I went into this book not realizing that it was part of a series and not the first installment. That explains my general confusion about the characters - I had a sense that there were things I was supposed to know about the characters that weren't being explained. I do not believe this book stands alone well, it should probably be read in order. That said, I enjoyed the exotic setting of the book and the story itself was pretty decent once I caught up with what was going on. There are so many detective series though and i couldn't in good conscious recommend this one when i know of much better ones. Not bad - just not awesome for me.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Detective Byrone is back, so be sure you're seat belt is on nice and tight because you're in for one ride you won't forget. Once you listening the book flows well. As you listen to the book you will be drawn in and become a part of the story. This time not only does Detective Byone have to solve a crime, he also must confront his own past. Will he be able to confront and face his past? Will this crime be solved? Is Detective Moses Byrone finally back? This was another excellent, suspenseful read for me. I gave it 4 stars because it was a short book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review but I enjoyed the book so much I am going to check other books from the author.
Nicholas Patrella was very good with the delivery of the story

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I just love this series! This instalment offers more detail on Byone's youth, which felt a bit like an oxymoron because this novel is written with much more finesse and refinement than the previous novels in the series.
It also feels very much like Ricardo M. Fleshman has become the voice of Detective Byone. He feels like such an intrinsic part of Byone that it doesn't feel right reading the physical books.
Any additional comments?
Detective Byone's partner and friend has been kidnapped by Baptiste and dragged into the wildness of Trinidad. Byone is after them and this time it is very, very personal. Travelling right back to his teenage days where it all started, this is a tale even darker than most and one of the best in the series. Whilst a stand alone, like all of the other Byone earlier stories, it is improved by knowledge of the others.
Nicholas Patrella is the narrator again, tackling the unfamiliar phrases wit aplomb As noted before, his text reading style is somewhat strange, fragmented, but his conversation is fluent and very distinctive. And, for this listener, he really has become the voice of these Byone novels.
Another intriguing and curious book. I'm looking forward to the next.
