Someone looking for political commentary, not a mystery.
Yes, but not in this genre.
Never finished it.
Disappointment and a bit of anger that this was billed as a Sneaky Pie mystery. I kept listening for the story line--there is none, just commentary by the usual Sneaky Pie characters. Not at all what I was looking for.
New Orleans setting is well-done. Juxtaposition between Civil War times and the present is interesting.
The initial scene between the union and confederate soldier grabs your attention.
A modern-day New Orleans detective ghost story
Probably not. This book was hard to follow; I kept thinking that my ipod must be on "shuffle."
Reduce the jumping from one "case history" to another. I know this is a literary device but for some reason, it made this book very difficult to follow and even remember the characters from one jump to another.
Good voice, easy to understand, nice accent.
No, I do not listen to books twice. This was a good James Lee Burke novel, more novel than typical mystery/police of Hackberry Holland or Dave Robicheaux.
Holland is a thoughtful Dave Robicheaux
Final scene was quite good, suspenseful to the end.
I thought this was a light spy story,turned into a very gruesome, violent sci-fi, with a bit of dark humor. I really tried, but I could not make it all the way through, especially after the children were killed. I won't say more to spoil the story for those who like this kind of story.
Summary was very misleading, not at all what I expected. Some funny dark humor and memorable characters, but the violence was just too much.
Interesting them of the "fool," with religious conotations as well a story line about the homeless. Very well read, entertaining.
Great setting in a monastery, more frustration with inspector Beauvoir's problems since the attack on the unit. Wonderful descriptions of the monks and their services. Overall a very satisfying mystery and an excellent narrator, as usual.
Love the cats and other animals.
One of Kate Forbes' best performances.
Harry gets her chance at a sports car.
I have read almost all of the Anna Pigeon mysteries and think this is one of the best. It is intense and holds interest well.
