Bon: The Last Highway: The Untold Story of Bon Scott and AC/DC’s Back in Black, is due out in November. Jesse Fink is the author, and that name should be familiar to literary fans of AC/DC. Fink published The Youngs : The Brothers Who Built AC/DC back in 2015, and it was working on that project that ultimately led to the decision to also write about Scott.

“Leaving no stone unturned in a journey that begins in Austin, 1977, and ends in London, 1980, Fink takes the reader back to the end of the ’70s, a legendary era for music that saw the relentless AC/DC machine achieve its commercial breakthrough but also threaten to come apart.
With unprecedented access to Bon’s lovers, newly unearthed documents, and a trove of never-before-seen photos, Fink divulges startling new information about Bon’s last hours to solve the mystery of how he died.”
