2018 - PRLog -- It's 1983. A battle rages in the office suites of the world's record companies between the old and the new approach to musicmaking. Chris Kingsley arrives in Los Angeles to find a world of greed, egos, rivalries and cynicism.

When a naive young singer overdoses on drugs, Chris and his beautiful coworker embark on a dangerous journey expose a blockbuster mentality that deflates artists' careers and gouges consumers. In the process, old enemies resurface, and old scars are reopened. For Chris and his family, the journey can either drive them apart or cement them together.

While music as big business may be decades old, in the 1980s the emphasis shifted rapidly from making music to making money. It became a game played by savvy street-smart executives. Pyle's extensive research included interviews with promoters familiar with the era. "Heap on enough hype and the corporate giants would fight to swallow any expense in the all-important name of market share," she says.

Shocking and penetrating, The EDGEWATER LEGACY is the final book in the trilogy of the Kingsley family. It is filled with passion and intrigue and the divergent story lines will keep the reader guessing until the very end.

"…vivid mental-visual images...Reminds me of John's Updike's minimalism. Good stuff."- Thomas Dodson, author of Hot Trod
