All Jonny Hooker has to do to claim a big prize is to solve the Da-Da-De-Da-Da Code. Jonny knows that beat: it is scattered throughout popular music and it has something to do with the Devil's Chord, as well as the great blues musician Robert Johnson; Elvis Presley—who is of course still alive—and with the Secret Parliament of Five, who dictate world affairs. When he solves the Code, Jonny will discover why all the most famous rock musicians die at 27, the truth about raising an ancient god, and all about the destruction of the world.

About the Author:

Robert Rankin is the author of The Brightnomicon, The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, Knees Up Mother Earth, Necrophenia, The Toyminator, and The Witches of Chiswick.

From Publishers Weekly:
Although the American fondness for British humor is well-documented, this demented musical conspiracy thriller from U.K. comic fantasist Rankin (The Toyminator) doesn't quite make the leap. Jonny Hooker, a 27-year-old musician tormented by hallucinations, wins a competition and is told to collect his prize at da-da-de-da-da. Now he must solve the Da-da-de-da-da Code, helped only by his imaginary friend, Mr. Giggles the Monkey Boy. Jonny soon winds up in a mental hospital, but that doesn't stop him from pursuing the puzzle. En route he encounters the secret cabal that rules the world and learns why all the best rock musicians die at age 27. Despite some truly inspired bits scattered throughout, Rankin comes across as more condescending than ironic and more disorganized than surrealist. (Feb.)
