Trinidad, Byone takes on voodoo

What did you like best about The Shiver Men? What did you like least?

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.

What could Ricardo Fleshman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Murder on Canal Street took place in New Orleans. Doing a good job portaying the life pulses of the Crescent City and its residents.

What does Nicholas Patrella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nicholas is a very good narrator, the script of this novel contained material necessitating yelling, screeching by Patrella. That turned me off from listening.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

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.

Any additional comments?

There is a lot to like in this series. The Shiver Men just didn't work for me.

Good Short Book

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
