A Skip Langdon Novel.
A Skip Langdon Novel. l. In New Orleans, as in many American cities, crime is Topic A. The annual murder rate is somewhere around 4oo and climbing. In addition, 2,000 people who do not die are shot each year.
Frankly, I don't understand how anyone could NOT like this book. Julie Smith economically gives her characters depth: they not only bleed, they 'breathe' with the spark of life. She expertly uses description to deepen the reader's understanding of a character, relationship or situation - which seems to be a 'lost art' these days. To those of us who do our travelling from our arm chairs, she presents an interesting locale in an inviting way.
House of Blues is the best book I've read in a long time. There are so many things to love about HOUSE OF BLUES, the fifth entry in the Edgar Award-winning Skip Langdon Series. It has real characters in real life situations, playful good romantic relationships and those that are not so lucky, excitement, mayhem, murder, grief and loss. Everything that makes it a good read and an exceptional piece of literature.
HOUSE OF BLUES - Good Smith, Julie - 5th in Skip Langdon series. I love books set in New Orleans.
Julie Smith's claim to the New Orleans crime scene is indisputable.
