Jo-Ann Carson will put a spell on you with this story about blues singer Maggy Malone. The suspense never lets up as we follow Maggy - and a series of murders - from the Black Cat Bar, to her houseboat at the Shady Lane Marina, to police stations and libraries and thrilling boat rides in fair and foul weather. The music quotes heading each chapter were a great addition to this wonderful story.

HASH(0x9d0fbbdc) out of 5 stars Sensuous music of the Blues Jan. 21 2016
By Helena korin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Maggie, a blues singer, witnesses a murder in a back alley. Not wanting to get involved with the police she keeps the dying man's words to herself. But when she meets the victim's brother, Logan, she confesses. He's drop dead gorgeous but lives his life by much more conventional rules than Maggie who doesn't trust cops. As the chemistry between them ramps up Maggie's intuition begins working overtime. Is she being followed? The murderer could be stalking her. The bone chilling dampness of Canada's west coast is woven into the darkness of the plot as one by one men are murdered. Is her sexy dockside buddy, Hunter, a true friend or could he also be a suspect? Add the hidden stash of cult leader Brother XII's gold to the plot and you have a fast paced suspense relieved by sizzling sex and laced with the sensuous music of the blues. I loved the lyrical sea faring imagery and the musical quotes.

The Black Cat Blues

Welcome to The Black Cat Blues bar and Maggy Malone. When a man is found on death's door all she can do is call 911 and hold him while he dies. But before he does he says two words - or partial words. She's left with two words that may or may not mean anything and a mystery to solve while she sings the blues and tries to decide who she can trust - before she becomes the next victim. I loved this book. And it's even better if you read it with jazz playing softly in the background and a glass or two of wine.

HASH(0x9d0fd084) out of 5 stars Wow.... I could not put this ... Jan. 18 2016
By B - Published on Amazon.com

Wow....I could not put this one down. Fast moving and suspenseful. It had a touch of romance, some tense thrilling moments, a little bit of gore, a little bit of psychic ability and really kept you on your toes while reading. Maggy finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, a few times but manages with the help of the two "hunks" in her life and a cop that didn't give up, to prove she can do more than just sing.

HASH(0x9d0fd0fc) out of 5 stars VANCOUVER...CAT BLUES ARE BLACK? March 24 2016
By MasterI - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read for 1st time this author & I'm impress with her cunning. A PI dead & the Singer who find it by chance?

Good premise, the plot interesting. The author know her characters & move them with ease in the scenery.

Good thinking that the plot although interesting doesn't cut in different mini-plots. A new author's problem that Carson avoids carefully.

Told you more than the description...NO...I HATE...SPOILERS.

An interesting reading that leave you wanting more & read without stop. Even me, gave Carson 5☆ & it's just begginingMY PERSONAL VIEW: Indie Authors doesn't had a troupe of people behind them (like when you had a Publish House, PR, etc).

They had to work hard to publish their books for themselves. Lets help them, you can post a positive real deal review pointing what you find out of the box and don't had to bite the authors head.

Lets face it "big name authors" are basking in their "earn names". Indies are working hard & they're the future of literature.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I'm a reader of many years and I'm in for: Read, Revise & Review.

I 'm honest for me, other readers & authors. If you don't do that & reach the authors how we can had better books?
