Phoenix Smalls has plenty of aspirations: to be famous with dignity; to set a new record by holding her breath for the longest time; to do the longest 'moonwalk'. But she knows what none of her aspirations involve - music. With a jazz club-owner mother and a father who was constantly on the road with musicians, Phoenix has had enough of the music lifestyle. However, after a lifetime of squirming through piano lessons, Phoenix becomes uncharacteristically intrigued by an old, rotting piano which starts Phoenix on a chilling and menacing journey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Due shows herself true to her own powerful gift." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[M]ore than just a ghost story is Due's sense of musical and cultural history.... Even while she brings to life Scott Joplin the man, Due makes us appreciate Scott Joplin the icon, the symbol. This understanding gives Joplin's Ghost its haunting power." -- The Washington Post
"In this ambitious and action-packed novel, Tananarive Due blurs genre boundaries as adroitly as her ghost walks through walls. Part love story, part ghost story, part historical fiction, part contemporary adult drama, this book is difficult to categorize -- and impossible to put down." -- Valerie Boyd, author of Wrapped in Rainbows:The Life of Zora Neale Hurston
