Publisher's Summary

In a gripping tale of obsession and betrayal, The Shiver Men delivers Detective Moses Byone at his finest. Forced out of the country on a personal mission, Moses must confront his own demons in one of his greatest cases to date.

Set against the exotic paradise on the island of Trinidad with Armond Fontenot and the mysterious and alluring Lorena Hemingway, it is more than death that threatens the detective, he must also confront his own haunted past. Intriguing to the last, Detective Byone mounts a masterful return!

    "Trinidad, Byone takes on voodoo"
    What did you like best about The Shiver Men? What did you like least?

    I like the premise of Mose Byone character. I listened to Death on Canal Street a few weeks ago. Shiver Men is darker, in my opinion, that isn't a good thing.


    What could Ricardo Fleshman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Murder on Canal Street took place in New Orleans. Doing a good job portaying the life pulses of the Crescent City and its residents.


    What does Nicholas Patrella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nicholas is a very good narrator, the script of this novel contained material necessitating yelling, screeching by Patrella. That turned me off from listening.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    As a stand alone, NO. I understand that an Amazon series is in the works tentatively titled The Dying Dance of the Detective Byone Series of novels by Ricardo M Fleshman. The series contains The Dying Dance, The Devil's Serum, The Cemetery Paintings, Death on Canal Street, The Shiver Men and The Voodoo Detective. I'll probabaly give it a look when it comes on.


    Any additional comments?

    There is a lot to like in this series. The Shiver Men just didn't work for me.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Good Short Book"

    Detective Byrone is back, so be sure you're seat belt is on nice and tight because you're in for one ride you won't forget. Once you listening the book flows well. As you listen to the book you will be drawn in and become a part of the story. This time not only does Detective Byone have to solve a crime, he also must confront his own past. Will he be able to confront and face his past? Will this crime be solved? Is Detective Moses Byrone finally back? This was another excellent, suspenseful read for me. I gave it 4 stars because it was a short book.
    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review but I enjoyed the book so much I am going to check other books from the author.

    Nicholas Patrella was very good with the delivery of the story

    Story
    "Different from others but good"

    I think this might be my favorite listen so far in the Detective Byone Series which is a little surprising since it was not even set in New Orleans, one of my favorite things about the other books. This book has a big creep factor that really works (and look at that cover art! Awesome!)
    When I started listening to this, I thought I had skipped over a chapter or two by mistake. It literally starts right in the action and you have to hang on - no getting ahead of this one. There is also a tenderness that perhaps is highlighted because of the violent nature of the rest of the book.
    I say in every review that Nicholas Patrella's voice just doesn't quite do it for me. I think Detective Byone should have a deep rich voice and so on. Well that took a back seat in this book. I was stunned at the different voices he came up with for different characters and changed back and forth without disrupting the flow. That can't be easy. And the accents! I was very impressed.
    This is a really good series. I have plans to listen to them all back to back - I think I would get more out of them that way.
    I was gifted this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    "The Voodoo Detective against evil."

    Second look at this series and it is again a good book. The Voodoo detective continues to hunt down his brother.

    Nicholas Patrella delivers another good performance.
