Not since Dashiell Hammett’s Maltese Falcon has an object of desire caused so much trouble.
— Craigie Zildjian
Gabriele spent seven years researching and writing the book, including background interviews with drum collectors and experts such as William Ludwig II. It will be of interest to literary crime fiction fans, but also those with an interest in drumming, vintage drums, jazz history and more.
— Phil Hood, Publisher, Drum Magazine
The whole drum world will be talking about this one!
— George Lawrence Stone, Publisher, Not So Modern Drummer
Sexy and spellbinding this well-developed mystery hooks you in fast and the four-on-the-floor pace will keep you turning pages faster than a Buddy Rich drum solo.
— Heather Smith, Managing Editor, Drumhead Magazine
The seemingly effortless blend of drum and percussion details with modern writing is superb, to say the least. . . . Mr. Gabriele has presented a can’t-put-down thriller, and it is well worth the read.
— Christopher Speich, Columnist, Not So Modern Drummer Magazine
What a great book! . . . Thank you for the tribute to Ludwig Drums and the Ludwig Family in Dangerous Illusions.
— William F. Ludwig III
