This is a very well written novel that encompasses several genres: New Pulp, mystery, supernatural thriller, paranormal investigations, Jazz music, the Harlem Renaissance, Lovecraftian Themes, and so much more! This is one of the best novels I have read this year. Jon Black is a professional journalist (with an emphasis on music) and a commercial writer who also does fiction in the mystery/horror genre. I was engrossed with this story from the very beginning and marveled at the amount of research and storycraft that went into it. This is a story that will not disappoint the reader. Highly recommended!
