Was Hughes the real composer? And what was his relationship with Evan's mother? A whirlwind journey ensues, taking Evan across the country to find answers.More
"Evan's sixth case offers an infectiously mellow first-person narrative, a nostalgic undertone, and a nicely drawn combo of sidemen (and women)." (Kirkus Reviews)
