Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, it highlights an interesting era in New Orleans history.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
No, there were too many disparate story lines. Switching back and forth broke the tension.
How could the performance have been better?
Mr. Ragland did a good job of portraying the different characters. However, many of the unusual names and places are mispronounced. Having been born in New Orleans and being a lifelong resident of the New Orleans Metropolitan Area, these mispronunciations take me right out of the story. The author got a few things wrong, too. Angola State Penitentiary is nowhere near Boutte (pronounced Bootee, not Bootay).
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
BEWARE THE AXEMAN!
The book was so interesting I listened twice. The first read I wandered from the mystery so taken was I by life in New Orleans in 1919. The second read I concentrated on following the threads of intrigue. I just might listen a third time.
