Overview
When Blacklight guitarist JP Kinkaid is asked to introduce Delta session legend Farris "Bulldog" Moody as an Early Influences inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, he's delighted. And when JP learns from young Cleveland music historian Ches Kobel that Bulldog is still alive and living in Southern Ohio, he jumps at the opportunity to meet his idol. Ches, who's working on a book about American blues players, brings JP and Bulldog together. The elderly black musician and the rock superstar form a deep, immediate bond, and JP learns more about the man whose music so influenced him. But when Ches is found dead outside the Hall of Fame, JP is sent his notes on the unfinished book. Those notes contain puzzling discrepancies in what Bulldog has told JP about himself and his history. As doubts rise about how-and why-Ches died, JP knows he needs to know the truth behind Bulldog's life, and behind Ches Kobel's death.

Blues fans will welcome Grabien's fourth mystery featuring British session guitarist JP Kinkaid, now a San Francisco resident and member of the rock-blues band Blacklight (after 2009's While My Guitar Gently Weeps). When Kinkaid nominates Farris "Bulldog" Moody for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Early Influences category, he's amazed to learn from blues critic Ches Kobel that the 86-year-old blues guitarist is still alive. Kinkaid meets Moody at Moody's home in southern Ohio, where they make music and plans for the Hall of Fame induction. When Kobel, who's writing a history of the blues, dies unexpectedly and perhaps suspiciously, Kinkaid asks SFPD Det. Patrick Ormand to (unofficially) investigate. While the solution to the mystery will strike many as mundane, Grabien is particularly good on the early blues players and their continuing influence—and she handles Kincaid's multiple sclerosis with sensitivity and insight. (Apr.)
