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.

    "utterly brilliant"

    This is an amazing piece of work. A work of art. The narration is excellent.
    It is a horror story with something to say about societal racism, the blind spots in the conscience of that society, and the cost of it to all those who have been abused and forgotten. All done without lecturing or sentimentality. It functions as an entertainment first, and the rest creeps up on you. The writing is lean and layered, a series of evocative and memorable images that build throughout to a devastating climax. I thought it was a wonderful achievement.

    "Think I may have lost the plot!!"

    Slightly confused over the genre of this book. Bought it after reading glowing reviews, and after finishing still not sure whet it was all about. Still, the pace was good and I was interested all the way to the end.
