This was an interesting mystery thriller set in New Orleans. You don’t have to wait long before the bodies start to pile up, and although there are some early clues, the story definitely keeps you guessing. I really enjoyed the way the author created a nearly palpable dark, seedy atmosphere throughout the book. What I enjoyed most was that I thought I knew exactly how this story was going to end and found myself changing my theory twice during my listen, and the end still surprised me. I would have liked to have known more about the character Tom, who wasn’t fleshed out much; but besides that the only downside to this book might be the Vietnam flashbacks thrown in at various times. I felt at times they were disorienting to the main storyline. However, by the end of the book I felt those flashback scenes did help to flesh out the character of Daniel, and what I perceived as his emotional distance from his wife and friends. I thought the pacing of this book was just right. The story wasn’t rushed, but also didn’t drag on unnecessarily.
The narration in the audiobook was top notch. Paul Woodson’s voice was essential to the creation of the atmosphere that I so enjoyed. The narration was consistent, well paced, and the character voices were easy to discern from one another. There were two significant female characters in this book and the narrator did a good job voicing those female characters, which is a bonus. I am looking forward to listening to other books narrated by Paul Woodson.

it's a good story and I was really enjoying it until about the middle . That's where it started to become a little murky. Daniels flashbacks were becoming more and more erratic which kind of threw off what was happening. I really thought he would be the slasher because of the amount of time he would lose in his flashbacks. It still didn't quite track however because Tom was a wildcard too. The ending was good... but a little anti-climatic..... even though it was a great twist..... I don't know.... I just feel.....odd.
