Description
The blues are about the bottles and steel used to slide guitars, a tin roof above a juke joint, and the heavy, thump of boots on a scuffed hardwood floor. But where in the mystery genre is the blues hero?

You can find Nick Travers, an ex-New Orleans Saint turned blues historian, playing harmonica at JoJo's Blues Bar in the French Quarter. On August 16, 1938, the most celebrated figure in blues history, Robert Johnson, was murdered outside a Greenwood Mississippi juke joint. More than fifty years later, a college professor, following rumors of nine unknown Johnson recordings, disappears in the Mississippi Delta. Travers leaves New Orleans to track down the missing professor. From the neonslicked streets of New Orleans to the pinewood floors of modern Mississippi, Travers must unravel the greatest mystery in all of blues lore.
