It really delivers!
I think the only time I compare books is when they are ranked horribly.This isn't the case and it stands alone, basking in its own power.
Not yet. I plan to listen to The Cemetery Paintings next though; same author, previous book in the series.
There were multiple twists that made me say, "What?! Rewind and listen again!"
Listening to audiobooks for few hours everyday since the start of 2017.
No. It was a good story but not that good that I will listen to it again.
I had received book 3 and book 4 of this series free from the author / narrator / publisher and I'm providing an unbiased review for both the books.
I left a more detailed review on the book #3's page. Don't want to duplicate the entire thing here. In summary though - The books work as stand alone story most of the time. I can easily see both books as an episode of one of the crime thriller shows on tv.
Both the author and narrator were new to me & I enjoyed this book. I found this story to be original. I liked the setting of New Orleans and thought it gave something extra to the book. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
Detective Moses Byone and sidekick Armand Fontenot
The atmosphere of New Orleans. The slightly offbeat characters without being cartoonish characterizations
When Moses saw Bastiste alive. What a twist.

I really tried to get into this book, but I just couldn't. The narration was just so bad it made it impossible to enjoy it. The character voices were terrible and the way he pronounced certain words grated on my nerves. The premise of the book is intriguing enough that I may try it in print, but I just couldn't get through it as an audio book. I stopped and started this book 3 times in the hopes that something would have changed, but nope, couldn't do it.

Detective Byone has one wild case. Trying to catch a killer who witnesses claim to be the devil with red eyes. Byone weeds through the conductor, the french horn player and a few others before solving the case. Even though he finally identifies the killer he is
unable capture him.
I'm retired USAF and fully retired with a lot of time to read now. Read my whole life so thought I'd give some of that knowledge back.
Turns, Twists and OMG!
When Moses saw Bastiste alive. What a twist.
I really liked Armound. I think he pro-traded him to a tie and it was just as I pictured him.
There were so many. It started right from the beginning and did not stop til the end, where it left you hanging right there for the next installment.
This was the first book that I have read from Ricardo M. Fleshman and I was truly amazed at how he kept me interested all the way through the book. I thought that I would be lost coming into the 4th book of a series, but not at all. Characters were developed great and surprises were around every corner.
The narrator did a fantastic job and I could differentiate between each and every character and he kept the story moving at a great speed.
Thank God for books of all kinds and ears to hear
I was really looking forward to listening to this audiobook and it delivered. I was able to keep up much better in this book. I admit to not being able to keep all the characters straight in his other books but this one kept the count down which was a great thing for my listening brain. A big surprise in the end was a great asset to peaking my interest.
I am much more used to the narrator now, but I'm never going to really cotton to him. I think he is talented, but not my cup of tea. His French is a bit forced but better than his Italian. And as always, his voice is too soft for me to reconcile it with Moses.
The 'scenery' was great as always and one my favorite characters is New Orleans. I look forward to more!
I was gifted this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I have just recently started to listen to audiobooks, so have to honestly say ranks as number 4 out of 4
The plot was good and each chapter ended with my wanting to hear the next one
Detective Byone was the one character I would list as my favorite
I don't have any idea what a tag line would be
I see that this is book 4 in a series and think that I might have even enjoyed it more had I read the first three and learned more about the main characters. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom
Characters not developed enough.
Started out well but got to rambling with too many French pronunciations

"Just couldn't get into it due to the narrator"
Narrators are a very personal issue and for me this particular narrator did not make the book enjoyable. I just couldn't get into the book so I can't really comment on what it is like. Someone else might thoroughly enjoy it.
