A Good Series: Storyville, French Quarter, N.O.

What made the experience of listening to The Voodoo Detective the most enjoyable?

I have listened to at least four audio books in the Detective Byone Series. I enjoy the New Orleans settings Treme, Storyville, the Quarter. Another aspect is the characters who populate the novels and how real they seem and how complex they are. The cultures and diversity. These are strongly represented in The Voodoo Detective specifically.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Voodoo Detective?

The confrontation and chase through the abandon building. The initial investigation.

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

Though I'm no expert, my opinion is that Nicholas handles the French pronunciations and dialects very well. He has a clear neutral voice but can add dramatic elements appropriately.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

If you can't do the time,... Voodoo you think you're foolin?

Any additional comments?

Of the handful in the series, so far, that I've heard, this one, "The Voodoo Detective" is my favorite.

Thank you for the chance to listen to and review it.

The Voodoo Detective is back

After defeating his brother the Voodoo detective is back on the case of a missing person. A number of staged murder scenes leads Mose and Armond into the dark world of Voodoo magic. A good story that moves at a good pace with some nice twists.

Well read by Nicholas Patrella who brings the story to life and delivers an enjoyable listen.
