One thought on “Jazz Funeral

  1. EXCERPT At 250 a pop, fumed a red faced man, you d think we d at least get a drink The shrill, uncertain buzz they d noticed was developing a hysterical note This was a party that wasn t fun Bemused, Skip and Steve worked their way back around to the front Ham I could see, said Skip He could have had to work late it s his busiest time But where s Ti Belle Oh, bout two houses away, I d say Approaching at a dead run, having just parked a Thunderbird with a squeal of wheels Skip had heard the squea [...]

  2. This book was OK, but I had a hard time warming up to it and then another hard time getting myself to finish it The first chapter did a very poor job of making the reader want to continue, and I actually wished I d abandoned it at that point On the other hand, the quality of the writing is better than many police mysteries so at some point in the future, I might give another one in this series a try to make sure I m evaluating it fairly.

  3. Perfectly adequate summer read There was very little suspense and it wasn t too thrilling The mystery wasn t too surprising to anyone who watches Law and Order SUV It wasn t engrossing enough for me to want to read in the series It was just an okay book and my Kindle edition contained lots of typos.

  4. I started reading this while in New Orleans for Jazz Fest While I enjoyed the overall setting of the book, New Orleans during Jazz Fest, the plot and characters never drew me in to caring much about them This was my first Skip Langdon novel and I d be willing to give another one a chance but I m not rushing out to get one.

  5. This third outing was pretty meh for me Though I enjoyed the setting and music, I never cared about the characters The resolution of the mystery was ok, but I struggled to keep reading to get there.

  6. I wanted to love this book, as I love New Orleans and Jazz Fest The setting was great with local color, the characters were interesting, but somehow it just seemed to drag I felt like I was slogging through a humid NOLA day without much energy I would give the author another try, though, especially as she has a couple books set in San Francisco

  7. I enjoyed the New Orleans ambience and like Skip Langdon, the ian female homicide detective Smith gives the reader a chance to hear the thoughts of various characters including suspects in a way that allows you to get a feeling for their personalities without tipping her hand about who is the guilty one.

  8. I have read ten books this year that I have gotten free for my Kindle and four of them have been mysteries I think that the publishers hope that once they hook readers into a mystery series, we will purchase the others in the series I suspect this works for some readers, but I am an omnivore and there is only one mystery series that I actually try to keep up with I do really like listening to Laurie R King s Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell series Otherwise, one or two books by a mystery author [...]

  9. Sixteen year old Melody is a talented vocalist and composer, but she has problems her parents don t understand her and her boyfriend dumped her in favor of her best friend Things just got worse her brother, the well known head of JazzFest, was murdered Her young life is shattered and she runs away from home with no money, no place to stay, and no plans Six foot tall Ship Langdon is a homicide detective in the New Orleans Police Department, but she has problems her insecurities, a long distance b [...]

  10. great read one of the suspects is completely CRAZY in a funny kind of way Some typos, but toward the end too many typo s to count could use a few pair of eyes to read before it is released in a e format to have caught all these errors It could have been a 4 star book if not for all those errors, which disrupts the reading flow for me Other wise a very good book and alot of things to learn about New Orleans, which I have never had the pleasure to visit, even though I am from and live in the sout [...]

  11. Skip Langdon gets caught up in the death Murder of a prominent New Orleans personality and the disappearance of his teenage sister Family squabbles, the sisters time on the streets of the city and an unexpected ending to it all This is the second of the 9 novels that I downloaded to my Kindle and I am looking forward to he next one Plenty of local New Orleans color to be found here.

  12. Great readCouldn t put it down the twist and turns every time I thought I knew who was the murderer no not that one

  13. Good storylineIt was a good book I am giving it three stars because it would have been better without the language and sex

  14. Pretty good but at least the kindle version needs a proper copy edit wed instead of well and similar repeatedly.

  15. Jazz Funeral reviewNot a very gripping book Also not very plausible If I had read this book first I would not have read and enjoyed other books in this series

  16. Exciting, Unusual, Cross Genre Murder Mystery Coming of Age NovelThis is an amazing novel, masterfully weaving elements of divergent genres, and adding a new twist There are several protagonists in this story, and it is told from different points of view The extra twist is that the reader knows that one of these people killed a man, but which one Elements of the plot could point to many different characters as the killer, but it does seem the work of a single killer The motive is absent everyone [...]

  17. New Orleans MysteriesI really like New Orleans and mystery stories or mystical stories about the Crescent City Fortunately there are quite a few good authors who write about NOLA and Julie Smith is among the best I ve read the Talba Wallis series where I was the introduced to Skip Langdon Since I enjoyed the Talba Wallis series so much I grabbed a copy of Jazz Funeral of off BookBub and thoroughly enjoyed the same great intrigue experienced before The characters are multi dimensional and the plo [...]

  18. Wow, so much better than I expected Of course I read it because I ve enjoyed this author before, but this book shows an exceptional talent for character exploration Weave that in with a story that captivates the mind, heart and senses emotionally charged Intriguing, to explore the minds of each character while being led through a runaways experience of New Orleans, and the experiences of those who are looking for her But why did she run, and who killed her brother I couldn t put the book down.

  19. Jazz FestI chose this book because I was heading to New Orleans and they mention many of the landmarks I saw I did not realize it was written in 1993, before Katrina and 9 11, and before everyone had a cell phone That said it is slightly dated The story is a good one and the mystery surprised me in the end I had not read other Skip Langdon books, but the characters are developed enough to be enjoyable.

  20. A two star review doesn t look good but it was ok is my honest opinion I kept thinking this was like a Romance Novel than Murder Mystery She writes with a lot of pov changes and internal dialogue The mystery was decent, the music and street scenes of New Orleans were interesting, the characters credible I just wished for showing and less telling.

  21. Sweet southern murderJulie Smith writes like silk flowing from a bolt of cloth to the ground The writing, scenery and dialogue are so smooth I was sad to have the book end Really an amazing read I give no spoilers, sorry.

  22. Brother bluesA musical nameMelody A young girl in NOLA, learns about life, after the death of her adored brother Music, the heart of the city, is her refuge This is a story about love and family and murder Good resolution.

  23. Don t bother It was a good story to start, but got side tracked into every characters phycological issues and two thirds the story was consumed by that Too bad the author didn t stick to the murder.

  24. New Orleans, a city with its own vibe What an interesting and fun read Always loved the New Orleans scene and this story brings that back One can fell the underlying excitement of the Quarter.

  25. Multifaceted plotThe plot is multifaceted and tells several different characters stories The characters are fully drawn and believable The identity of the murderer is surprising.

  26. junoesque detective gets her culprit.Another complex, but believable mystery, well written scenes and conversations, excellent transitions from character to character my only complaint is the dysfunctional work relationship

  27. Death of a seriesThis will be the last book I read in this series Overworked characters and plodding plot Every character received pages of soul searching introspection until I just wanted to scream and yet I felt nothing for any of them Can t believe I read the whole thing.
