Publisher's Summary

It was a typical February night in 1951 when she stepped into one of Nashville’s many dives and into my life. The blonde asked for my story, wanting to know what had me drinking. She had no idea it was the same thing that had me working at nights, hunting down the monsters that stalk the back alleys of my city.

Back in ’31, the job was just supposed to be another bank heist - in, then out, then we'd be rich. But along with the money, we found that cursed ruby, and nothing was the same again. 

I’d thought about that gem every night for years, but now, in this bar with this dame looking at me all innocent and beautiful, I told her my tale. And that's when our story began. 

D. Alan Lewis mixes the hard-boiled P.I. genre with the darkest elements of the paranormal to create the Voodoo Rumors stories. Set in 1950s Nashville, Thomas Dietrich is cynical yet idealistic; amorous yet full of despair. He’s a man capable of harsh violence and unfettered compassion in a world where the darkest things walk the streets of his city at night.

Great narration by Murdoch Pennington

Just love those 1940s & 50s books & movies that begin with a down & out guy meeting a beautiful mysterious dame in a bar. Murdoch is just the voice for Thomas, kind of like Bogart in Casablana . . . "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all world, she walks into mine." Enjoyed the way Murdoch did a woman's voice, not high, squeaky or unnatural. Also did very convincing voices of all characters, which brought them to life, more so than reading the book. Quite graphic descriptions of gory deaths. But they mostly deserved it. Will listen to other Alan Lewis books on tape, and especially books narrated by Pennington.

intriguing and made me want more

The narrator immediately had me with his voice and I have to say that the performance was wonderful. the story felt a little clunky in places but overall ensnared my attention and in the end it did leave me looking for the further adventures of the protagonist. definitely going to be on the lookout for the next story, and maybe it will be longer - something this probably could have been. but overall I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to fans of noir and paranormal.
