This could be the most astonishing whodunnit you are ever likely to read. As good as Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time... and with more twists and coils than a hangman's noose. 'The dead can't speak to us', Professor Madoc had said. That was a lie. Because the body Patrick Fort is examining in anatomy class is trying to tell him all kinds of things. Life is already strange enough for the obsessive Patrick without having to solve a possible murder. Especially when no one believes a crime has even taken place. Now he must stay out of danger long enough to unravel the mystery - while he dissects his own evidence. But as Patrick learns one truth from a dead man, he discovers there have been many other lies rather closer to home...

When The Grateful Dead surfaced in San Francisco in the mid-1960s, with their psychedelic imagery and mass following of Dead Heads, they spearheaded a new and rebellious counterculture that joyfully rejected mainstream America.The Dead were an unlikely blend of talents, from the folk roots of Jerry Garcia to the blues of Rod "Pigpen" McKernan, to the innovative bass playing of Phil Lesh and the inventive percussion of Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. Their early, experimental album "Anthem of the Sun" bewildered and frustrated their record company, but The Dead's music evolved with the changes in their personal lives and in 1970 they produced "American Beauty", an acoustic album of outstanding folk-based melodies. As Mickey Hart says: "We were coming out of our space suit and...planting our feet firmly back on earth".This film charts how The Dead evolved from "Anthem" to "Beauty", and examines how these very different records were made. It includes rare footage of The Dead in their prime from TV appearances and recording sessions to home videos as well as extensive interviews with band members, lyricist Robert Hunter and many musicians from the era.
