A captivating mystery with a New Orleans twist

The book begins by introducing a few different plot lines which all run at the same time with different characters & players in the overall big story. I knew that at one point they would intertwine one another, but I wasn't sure when or how, and that's what held my attention throughout as I tried to guess and put together the pieces. The backdrop of New Orleans with its voodoo and mystical dark magic set the perfect stage for this captivating story that's riddled with twists and turns to pull you in. If you enjoy a mystery that will take you on an adventure then this book is perfect for you, it was a highly enjoyable twisty great.

No Dancin' Around

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

His diction was great, and his accents were good as well. It did seem like he was reading from a book, instead of talking. When I listen to audio books I like it to sound like the person is talking, if that makes sense? When a person seems to be reading from the book the narration seems more stilted than it should be.

Any additional comments?

This book was so-so for me, it was hard for me to get into because there seemed to be a lot of jumping around and plot points that had to be tied together. I would give this author another shot for sure, because the idea was good.
