Street Music ~ by Timothy Hallinan

I read the 8 prior novels in this series and absolutely loved them.  When the story ended in the book 8 and I was completely satisfied when I heard/read that there would be no more.  Well a couple years went by and I saw #9 on the Audible shelves.  Um?  Okay let’s see.  I listened to the sample and read the blurbs and put it in my wish list.  After a few months I took it out of my wish list as it felt anti-climactic.  Then a few months later I saw it touted by a fellow member of a reading group.  Huh?  Okay – let’s look again.

I read the 8 prior novels in this series and absolutely loved them. When the story ended in the book 8 and I was completely satisfied when I heard/read that there would be no more. Well a couple years went by and I saw #9 on the Audible shelves. Um? Okay let’s see. I listened to the sample and read the blurbs and put it in my wish list. After a few months I took it out of my wish list as it felt anti-climactic. Then a few months later I saw it touted by a fellow member of a reading group. Huh? Okay – let’s look again.

Well, dear reader,  I read the same blurbs plus more listener reviews and then I sampled, bought and downloaded. I started listening to Victor Bovine narrating and it’s as of old – almost. 

Rose and Poke now have a new baby boy.  Maiow, their 15-year old adopted daughter,  is insecure about her identity. The neighborhood is as usual and the old bar where the expats hang is the same.  Except one night Bob Campeau, a regular customer, goes missing.  Meanwhile, an old woman from more than a decade in the past turns up.  

And with this story the tales of Poke Rafferty are finishes up. – I’m sad.
