I would listen to The Feathers again for the atmosphere. I enjoyed the New Orleans setting and the time setting, late 1970's. That is an unusual setting when there were no cell phones or internet browsers to help the investigation along. They actually needed to go to libraries to do research. I remember it well!
The suspense kept building thoughout to a finish that was entirely unexpected. I am looking forward to the next in the series.
I think it would have to be Brenda- very dogged and willing to admit the possibility of supernatual.
I was moved by the accounts of the murder victims. That was a nice stylistic twist that helped them become more human- not just a series of victims.

Yes! An abundance of raw details really let my mind draw a picture of what was happening. I felt as if I was there observing every scene. The motive for the crimes was craftily kept until later in the story which left me perplexed until the unexpected ending.
The reader did a great job with all the accents and dialects so I could easily distinguish the characters. It was a very diverse cast and this was no easy task.
Towards the end, when it was revealed what happened to the antagonist way back - I found myself feeling sorry for him, yet struggling with my feelings if his actions were righteous and justified.
I listen to audiobooks on my commute to and from work. I found myself running a little late for work, or sitting in the driveway parked at home -- because I couldn't turn off this story! I'm looking forward to the next books in the series.
Yes, it's entertaining and an interesting book.
A unique voice to the writing.

Brenda is an amateur detective, set out to find out who killed the murder victim she found in the historic garden district. As her research progresses it's leading her to Thomas Carpenter who died in 1878....
It's engaging and intriguing all in one. You will most definitely want to read this one to the end.
Looking forward to more from this author.

Well written, intriguing but different than I expected. Mysterious serial killer may have been dead for 100 years. I had a hard time because I thought the heroine was whiney, my momma died, my daddy died, nobody loves me now. The plot didn't quite jell and that kept the rating to 3 stars. It wasn't great but it wasn't bad.
