Product Details


Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Lots of Louisiana color, pinpoint plotting and two highly likable characters who chase a cunning killer with a taste for games distinguish the latest case (after No Mardi Gras for the Dead ) for New Orleans Medical Examiner Andy Broussard and psychologist Kit Franklyn. During a forensic science convention in the Crescent City, accruing corpses feature clean cuts to the heart and missing eyelids; Scrabble tiles are found near each body. The extensive plotting ranges from the macabre details of the killings to the actions of a lithe, wise stripper and even a clue cut from a Where's Waldo book. Donaldson sets his sleuths on far-ranging leads, yet wastes little motion as he produces a smart, convincing solution that encompasses all the densely laid clues. There's plenty of atmosphere too. While the French Quarter offers its alluring blend of the historical and the colorfully lewd, Broussard wraps his sizable chops around seafood po' boy sandwiches, and Kit deals with assorted threats, desired and not, to her single life.

From School Library Journal

YA-A fast-paced novel featuring the detective team of Andy Broussard, New Orleans Chief Medical Examiner, and Kit Franklyn, a criminal psychologist. At a series of murder scenes, the victims are found to be missing an eyelid, a copy of a newspaper is present, and the Scrabble tiles KOJE are on the bodies. As the details begin to unfold, the clues point to a killer with a knowledge of forensics. This presents Andy and Kit with several hundred suspects, since the annual convention of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences is being held in the Big Easy. Once the sleuths think they have pieced together the puzzle, it becomes a race against time to arrest the culprit before he strikes again. The tension will keep even the most reluctant YA readers turning the pages until the surprising conclusion is reached.

3.0 out of 5 stars Let me saying hmmm.... Aug. 29 2014
By ladysown TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a kindle version of New Orleans Requiem by DJ Donaldson. It was sent to me on behalf of Astor and Blue.

I have to admit to being a bit .. perplexed as to how to write this review. The book surprised me in the ending, and I enjoyed the surprise, but I felt unsettled when I finished, like the ending wasn't quite enough or something along that line.

The style of writing was straight-forward. The careful building of a case against an individual after a series of killings. The fitting together of all the pieces when you learned who the true murderer was. It was all quite snug in retrospect, but I was left feeling like there should have been something more. I find myself turning back to the book for see if I missed something, but I haven't.

It's a bit odd that.

Do I think I would read more of the Andy Broussard/Kit Franklin mysteries? I don't know. See I wonder if part of my issue was with the format I received, a kindle book that kept having breaks in the flow from the "headers" of pages being inserted improperly into the text. This meant the flow of reading was continually interrupted.

It was neat to have the surprise at the end. I appreciated that and then the tying to pieces altogether so I knew how they fit and why it made sense now.

Overall a good book. A good medical, forsenic mystery.

Go check it out for yourself. You'll find it at amazon below.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great medical/mystery thriller! Oct. 16 1997
By c623393@showme.missouri.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was the first of the Andy Broussard/Kit Franklin mysteries that I had read, that made me wish that I had discovered this series earlier. The medical detail the book is based on is fabulous. The characters, Andy in particular, felt like old friends by the end of the novel. I personally love New Orleans, and I found myself truly back there while reading this book. Although some of his books are hard to find, it is definitely worth the effort to read DJ Donaldson's work.

This New Orleans series of Andy & Kit could go on forever and I'd be a VERY happy camper. I've even gone to the local bookstore and purchased those that are not formatted for Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Orleans Requiem June 23 2013
By Ann Louise - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was blown away by this novel; it certainly is a page-turner that will cause you to forget about anything that needs doing. The main characters, Andy Broussard and Kit Franklin, are so well-developed that they seem like neighbors instead of fictional people. What a clever story line D.J. Donaldson has given us; I sure didn't guess correctly about who the murderer was. I've got two more in this series that I'm sure will provide delightful reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book kept you guessing until the end. May 29 2013
By L.L.Goss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Andy and Kit are a great team, add in a National Convention of similar teams and you have the makings of a first-class mystery. Could it be a serial killer or just maybe someone attending the convention? With all the twists and turns you expect from D. J. Donaldson this still keeps you intrigued and entertained. Can't wait for the next one.
