A Baker Johnson Tale
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.
