    Big Easy, voodoo murder mystery

    Although I don't normally read police/murder mysteries, I thoroughly enjoyed Big Easy. The book takes place in post-Katrina New Orleans, such a unique city, and someone is murdering street people in the French Quarter. Detective Tony Nicosia is assigned to solve these homicides. The killer has left grisly clues that indicate these deaths have a connection with voodoo, and all are strangely connected to a nearby mission. Unschooled in voodoo, Nicosia enlists the help of Wyatt Thomas and Mama Mulate, a powerful voodoo mambo, to help stop this deranged killer or killers. The story progresses through several unexpected twists and turns, especially towards the end of the book. Eric Wilder writes in a concise, easy-to-read manner that gives the reader just enough details to make the story enjoyable. I liked the way he wove the story around real restaurants/bars in the French Quarter and nearby areas. He apparently is very familiar with New Orleans and its culture, and did quite a bit of research on voodoo. I liked everything about the book, including the cover depicting the tomb of Marie Laveau, the most famous voodoo queen. Having everything that could translate into a good movie, I could easily see this book being adapted to a film version.

    Wow! amazing book! Eric Wilder is a a amazing writer. I Loved Pr

    Wow! amazing book! Eric Wilder is a a amazing writer. I Loved Primal Creatures and when Eric asked if I wanted to review this one too I was so excited! I can't get enough of Wyatt Thomas! he is great at what he does and there is no one he doesn't know! and I have a big old soft spot for Inspector Tony he is just a big ol'

    This book The first of the Wyatt Thomas novels centers around Murder, Voodoo and family intrigue and Lost Heritage. It all comes together in a chilling tale of torture as a serial killer threatens the Big Easy. Wyatt and Tony enlist the help of the local Voodoo Mambo Mama Mulate in order to help solve the case.

    Meanwhile Wyatt is trying to help Celeste and her Father Maurice find his family. All he remembers from his life in new Orleans as a boy is his mothers funeral, a strange service and tomb in an old graveyard, a tomb with no name just x's written on the tomb. Wyatt is sure he knows what tomb it is but is it worth there lives to find out?

    I couldn't get enough of this book I loved it from beginning to end! if you like murder mystery's then you will definitely like this! I don't read a lot of mystery books but I love these ones!
