CROSSROAD BLUES: A NICK TRAVERS GRAPHIC NOVEL by Ace Atkins and Marco Finnegan is set to drop May 1st and I can’t wait.
After a New Orleans college professor goes missing while searching for the rumored lost recordings of bluesman Robert Johnson—who, as legend has it, sold his soul to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads—Nick Travers is sent to find him. Clues point to everyone from an eccentric albino named Cracker to a hitman who believes he is the second coming of Elvis Presley.
I first discovered Atkins writing when he was tapped to continue the Robert B. Parker Spenser novels. I was so impressed I searched out more of Atkins work and this led me to his other novels as well as the first Nick Travers graphic novel, Last Fair Deal Gone Down. Needless to say, I was hooked.
