Stephen Foehr’s novels and nonfiction probes mystery, travel, and music. The novels include the London heist of tea worth millions; ways to resist an authoritarian government without being beaten, jailed, or killed; how to solve a murder using Einstein’s theory of quantum entanglement theory, with the aid of a female heavy metal guitarist and a burglar of peoples’ presumptions, expectations, and assumed truths.

The nonfiction books explore how music influences the culture and history of Jamaica, Cuba, and Nashville. He also wrote the autobiography of blues legend Taj Mahal.
