best suited for older teens and adults who like a dab of horror with their history. Reimagines the life of robert johnson, blues legend whose life remains a mystery to this day.

I enjoyed it, but honestly the true to time vernacular really grated on my nerves. I also wish there was a note about the use of that language in the endnotes.

that being said, I particularly like the inclusion of clyde as in bonnie & 8lyde!
