    "Narration takes away from the story"

    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.

    I received this book at no charge in exchange for my honest review via AudioBookBoom.

    Story
    "Do not blink while you read this!!!"
    If you could sum up Death on Canal Street in three words, what would they be?

    Turns, Twists and OMG!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Death on Canal Street?

    When Moses saw Bastiste alive. What a twist.


    Which character – as performed by Nicholas Patrella – was your favorite?

    I really liked Armound. I think he pro-traded him to a tie and it was just as I pictured him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "This series gets better and better"

    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.

    Story
    "Interesting Listen"
    Where does Death on Canal Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have just recently started to listen to audiobooks, so have to honestly say ranks as number 4 out of 4


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was good and each chapter ended with my wanting to hear the next one


    Which character – as performed by Nicholas Patrella – was your favorite?

    Detective Byone was the one character I would list as my favorite


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

    I don't have any idea what a tag line would be


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Murder in New Orleans"

    My first look at this series and it is a good book. Probably should have read/listened to the earlier books, but the story still flowed nicely.

    Nicholas Patrella delivers a good performance. As with any first time listening to a new narrator, takes a bit to get used too, but it is a good book and read well.

    "Just couldn't get into it due to the narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    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.
