RARA-AVIS: Blues & noir endings

Tue, 25 May 1999 17:08:55 -0400 An extremely well written first novel -- CROSSROAD BLUES by Ace Atkins,
published last Nov by SMP -- hinges on the mystery surrounding the death of
real-life musical giant Robert Johnson, the murky circumstances of which not
only cloak the event in a (rural) noir mantle, but are also about as hard
boiled as it gets. The book is the first of a planned blues trilogy, but the
protagonist, Nick Travers, has legs and may not disappear after three books.
One can but hope.
