Graceland: Book 4 of the JP Kinkaid Chronicles (英语) 平装 – 2011年4月21日
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.

And oh yeah, more female wishful thinking...although the men in the book all tend to be pushing 60 and the women are at least late 40s, the men are all completely faithful to and entirely in love with and still madly attracted to the wives they've had for decades. This despite, one assumes, having had plenty of options to look elsewhere. I mean, I can see maybe one, possibly two, committed celeb couples, but in real life, hello, this is a RARITY. In a chick-lit romance novel, however, I guess it's pretty de rigeur. But having a supposedly male narrator for such obviously girly fantasies of romance and cooking and shoes just does not ring true at all.
