They say it's about the journey, not the destination.
Charlene "Charlie" Moreau is back in St. Francisville, Louisiana, to work on a movie. One night she stumbles across the body of a Civil War reenactor, the second murdered in two days. Charlie is shocked to learn that her father - a guide on the Journey, a historic paddle wheeler that's sponsoring the reenactment - is a suspect.
Meanwhile, Ethan Delaney, new to the FBI's Krewe of Hunters, is brought in on the case. He and Charlie have a history of their own, dating back to when he rescued her from a graveyard - led there by a Confederate ghost!
Charlie arranges a Mississippi River cruise so she and Ethan can get close to the reenactors and find out who knows what and who has a motive. They discover a lot more as they resume the relationship that ended 10 years ago but might die, along with them, on the Journey.

When you combine Civil War reenactors, historical cemeteries, ghosts, and author Heather Graham, you know you’re in for a captivating tale.

Narrator Luke Daniels does a superb job giving each character their own unique voice. His expressions of emotions heighten the story. His timing is spot on.

The story is filled with suspense, action, and an abundance of history. Moving at a steady pace, the story has a number of surprises in store for you before it comes to its heart-stopping end.

The characters are likable and well-developed. The author makes the ghost characters intriguing and engaging. While several characters from prior stories were involved, new readers/listeners to the series won’t be left in the dark.

The author blends the present with history and adds a touch of the paranormal to create a mesmerizing story. The budding romance of old friends adds depth to the story. A tantalizing tale of ghosts, murder, and mystery that will hold your attention from beginning to end. A perfect story for history lovers and mystery buffs alike.

DARKEST JOURNEY may just entice you to explore the area along the Mississippi River and Louisiana (without the ghosts, of course).

FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this audio book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

Thanks for dropping by today. Are you a Civil War buff? Have you ever attended a Civil War reenactment?


  1. Wow, that sounds like quite a mixture. And I do like a dash of paranormal with my mysteries...

  2. This really is an interesting context for a mystery, Mason! The whole Civil War re-enactment culture is fascinating, and the setting looks great, too. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Trapped on a river boat with a killer. Fun!
    They have Civil War reenactments in the area but I've never visited the sites during one.

  4. I love ghosts. I may have to try this one!


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
