New Orleans, 1918. The birth of jazz, the Spanish flu, an ax murderer on the loose. The lives of a traumatized cop, a conflicted Mafia matriarch, and a brilliant trumpeter converge - and Crescent City gets the rich, dark, sweeping audiobook it so deserves.

Interesting story of three very different lives in New Orleans, a musician, a policeman and an oddball heir to a local mafia kingpin. Well written. Not a killer, but the performance fails to capture what people in New Orleans actually sound like, and he manages, like many tourists, to mispronounce the name of a famous street. Shoulda done a little research.

Jussi Adler-Olsen is Denmark's premier crime writer. His books routinely top the bestseller lists in northern Europe, and he's won just about every Nordic crime-writing award, including the prestigious Glass Key Award-also won by Henning Mankell, Stieg Larsson, and Jo Nesbo.

What did you like best about The Keeper of Lost Causes? What did you like least?

I've not finished this book. That said, the narration is irritating. I don't need characters to speak in accents. I really don't need, or want, Danish characters to sound like Arnold Schwarzenegger. He's from somewhere else. I loved book 3, Conspiracy of Faith. Will take more than faith to get through this one.
