Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Banner is 20 years old the night Dakota Shane stands center stage while six bullets ring out through the stadium. Five deaths occur from those shots, although only four ever go on record.
It happens in Portland, Oregon, at the Rose Garden Arena. The show is a sellout.
For the eight days leading up to the concert, a handful of disparate lives intertwine as their world unravels. Among them the learning-disabled kid from East St. Louis trying to move past having his little sister die in his arms; his quick-witted father-figure who inadvertently finds himself duct-taped to a chair, hostage to a meth-addled lunatic; the son desperately struggling to rise above his abusive father; the slash-punk singer managing to score her band their best gig ever only to learn she may not have a band left to play it; the psychiatrist confronting her wasted life; the ex-LAPD detective now working in Portland finally facing the ghosts still lingering from his past; the bitter ex-wife of a DJ, still secretly listening to her ex's midnight radio show while drinking herself into a whiskey coma; the out of control daughter having unprotected sex with strangers hoping pregnancy might draw her parent's attention.
And Dakota Shane: chart-topping superstar with a dark secret, caught in a media frenzy full of rumour, speculation, and lies, grappling to find any semblance of herself inside an identity forged by an extremely successful record company's marketing department.
Each life is a story and the stories collide like silver balls in a pinball machine.
A tale of passion, bravery, and redemption, The Rose Garden Arena Incident is ultimately about learning how to fix the parts of the world that are fixable and learning to live with the parts that aren't. A heartbreaking story that still leaves you with hope.
A "serial thriller", The Rose Garden Arena Incident takes place over seven separate books.

Serial Book 1

Very intriguing story. This book seems like it is several stories woven into one. As this is part of a serial book, this is an introduction to the rest of the stories. It will be interesting how the various characters interact and where they go in the story. From this first book I do not have sense of who the shooter is or why, who all of the victims are or why. The narrator did a great job with the imagery of this story. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

It Is A Lot It Less Than 3 Hours


1st in a 7 Part Serial Thriller

Mosh Pit opens with Stephanie and Brenda at a concert where 6 shots are fired and one of the women gets hit. As that scene is carried out we are taken:
*To a bar (presumably) earlier in the evening with a group of characters including Stephanie
and Brenda as well as an underage girl named Karma.
*Next we are looking in on a couple of cops with a passenger…with one of the cops being
sewn up by his partner's very pregnant wife.
*Along the way Trinity, Karma's mother, is drinking away the night listening to the midnight
DJ from California that is Karma's father.
*As the book ends we meet Marshall a man on his way to see
his kid.

It has a lot going on, as with most first in series books. I look forward to the following books to lay out a bit more clarity in what and how all of this relates

The narration was good to great by Eric Bryan Moore. This was my first experience with the author and this performer. I look forward to both of them.

I received this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I hope it is helpful to you as a potential reader.
