Then one night she hears local rock singer Drumstrings Casey on the radio—and becomes instantly attracted to his cool, motionless voice. Evie learns that Drumstrings frequently plays at a dingy roadhouse called The Unicorn. So she goes there and, with an uncharacteristically bold gesture, bursts out of her lonely shell—and into the attentive gaze of an intangible man who becomes all too real. . . .
