Great mystery! A very poignant swan song at the end left me in tears.
Narrator did an excellent job.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobookboom com.

A good story
I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I rather liked the last book in the series (the first for me) and figured I'd give book 3 a try. I liked this one as much, if not more, than the previous book. It is just as engaging and the story is interesting. The narration continues to be good. All in all, I enjoyed it.

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).
