first of all I have to say two good things about a book the description of the period and place was good was very good actually but the book itself the story itself was very cut off I don't know how to explain it and maybe the narrator didn't help either for this book he read it very fast I felt like he did a favor of reading this book and I really tried to like this book but I couldn't do it I did really liked the places but the story itself wasn't quite enough
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I really wanted to like this book. Everything takes place in southeast Louisiana, which is like a trip home. I liked the two main characters, and the antiques dealer reminded me of some real-life ones I’ve known. The narrator did a really nice job overall, in spite of some rather odd mispronunciations. (Pontchartrain is pronounced just like it’s spelled except that the first r is silent. Archangel has a k sound, not a ch sound.) Picky, picky, I know, I just found these and a few more commonplace words oddly abused when Patrella did such a good job on the accents. New Orleans people don’t sound anything like the way most narrators voice them. Patrella came really close.
My problem is with the plot. Derivative conspiracy theory, poorly drawn. Fleshman would do better to work on his comic timing and forget the secret society garbage that has already been over-used by better writers.
