    1. As many moviegoers have learned, sometimes sequel s just aren t a good idea Fitzhugh, for the first time in his 8 or so books, decided to carry forward with his disc jockey private detective combo from Radio Activity, and give Rick Shannon another music based crime spree to solve However, to say another would mean he didn t pretty much just repeat the firstd he did Between a similar romantic angle that ended up not working out, a collection of characters that seemed ripped out of a Hiassen novel [...]

    2. This is a quirky mystery featuring a Vicksburg DJ who s also a PI Besides being into golden oldie music like the Allmans and ZZ Top, he s also into blues musicians and minstrel shows most of us have never heard of Some readers will complain Fitzhugh gives too much information about these characters and slows the pace I m not one of them For me, the anecdotes and historical vignettes makes this story come aliveOur hero Rick ends up smelling like a pig sty after chasing down a cheating spouse Then [...]

    3. I don t usually read Mistery books, but this one was recommended to be because I love Christopher Moore This book was a good read, I went through it quickly and couldn t wait to see what happened next On top of that, it is based in Mississippi and has several references to Arkansas, Louisianna and Memphis It is mostly based on music and classic old Blues Singers, so if you like that kind of music you will like this book and learn a lot from it I like to say that it read like a movie As in, it wa [...]

    4. What a marvelous book From the title to the last page, Bill Fitzhugh manages to combine the Deep South of Flannery O Connor, Carl Hiassen, and Muddy Waters, not to mention Bob Dylan s eponymous highway It s a satisfyingly suspenseful mystery which is also very funny and full of great music I m hard to bowl over, but I really liked this one.FYI Pandamonkey, who gave this book 1 star and blasted a guy breaking the law of chastity with a dog, clearly didn t read it very carefully Many laws are brok [...]

    5. I ve previously read all of Bill Fitzhugh s novels except this one and have really enjoyed them all This one is related to Radio Activity, involving a radio DJ named Rick Shannon who s also a PI It involves a murder 50 years ago for which the convicted killer has just been released from prison, and revolves around a bunch of old Delta blues players and some unreleased recordings from 50 years ago People related to these recordings start to die and Rick has to unravel what really happend 50 years [...]

    6. An easy read and a much needed break from the emotional books I have been reading of late Most of the humor revolved around a rescue kitten dubbed Crusty Boogers Fitzhugh inserted some fairly well researched history of early Blues music The story drug on a bit at the end, it could have used a quicker wrap up Never going to win any prizes but it was an okay diversion Mindless reading and not one of those books that makes me want to run out and pick up of his books for a binge read fest More of a [...]

    7. Oh my gosh I loved this book It was packed with so many of my favorite elements witty, witty writing set in the Mississippi Delta with blues history and a mystery Fitzhugh is Mississippi s Carl Hiaasen.I had read Fitzhugh s first book and and really liked it, but this far excelled that initial effort.

    8. Fitzhugh is usually a great deal of fun He s funny and irreverent, and likes classic rock even than I do But this one is just not that great The characters, which are never that strong, are even less interesting By halfway through, I didn t care about the whodunit.It s better than some books, if only because it s so very light It s not aiming for much or asking for much But there are better.

    9. This book is the second of a series involving Rick Stafford, rock and roll and blues DJ and part time private investigator Stylistically, a little like Hiassen but without his Florida settings, this book is a loving yet unflinching look at Mississippi in the 1950s Add lots of cool blues history stuff, good dialogue and some amusing situations and this easy reading book is a fun time.

    10. I loved this book because I love music and mysteries I learned about songs s origins and lots about Mississippi and the delta blues Very fun, whodunit story I will put his other books on my fun list to read.

    11. The Delta blues and then some This book was a great read Well written, interesting, and entertaining What could you want in a Summer read

    12. This book was horrible It was vulgar and crude including a guy breaking the law of chastity with a dog It is books like this that make people ashamed to read.

    13. Nice Delta atmosphere and great old bluesman characters Fitzhugh does have a way with words I particularly liked the quip, He won t go bowlegged toting his brains around.

    14. Pretty good, but I don t know whether I will read any other books in the series I may move on to some other interesting authors and series.
