In the process of looking for him Amos visits some clubs and jazz collectors where he listens to records Favor played on, finds one young musician who has deified Favor and learned to play all of his recordings note for note.

I particularly liked the second plot thread that involves police lieutenant John Alderyce. When the book opens Alderyce is on leave from the Detroit police department. His wife as left him and Amos visits him at home where Alderyce is trying to drink his way through then cases of beer. During the book I learned that Alderyce and Walker grew up together. In this book we get to see the two men away from the office where they open I found the third plot thread the least interesting.www.cogumelo.uevora.pt/includes/4746.php

The federal officials would like to deport Mozo because of his drug activities. Meanwhile Frankie Arcado, a small-time current Italian criminal boss in Detroit is trying to kill Mozo because he believes Mozo killed his missing father. I found this thread to be the most predictable and the least interesting of the three.
I would liked to have seen all three plots fleshed out a little bit. I enjoyed it but would have enjoyed it more if there had been more to it. I feel like I was reading a book that needed one more draft. In this case I learned that not enough work had been done either in the cover design or in the novel.
