As a follow up to “Catch A Ghost” from the Hell Or High Water series, Long Time Gone focuses on Tom Boudreaux as he finally faces his tumultuous past. Set in New Orleands in the middle of a hurricane, Tom found himself arrested for murder and with his partner Prophet helping to clear his name. With death and past ghosts on their feet, Tom and Prophet realized that there’s actually a lot more that they have to do to neither one of them expected to be confronted with.
I’m actually glad that this one made up for the rather “bland” mood of the first book in the series – plot wise. Prophet and Tom’s story has gotten better and here, the sequencing is much more organized. I also loved the fact that it’s not very predictable this time and there is an element of surprise, though, I still couldn’t get over how similar this was to Cut & Run. I know it’s unfair of me to compare both series but hey, I’m on the third book which means I’m actually starting to like the series after all.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
