If I had to describe this novel in two words... FUCKING AWESOME!

Fire, Metal, Blood and Money is not your average novel.  The story revolves around the Portland (Oregon) metal scene, in which the guitarist of a Black metal band is accused of burning a church.  A friend starts his own little investigation and he quickly finds out that there is much more going on than the burning of the church.  Enough said, I don't want to spoil it for you! :).

It took me less than two days to read this 224 pages novel.  This has got to be the most addictive page-turner that I've ever read.  The author has an entertaining writing style, and can describe scenes and persons in details without boring the reader to death.  There is no unneeded blabbering, so you won't even want to skip a paragraph.  The author is a metalhead, as shown by his knowledge and enthusiasm for the metal scene, making this a very enjoyable reading for any metalhead.  Oh, yeah, there's sex too :).  I seriously hope that this author will write some more in the future.

The novel seems to have a limited distribution.  It is available through Metal Rules!! (with credit card ordering) and through the author's site at
