Publisher's summary

Two 20-something New Yorkers: awkward Seth and Carter, the trust fund hipster. They have one thing in common: an obsession with music. Rising stars on the producing scene, they stumble across a blues song long forgotten by history - and everything starts to unravel as they are drawn down a path that allows no return. Trapped in a game they don't understand, caught between performer and audience, righteous and forsaken....

A feverish new tale from the best-selling author of The Impressionist: two ambitious young musicians are drawn into a dark underworld, haunted by the ghosts of a repressive past.

BRILLIANT

Such a moving story.. that highlights much of what people of colour went throughout history and still do today. As an African this resonated with me deeply. The writer empathetically weaved such complex issues into a story that came across marvelously. The homage to Robert Johnson was noted as well. More please!
