Author/narrator Christopher S. Allen captures the Mississippi Delta setting, unique music, and nameless bluesman featured in this audiobook. Listeners meet the musician as a child when he discovers an old guitar pick made from the bones of the renowned 1930s musician Robert Johnson. Legend has it that bluesmen of the day made deals with the devil to secure picks made from the most admired players to ensure their skills were passed on. Allen's engaging bluesman takes a boat to a remote island to have the Voodoo Queen Gabriella--whom he portrays with an evocative Louisiana accent--conjure him a pick. Seductive music, the devil's eerie-sounding laugh, and sound effects such as crickets and trains enhance this atmospheric audiobook.
