Welcome to Cape Noire. Located on the Northwest Coast, Cape Noire is a booming economic giant whose inner core has been corrupted by all manner of evil. From the sadistic mob bosses who ruthlessly control vast criminal empires to the fiendish creatures that haunt its maze of back alleys, Cape Noire is a modern Babylon of sin and depravity. Amidst this den of iniquity strides a macabre warrior committed to avenging the innocent and holding back the tide of villainy. He is Brother Bones, the Undead Avenger and there is no other like him. A one time, heartless killer, he is now the spirit of vengeance trapped in an undying body. He is the unrelenting sword of justice as meted about by his twin .45 automatics. His face, hidden forever behind an ivory white skull mask, is the entrance to madness for those unfortunate enough to behold it. This new collection features five suspenseful, fast-paced, action packed stories featuring pulp fiction's most original hero, Brother Bones. Time to draw the shades, light the candles and enter into a Tapestry of Blood.

"Ha, ha, ha. Nothing can save me now."

Any additional comments?

The 'Dragon' has gone but Cape Noire still has need of Brother Jones, the Undead Avenger, as this series of stories reveal. With his bizarre humour and stranger tales, Ron Fortier again throws the reader into the midst of a very colourful procession of characters, from Father O'Malley and alter boy, Billy, and Sally Page the reporter (possibly the sanest of them all), through gang boss, Peter Malone and his murderous brother, Arnold, to cigarette girl, Laura and her card playing boy friend, Bobby, who also just happens to be chauffeur, helper and housemate to Brother Bones himself. A kaleidoscope of colourful characters who are often not quite what they seem. Or else they are ...

J.Scott Bennett's interpretative performance brings the whole world to life, giving just enough sinister undertone to his reading to embue a tension without distracting from the comedy.

Good, riotous fun with just the right touch of evil. This is the second Brother Bones book I have heard and, although not quite as enthralling as it's predecessor, it was a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Recommended.
My thanks to the right's holder for gifting me a copy of Tapestry of Blood.

Skull Breaking Fun!!!!

Brother Bones is a blast from the past that doesn't feel dated, but still carries that noirish charm of the thirties. This is done in the same vein as the Shadow, Green Lama, and Doc Savage. It fits right in with those iconic characters, and if you didn't know better you would believe that it really was an OTR program at one time, or had dozens of pulp novels being sold in stores.

A killer who is cursed by his victim, Bones is doomed to act as a spirit of vengeance upon the killers of the innocent. A similar concept to the early DC Spectre or Marvel's Ghost Rider. He also gets a spirit guide to lead him to targets.

This is a collection of several short stories, furthering the feel of Old Time Radio. Here he faces opponents of flesh and blood, then not so much, and undead as well. Each tale is great, and is better than the last. Best of all, we get to meet another new pulp heroine, th Pulptress.

Anyone who is a fan of noir era tales, OTR, superheroes, or even paranormal will enjoy this new series. BTW, Bennet really sets a tone with his reading, think Orson Wells as the Shadow. He does a fantastic job, and when you hear his voice as Brother Bones you will get as shiver of excitement.

"Bad Guys Beware, There's a New Nightmare in Town"

Brother Bones has a way of creeping up on you, but instead of being scared, you are rooting for his special kind of justice. Evil can run, but it can't hide from Brother Bones.
