Fast Paced and Entertaining

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

This was the third novel in the Detective Byone series and it delivers! While not a great fan of book 1, book 2 and 3 have been getting better and better! It was fast paced and entertaining and I didn't want to put it down (I did pause in the middle so I could watch Big Brother but I listened during the breaks and picked it up again straight away). Ricardo M. Fleshman knows how to write a brilliant book and Nicholas Patrella just has a way of narrating these characters and bringing them to life.

"I was a swan for you."

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed, but was not over excited, by the two earlier Byone mysteries, possibly because I read them in reverse order. But with this, the third in the series, I am fully on board. The pleasure comes in reuniting with old acquaintances from the earlier books, especially the delicious antiques dealer, Armand. The story itself is slightly unusual and, although this could be read as a standalone, so much would be lost from not knowing the background information about, not only the characters, but what has happened to them before.

Nicholas Patrella again narrates: no easy job with so many place names and phrases which are in languages other than English as well as various accents to perform. He does an excellent job, given the difficulties, reading these all fluently, with conviction, although sometimes the accents might just be a little suspect. His character dialogues are good, too, with clear definition between individuals. But in the text reading, he has a hesitancy, brief but noticeable gaps between words where none is needed, which mars this otherwise good performance.

My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me my copy of the Cemetery Paintings, via Audiobook Boom.The characters are delightful, the settings very different from those I am used to and the story isn't bad, either. Altogether, unusual and, at times, heartbreakingly beautiful despite the seedy circumstances. Recommended - but read the first two books first ( or at least book one).

NOLA Mystery Noir

What did you love best about The Cemetery Paintings?

I have enjoyed the entire series because of the locales, the book moves quickly and kept my interest.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Byone is laid back,Nawlins style, that lets the mystery evolve.

What about Nicholas Patrella’s performance did you like?

I've enjoyed Nicholas throughout the Byone series. I am no expert on French but he seems to do a pretty good job on pronunciations. A good range of voices and good flow of the narrative.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It kept my interest, which is what I want an audio book to do

Any additional comments?

I have listened to the entire series, in my opinion they can be read on a stand alone basis. Though for a good understanding, you may want to listen to the entire series. I feel the Cemetary Paintings is near the best in the series.

Thanks for the opportunity to review it!

A review copy was gifted to me at no charge. In return, I am happy to provide an honest review. Also at no charge.

GREAT ADDITION, JOURNEY TO THE DARKSIDE!

This is my third in the series, and still not even a little bit disappointed! This one goes even deeper, and I loved it! It's chilling, suspenseful, intense, just about everything. I've really enjoyed all the books in the series thus far, and I really loved this one too. Great story, narration, all in all great job, and I'd recommend it. Dark/noir/mystery/suspense - bring it!
