I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

The Axeman's Jazz

The Axeman's Jazz - Ray Celestin
The Axeman's Jazz is one of those books that you find yourself savouring every word. Dark, brooding, almost poetic at times, it contains everything. Murder, racial superstition, illegal relationships, police corruption and very bad weather. The story has three different sets of individuals trying to find and stop the Axeman.  I enjoyed reading all three accounts though I enjoyed Michael's investigation the most. It had quite a large cast and I lost track a couple of times when I picked the book back up again. For this reason I plan on reading it again over a much shorter time scale.
I'm hoping for a sequel in the near future. 
Thanks to to the publisher and the author for the copy via NetGalley.
