Dead pop star from the 1964 novel The Trojan Hearse by Richard S. Prather. The novel is one of a series of some 30 novels featuring hard-boiled detective Shell Scott. He's a Johnny Troy fan: "I could listen for hours to the golden notes, the sweet sad sound, the richly magnificent tone and phrasing of the voice of Johnny Troy." (p.6)

Blurb:

Johnny Troy - America's top pop singer - was dead. Resting peacefully six foot under.

Until his fans dug him up in a fury and tore the corpse limb from limb.

Why? They had learned the sordid truth about the boy with the golden voice.

And the effect of that incident threatened a national ejection, stirred up the Mafia and brought Shell Scott bang into the most incredible case of his life.
