Walter Ellis's PRINCE OF DARKNESS is an absolutely smashing book. I don't have much interest in jazz, and thought a book about a jazz musician might not be my cup of tea. But once I started PRINCE OF DARKNESS, I couldn't put it down. It's powerful, moving, funny, unpredictable, harrowing -- a real experience. Like most of the people in Merlin Black's life, the reader swings between loving the great jazz trumpeter and hating him. But in the end, we care deeply about him. Walter Elllis has created a vivid and compelling portrait of a conflicted genius, and at the same time brought the world of jazz to life.
