This is one of the rare books that wouldn't let me sleep at night. The best New Orleans book I have ever read.

I won this through the Goodreads First Reads program.

I really like the setting of the book - a behind the scenes view of pre-Katrina French Quarter, New Orleans. It seems very much like a place that I would love to visit. And though I've never made it to New Orleans, everything matches what friends who lived in the city prior to Katrina have described to me.

I found the characters to be engaging and interesting. The chapters alternated between the two main character's view points. While occasiona

The authors delve into New Orleans French Quarter in a suspenseful tale of haunted dreams, voodoo, ghosts, murder mysticism, revenge and unexpected courage. I found the characters to be interesting. In some ways the bar hopping reminded me of how friends have described Mardi Gras to me. I,ve never been to New Orleans . This book was a really fascinating read and very well written.

This crime novel’s strength is its setting: The French Quarter in New Orleans. Most of the action takes place in the cheap bars, restaurants and stores frequented by the waiters, waitresses, bartenders, dish washers, dancers, fortune tellers, musicians and hustlers who work through the night and sleep during the day. They live paycheck to paycheck, drink to excess, smoke heavily, indulge in drugs and don’t judge one another. They are not unfamiliar crime and violence.

*won from the publisher through goodreads first reads contest.
This is a murder mystery full of bar-hopping, drug sub-culture, the french quarter and voudon. Sounds like it would be gripping, gritty and realistic right? Sadly, it's not. I found this book to be boring. While I wanted to know what happened to Sunshine, I finished the book going..."oh, OK"-shrug-. Just not that well written. This book felt VERY disjointed, the characters just weren't that interesting, and I felt the true flavor of N
I won a copy of this book from Goodreads first reads. NO Quarter is a murder mystery set in the Quarter of pre Katrina New Orleans . This book is written as chapters which alternate between the point of view of the two main characters Bones and Maestro. I found that reading the same bit of action from two points of views bogged down the story. However seeing the Quarter bar scene from the point of view of the residents rather than tourists was interesting.
