Trinidad, Byone takes on voodoo
I like the premise of Mose Byone character. I listened to Death on Canal Street a few weeks ago. Shiver Men is darker, in my opinion, that isn't a good thing.
Murder on Canal Street took place in New Orleans. Doing a good job portaying the life pulses of the Crescent City and its residents.
Nicholas is a very good narrator, the script of this novel contained material necessitating yelling, screeching by Patrella. That turned me off from listening.
As a stand alone, NO. I understand that an Amazon series is in the works tentatively titled The Dying Dance of the Detective Byone Series of novels by Ricardo M Fleshman. The series contains The Dying Dance, The Devil's Serum, The Cemetery Paintings, Death on Canal Street, The Shiver Men and The Voodoo Detective. I'll probabaly give it a look when it comes on.
There is a lot to like in this series. The Shiver Men just didn't work for me.
