A pretty good read, but this book is very bloody and violent. There are various kinds of child abuse and murder, lots of fighting with plenty of gore. This more of a book for men then women. It is not for young people and definately not for anyone under sixteen. The editing was actually pretty good. Since this was a free book, I was pleasently surprized by this. It is a decent length and had a satisfying conclusion, also a rarity in a free book and in a series book. The plot was well thought out and not confusing, there was not an over abundance of characters and the mystery was intriging without having a lot of convolutions. I enjoyed this book, although the blood and gore were a little much for me. There is some cursing, sexual referances and no preaching. I think this book would make a good movie. I will read more by this author. For adult readers.

meh

Story was okay. Did not blow me away. So many typos in the book that it started to become annoying. Some pages had several typos each! Very poor proof reading. Just an okay book.

    An interesting storyline but so many typos

    and mistakes in punctuation it was distracting! I enjoyed the storyline's connections to Haiti. Might read another in the series sometime but hope the copy is cleaned up.

    would have been more stars with better editing

    This was a good story, had a very good, twisting plot. The editing was horrible and I found that very distracting. For example, the word 'if' was replaced by the word 'it' in nearly every instance. Words were left out of sentences. Quotation marks were frequently left off, making it difficult to tell when someone was speaking.

    Could have been a great book if the poor editing had not prevented me from being immersed in the story.

    I appreciate the fact that an author can come up with a story, and then actually writes it down for us to read. So - the author gets a star for that. Beyond that, I found it to be a so-so book. Not bad -- just not worth my time to read it. Sorry.....

    Fair...

    It was a promising plot, but the delivery was a bit flawed. There are details that show up out of the blue and don't quite make sense, and the dialogue does not sound like New Orleans. It was almost good detective fiction.
