Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Cape Noire. Located on the Northwest Coast, Cape Noire is a booming economic giant whose inner core has been corrupted by all manner of evil. From the sadistic mob bosses who ruthlessly control vast criminal empires to the fiendish creatures that haunt its maze of back alleys, Cape Noire is a modern Babylon of sin and depravity. Amidst this den of iniquity strides a macabre warrior committed to avenging the innocent and holding back the tide of villainy. He is Brother Bones, the Undead Avenger and there is no other like him. A one time, heartless killer, he is now the spirit of vengeance trapped in an undying body. He is the unrelenting sword of justice as meted about by his twin .45 automatics. His face, hidden forever behind an ivory white skull mask, is the entrance to madness for those unfortunate enough to behold it. This new collection features five suspenseful, fast-paced, action packed stories featuring pulp fiction's most original hero, Brother Bones. Time to draw the shades, light the candles and enter into a Tapestry of Blood.

Skull Breaking Fun!!!!

Brother Bones is a blast from the past that doesn't feel dated, but still carries that noirish charm of the thirties. This is done in the same vein as the Shadow, Green Lama, and Doc Savage. It fits right in with those iconic characters, and if you didn't know better you would believe that it really was an OTR program at one time, or had dozens of pulp novels being sold in stores.

A killer who is cursed by his victim, Bones is doomed to act as a spirit of vengeance upon the killers of the innocent. A similar concept to the early DC Spectre or Marvel's Ghost Rider. He also gets a spirit guide to lead him to targets.

This is a collection of several short stories, furthering the feel of Old Time Radio. Here he faces opponents of flesh and blood, then not so much, and undead as well. Each tale is great, and is better than the last. Best of all, we get to meet another new pulp heroine, th Pulptress.

Anyone who is a fan of noir era tales, OTR, superheroes, or even paranormal will enjoy this new series. BTW, Bennet really sets a tone with his reading, think Orson Wells as the Shadow. He does a fantastic job, and when you hear his voice as Brother Bones you will get as shiver of excitement.

Tapestry of Blood; The Best One Yet

I love the BROTHER BONES series and I think The Tapestry of Blood is the best one thus far. I didn't want it to end. The undead of Cape Noire are strong, full bodied characters that you can't help but like with the exception of the baddies that dare to enter. My favorite character is Paula and her new persona as well as the teenage girl she saved named Nancy Hanson.

What I enjoy about the series is that with each installment the main players evolve into more greatness and the introduction of new characters within each story is very clever. For example, I love the Bruiser from Bavaria and The Plastic Army created by Mott Smalley. Pure genius. Ron Fortier is a fantastic author.

J. Scott Bennett's performance is SO GOOD. He's an excellent voice actor with perfect inflections, tone, and character voices. He adds just the right touch. This pair up of author/reader is by far one of my favorites. Recommended and especially if one dares to enter Cape Noire after dark where dead men don't sleep or dream.

Audiobook gifted for my honest review.

Unique pulp...must listen!

Brother Bones: Tapestry of Blood by Ron Fortier and narrated by J. Scott Bennett is an action-packed book with a variety of characters and old noir style. Def must listen! Not sure what I can say other reviews haven’t, so if you’re reading the summary/reviews and are wondering if you should listen to this, the answer is yes. The narrator, J. Scott Bennett, shines in this one. He was meant to voice this series, for reals. *I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you for allowing me to listen and review the book!

"Bad Guys Beware, There's a New Nightmare in Town"

Brother Bones has a way of creeping up on you, but instead of being scared, you are rooting for his special kind of justice. Evil can run, but it can't hide from Brother Bones.

Yes, and as ever he is terrific on this book.

Brother Bones, the Undead Avenger

Brother Bones was a ruthless killer in life. One of his innocent victims cursed him. His total existence now consists of sitting in a dark room, waiting for her ghost to appear and call him to action. He can never truly die and must avenge the innocent victims of killers like himself. There is a strong pulp fiction feel to the stories. The bad guys are sometimes human, sometimes non-human, with a strong presence of the supernatural.

There are really two stories in "Tapestry of Blood." The first involves "The Butcher," a psychotic serial killer. The second is "The Bruiser from Bavaria," a psychic vampire. We are also introduced to the Pulptress, a bounty hunter who is after the same killer that Brother Bones is after.

I enjoy Ron Fortier's stories. They're great fun!

I received a free copy of this audiobook from AudiobookBoom in exchange for an honest review.

Chilling radio style horror drama

Done in the noir style of yester years radio shows like the shadow, phantom and dick Tracy, enter into cape noir and the city that is defended by brother bones. An avenging spirit taken form in the body of his dead twin. Be ready for him to take on all sorts of macabre villains and cults. Brother bones will not disappoint. I already have several of his tales and love them all. Can't wait
For more! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Another great Brother Bones book

I never thought I would be a fan of this genre (is it pulp fiction?), and yet I have immensely enjoyed each book I have listened to in the Brother Bones series. It combines gritty crime, a supernatural avenger, interesting characters, and a great story. I listened to the Audible audio version narrated by J. Scott Bennett, and his narration is great. I actively search out books that he narrates, and I have never once been disappointed with his performance. I'm looking forward to any future books in this series. If you like noir, crime fiction, or tales of vengeance, I highly recommend this book.

“He did not sleep. Nor did he dream. Ever!”

Really enjoy these books. Easy to listen to and great, fun stories! Well written and well narrated; Scott has some great voices (I especially like the Gorilla!) This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

"Ha, ha, ha. Nothing can save me now."

Any additional comments?

The 'Dragon' has gone but Cape Noire still has need of Brother Jones, the Undead Avenger, as this series of stories reveal. With his bizarre humour and stranger tales, Ron Fortier again throws the reader into the midst of a very colourful procession of characters, from Father O'Malley and alter boy, Billy, and Sally Page the reporter (possibly the sanest of them all), through gang boss, Peter Malone and his murderous brother, Arnold, to cigarette girl, Laura and her card playing boy friend, Bobby, who also just happens to be chauffeur, helper and housemate to Brother Bones himself. A kaleidoscope of colourful characters who are often not quite what they seem. Or else they are ...

J.Scott Bennett's interpretative performance brings the whole world to life, giving just enough sinister undertone to his reading to embue a tension without distracting from the comedy.

Good, riotous fun with just the right touch of evil. This is the second Brother Bones book I have heard and, although not quite as enthralling as it's predecessor, it was a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Recommended.
My thanks to the right's holder for gifting me a copy of Tapestry of Blood.
