Gold Medal Winner

Heather Hirschman of Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews writes, “Jim Berkenstadt's thoroughly researched book, Mysteries in the Music, explores rumors and conspiracy theories around some of music’s greatest unanswered questions. In it, he investigates every conceivable avenue open to him, documents historical interviews, and conducts his own with those still alive to answer questions. As an experienced attorney, he makes no assumptions; instead, he sets out to trace and prove facts. The reader is left with no doubt of the veracity of the conclusions he reaches.

Jim Berkenstadt literally ‘Closes Cases.’ He also does it all in a captivating and very often humorous manner. He is clearly passionate about music and this shines through his writing. He has been around for a while, so he is lucky enough to have met many of the people mentioned between these pages. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone interested in modern music.” 5 STARS *****

Berkenstadt's newest non-fiction music book, has spent 6 straight months on the Amazon Bestseller list. It is available at Amazon, Genius Books, and Signed Copies are available from the author (while supplies last).
