Brilliant

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Coming after the end of the trilogy, I had my reservations about this novel. But it was brilliant! Detective Moses Byone was as brilliant as he was during the trilogy and the plot itself was good. Fleshman has a talent for smooth story telling, fast pacing and characterisation.

"A pig with lipstick on it is still a pig."

Any additional comments?

Another harrowing case for Detective Moses Byone and his new partner, Armond.Perhaps if they had known their client, Marcel, better they would not have agreed to deliver four heavy chests to his home. When Marcel is murdered, they have to hide the chests and try to find out why and by whom he was killed. The answer to this latter question is totally unexpected.

Set in the often seedy and atmospheric areas of New Orleans, the 'Voodoo' detective gets to meet some rather colourful characters. For anyone yet to start this series, this would be a good place to begin as it is not reliant on any former knowledge from previous books and even Moses reintroduces himself. Nicholas Patrella is, again, the narrator and his is quite a task. Not only does his give smooth and distinctive voice to all of the characters but he also has to tackle phrases in French and Creole, which he does with aplumb, though sometimes with a strange accenting, but perhaps that is how it is spoken there. He also enthusiastically adds laughter and raised voices where called upon to do so in the text. However, he does have an initially disconcerting hesitancy at times when reading between conversations.but ignore this: the effect quickly ceases to intrude. Overall, a good performance.

This is an enjoyable book in an unusual series. The first three stories are best heard in order but this, the fourth, can be safely read without previous knowledge, as mentioned before. I was very fortunate in being gifted my copy of Death on Canal Street by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. My thanks. The more of this series I hear, the better I like it..

Fleshman Brings us Another Great Read

The Voodoo Detective Returns. Returning with Armond Fontenot, His Antique Dealer Friend and now partner, they move on the edge of the dark side as they work to uncover the mysteries surrounding their clients death
Not only is the case layers deep but as always has an unexpected twist as they try to unwind the story.
Patrella’s narration makes the story a great listen.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Note: When selecting books to read or listen to for reviews I try and select authors and stories that interest me. Sometimes I am fortunate and other times not so fortunate. Either way, I try to review the books with integrity.

Voodoo Mystery

Detective Byone and Armond are on the case after their client turns up dead. This case will be bring everything home to Byone and challenge him in ways he never imagined.

This audiobook was just OK for me. Everything, from the plot to the narration was superficial and lacked very much depth. There was not a lot of character development and I never really cultivated any affinity for the main characters. I have not ready the previous books in the series so that may be why I felt like there were missing pieces to the story. The setting was interesting to me as I am always drawn to the mystery that is New Orleans but this was not played up, either. In the end, I was just waiting for it to end.

I received this book for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
