The Devil's Serum
Yes. Entertaining & well-written book about a troubled PI
Older Raymond Chandler-type books
I love reading mysteries set in New Orleans, noir-type gumshoes & voodoo, so this series of books involving Moses Byone are a great choice for me. This book isn't quite as good as the first, but still entertaining.
The author delves into the world of the New Orleans nightlife, drag queens & voodoo all while drawing you into the world of a PI with a past. Add in an insane asylum, a creepy & deranges Doctor & you have a great read!
I look forward to continuing to travel into the world of Moses Byone in the rest of this series
New Orleans Ambiance
I love any book written that takes place in New Orleans. Then again, I love wandering around New Orleans Square at Disneyland, so take that remark at face value.
I'm not going to tell you my favorite moments, because it would mean nothing to you and it would spoil things. I don't like to give away too much about a mystery because you know that there is going to be a twist and unexpected turns, so suffice it to say, expect a fun ride with twists and turns. If you're like me, you prefer to know maybe ten words about a book, then go into it and be as surprised as possible, knowing full well that if you don't like it, audible.com has a generous return policy.
This is my first time listening to this narrator, but it won't be my last since I became an instant fan of Nicholas Patrella. And a few times, when the action got intense, I slowed down the speed of the playback to ensure that I didn't miss anything. I just love that about the audible app - even changing from 1.0 to .95 in speed makes a big difference to me in playback.
If you are looking for a good mystery, seeped in the local culture of New Orleans, then this is a great audio book to curl up with, either on a beach in Cancun, or on a rainy day with a mug of hot coco in Maine. But either way, I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's a fun, intelligent read.
