    Story
    "A dark 70s noir with supernatural overtones"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The ending of this book is satisfying yet so touching. It really is more fulfilling if you have heard the previous books but not necessary. This is a good noir story with supernatural overtones that feels dark and gritty. The narrator is great at characterization of the various characters and their accents. A wonderful mystery and detective story that is full of dark undertones. Great listen. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Detective Byone Take a Journey to the Underside"

    The Cemetery Paintings takes Mose further to the dark side of New Orleans than ever. Everything is once again brought to a chilling crisis, with all the foes from the past looking to bring Detective Byone closer to death than ever. The interplay of all the player make this a chilling and yet very entertaining story.
    Your regret will be realizing the is the last of the series.

    Story
    "A good detective / thriller series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cemetery Paintings to be better than the print version?

    Of course. I prefer audio versions anyway. Moreover, the narrators oration builds the tension / thrill very well and draws the listener in.


    Have you listened to any of Nicholas Patrella’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to book 4 in this series too. The narrator does a marvelous job in both the books.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Since I started listening from the book 3, it felt like I was missing some "inside information" from the first two books from time to time. But it wasn't too much. The books work as stand alone stories most of the time. I can easily see both books as an episode of one of the crime thriller shows on tv.

    Story
    "NOLA Mystery Noir"
    What did you love best about The Cemetery Paintings?

    I have enjoyed the entire series because of the locales, the book moves quickly and kept my interest.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Byone is laid back,Nawlins style, that lets the mystery evolve.


    What about Nicholas Patrella’s performance did you like?

    I've enjoyed Nicholas throughout the Byone series. I am no expert on French but he seems to do a pretty good job on pronunciations. A good range of voices and good flow of the narrative.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It kept my interest, which is what I want an audio book to do


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to the entire series, in my opinion they can be read on a stand alone basis. Though for a good understanding, you may want to listen to the entire series. I feel the Cemetary Paintings is near the best in the series.

    Thanks for the opportunity to review it!

    A review copy was gifted to me at no charge. In return, I am happy to provide an honest review. Also at no charge.

    "Should have read Volume 1 first."
    What does Nicholas Patrella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The atmosphere and the pronunciation of the names.


    Any additional comments?

    I had trouble following the story at times. It seemed to move slow, but I still had to rewind and listen again to get things straight. Just came back from New Orleans so that was kind of a nice tie in for me.

    "Best yet."

    I really liked this installment. I understand this is the end of the trilogy but hope it's not the end of the series.
    I still did not really gel with the narrator. He does such a good job technically. I just cannot seem to marry the voice of narrator with the Moses in my head. I was able to finally not let this mar my enjoyment of the novel. Such an interesting series. Love that New Orleans and all her mystic!!

    Story
    ""I was a swan for you.""
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed, but was not over excited, by the two earlier Byone mysteries, possibly because I read them in reverse order. But with this, the third in the series, I am fully on board. The pleasure comes in reuniting with old acquaintances from the earlier books, especially the delicious antiques dealer, Armand. The story itself is slightly unusual and, although this could be read as a standalone, so much would be lost from not knowing the background information about, not only the characters, but what has happened to them before.

    Nicholas Patrella again narrates: no easy job with so many place names and phrases which are in languages other than English as well as various accents to perform. He does an excellent job, given the difficulties, reading these all fluently, with conviction, although sometimes the accents might just be a little suspect. His character dialogues are good, too, with clear definition between individuals. But in the text reading, he has a hesitancy, brief but noticeable gaps between words where none is needed, which mars this otherwise good performance.

    My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me my copy of the Cemetery Paintings, via Audiobook Boom.The characters are delightful, the settings very different from those I am used to and the story isn't bad, either. Altogether, unusual and, at times, heartbreakingly beautiful despite the seedy circumstances. Recommended - but read the first two books first ( or at least book one).
