Review of ‘Crescent City’

Posted on Updated on

Alec Winters, a 40-year-old native of New Orleans, though in good shape, looks like a normal person. But, he has another personality, one that was brought out when he came to his sister Cat’s rescue when their father was trying to rape her. To some he’s seen as a bright angel of redemption, but, to the evil, he’s seen as a giant, red devil, come to take them to the depths of hell.

Crescent City by Chariss K. Walker is a dark paranormal thriller that follows Alex as he moves around the Crescent City protecting the weak from their tormentors. It is also the story of Vivien Simon, an investigative reporter who senses there’s more to the story of a few grisly murders than meets the eye, and who is relentless in her pursuit of the truth.

A tense story that is for the most part well-paced, this tale will chill you as Alec races against time to save his love, from a greedy man who is willing to kill her rather than see her belong to someone else. It’s only with Vivien’s help that he can do it, but there’s a possible cost; it might mean exposing Cat to more trauma. He is faced with an almost impossible choice. I won’t spoil it by telling you how the story turns out, but I assure you that you’ll like it. It did get a little choppy near the end, almost as if the author was rushing to get it done, which is too bad, but didn’t spoil what’s on balance a pretty good story.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I give it three and a half stars.
