Publisher's Summary

Down in Beaux River, Louisiana, someone's after Freddy Tango. After another wild night at his bar, Freddy's Lounge, he arrives home to find his front door riddled with bullet holes and his windows shattered. His live-in grandfather, Cecil Tango, drunk and angry, a pistol within reach, raves about being attacked by a long-dead outlaw named Percy Yates. Freddy discounts Cecil's accusations as alcohol-induced delusions. Following that fateful night, Freddy decides to seek justice with the assistance of a couple of friends. As he begins fitting together pieces of a sinister puzzle, Freddy realizes there is a kernel of truth to his grandfather's claims. Someone is looking for Percy Yates's treasure. And they believe Cecil Tango has it. Up against unseen evils determined to harm his grandfather, Freddy is ill-prepared for the forces out to get them. But he will stop at nothing to uncover the truth and protect his loved ones. Known for his laid-back, personable writing style and complex plotting, Ashley Blake weaves a tale intertwined with a healthy dose of action and suspense where characters are not who they seem and paths often take unexpected turns. From the author of Dear Arial, and The Parent Killer, comes a classic mystery that is sure to entertain.

What a thrilling ride!!!

Where does Dark Bayou rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was my first audiobook and I couldn't have picked a better one! I can't wait to experience another book by Blake.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The whole book had so many twist and turns,I couldn't stop going to the next chapter.

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

Ted had all the voices and accents in such a way that I could picture the story in my mind vividly.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Heads will roll.

Any additional comments?

I found myself laughing out loud in many parts. Ashley Blake has a twisted sense of humor I thoroughly enjoy!
