2 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
Miami, 1980. The cop: Det. Max Mingus, barely keeping his head above the filth. The corpse: decomposed, with a tarot card in its bloated belly. The bloody trail: six more bodies at the victim's house The suspect: fork-tongued crimelord Solomon Boukman, king of the streets. In a city rife with drugs, voodoo and corruption, finding the truth and protecting the good guys from the bad is almost impossible. The closer Max gets to Solomon Boukman, the more he finds himself in his power. And once Boukman has a hold of you, he never, ever lets go. 'A cracking opening. . . with many turns and twists. A powerful and original story.' Independent

Stone's 2nd crime novel is told from several POVs that bog down the storyline at times. His attention to detail and character building really help flesh out the characters so you become attached and root for them in the end. Max is the bad cop and Joe is the good cop and Solomon Boukman is the bad guy. Max & Joe get tangled up with the Haitian when they start investigating a bizarre case where a tarot card was found in the victims stomach. 4🌟

I picked this up at the library sale a few months ago purely by the cover. I'm more than halfway in and it's just now starting to pick up the pace. It doesn't help that there are quite a few POV & MC's bc of it. The 3 MC are Max, Joe, and Carmine. Max & Joe are Miami detectives and Carmine is a Haitian pimp that's unfortunate enough to be the weak link in Solomon's empire of cocaine smuggling & voodoo killings.
