“Somewhere Above Sunset”
SOMEWHERE ABOVE SUNSET is an investigative memoir about the mysterious overdose of my father, Academy Award nominated actor Nick Adams, in 1968.
Daddy died of an overdose when I was seven years old in Hollywood. The Los Angeles Coroner labeled the cause of death Undetermined. The death certificate was changed three times: Accidental, Suicide, Undetermined. Nothing was found in the house. Every trace was gone- his drugs, diaries, the tapes in his recorder, $30,000 from his briefcase, the bronze Rebel cap, his life.
This true tale is a zig zag through the haunted chambers of the past, as I search for answers with a daughters heart and biographer’s soul - to understand why.
