Summary

RAN AWAY. So began a score of advertisements every week in the New Orleans newspapers, advertising for slaves who’d fled their masters. But the Turk, Hüseyin Pasha, posted no such advertisement when his two lovely concubines disappeared. And when a witness proclaimed he’d seen the “devilish infidel” hurl their dead bodies out a window, everyone was willing to believe him the murderer. Only Benjamin January, who knows the Turk of old, is willing to seek the true culprit, endangering his own life in the process.

Not the best so far.

This was a bit of a let down, it wasn't as well rounded as the other stories. This is where we hear Aisha's story but it seems a bit choppy. It also attempts to introduce or make us aware of another ethnic group in New Orleans and the new world, but the story telling isn't as rich. It has put me off the series will read then all!

These Books are Amazing

The Benjamin January books are extraordinary. The historical detail, character development and suspense are wonderful. I was so excited to see them on audible, I hope the rest of the series will become available.

I think Ron Butler does an excellent job with narration. I have seen some complaints from other listeners, but I disagree with their point of view. The January novels are not written in first person, so it does not make sense to have a narrator who sounds only like a 6"4" free black man of color from New Orleans. Mr. Butler is able to perform multiple character's voices.

I love this series and am so excited to see it available on audible! I hope to be able to listen to the rest of the novels.
