CROSSROAD BLUES Nick Travers: Book 1: 25th Anniversary Edition

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dion Graham

Mystery & Suspense • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Dion Graham, with his ability to tap into a wide variety of voices, is the right pick for this blues-heavy novel, first published in 1998, featuring music, violence, sex, and a psychopath. Nick Travers is a former pro football player turned blues historian at Tulane University in Louisiana. He is sent to find a music professor who went missing while researching the legendary 1930s blues musician Robert Johnson. The mission gets messy. There are many characters involved in the story, and Graham's stellar work helps the listener keep them straight. He goes beyond giving them different voices and pacing; he varies entire dialects. He is also nicely expressive in the narrative portions of the audiobook. This is simply a first-rate performance by a first-rate narrator. G.S.
