NCIS along with CSI are my favourite tv shows. So, when I got the chance to read and review this book, I simply couldn’t say NO. NCIS set up in New Orleans is one of a kind because it doesn’t involve military cases and murders only, but also the culture and uniqueness of New Orleans itself.

Imagine spending your vacation in New Orleans at the time of Mardi Gras. Everyone is looking at the parade. Costumes everywhere. Suddenly there is a body in the crowd. A body that falls from a terrace, from a

Not a bad TV show tie in. The characterisation is pretty true to the show, although a bit clunkily done at times. I have two main niggles though:

1. Why is the cover of the book the S1 DVD cover when the book is set in s3? (Having Brody on the cover is very misleading; it's actually Gregorio-and-Sebastian-era).
2. How dare they cop out of writing Gregorio into the story?! There should always be Gregorio.
3. It went very preachy at the end.

I stumbled across this book in the library catalog, quite by accident, and being a huge NCIS fan I was really looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately, at least for me, it was disappointing. I found myself not really caring if I picked it up to keep reading and that was when I knew it had to go.

I did really like the NCIS characters, and how they were portrayed. It was faithful to the show and you could see the show's characters in your head as you read. That t

As a very long standing fan of Scott Bakula, I love the N.C.I.S: New Orleans series on tv, and was thrilled when I came across this companion book. It came into the library where I work, and I snapped it up. The characterisation is good, and the story compelling.
I might have given it 5 stars but for one tiny thing, that nevertheless bugged me enormously the whole time I was reading it....
The story features Sonja Percy, a character I really like.
The cover features Meredith Brody, another characte

This was a fun romp of a whodunnit in the milieu of one of my favorite television shows. In this outing, a Naval officer is thrown from a hotel balcony and lands on the trident of King Poseidon during a Mardi Gras krewe parade. Needless to say, the gang from NCIS NOLA is on the job in pretty quick order.

I enjoyed this book not only for the tightly constructed mystery, but also for its walk through the streets of a city I love. I was able to follow the geography and know that the author had done

I enjoyed this book. It reminded me of an episode of the show. The cover is a bit misleading. The book has Sonja and Gregorio and does not have Meredith (who I miss by the way.) I did love the fact the Sonja was in the book (I miss her as well), she has such chemistry with Lesalle and they were so good together. The story was well written and interesting. I hope they publish more.

Good characterization

Plot was good, I could see it lifted right from the show. The characters were true himself and it was nice to see a peek into their internal thought processes as well. I would read more from this author.

Reads just like you were watching an episode. That being said the cover is very deceiving as I would place this around season 3 with Percy and Gregario (although she wasn't in the book) and Brody was already gone. ...more

It is good book

It is good read and I'd read it again because it's a really good read and it is good 👍
A fun tie in to the tv series. Pacing was speedy as was expected as a tv tie in. I love everything New Orleans so this was right up my alley and I loved the Voodoo element.
