Scary Tale

Troubled Baker Johnson is the perfect protagonist to lead us into this short tale of horrors in 19th Century US. He has just the right touch of hard bitten bravado and heart. Excellent voice performance by Jason Mills. Recommend!

A Baker Johnson Tale

Any additional comments?

Servant of the Red Quill is a period piece (New York City, 1927) in which West builds on a character developed in an older story of his, Baker Johnson, is a psychical researcher that has a knack for judging the book by its cover—that is, he gives accurate and thorough impressions of people’s character, insecurities, and strengths with nothing more than a look at their face. He’s also a bit of an exorcist who specializes in objects containing possession-causing properties. This audio book is very interesting.
