"Fans of true-crime murder mysteries won't want to miss this one."Booklist, STARRED Review on The Perfect Place to Die It's 1918, WW1 is in full swing, and a Spanish Influenza outbreak is on the horizon. In the midst of the chaos, families are being terrorized and people are being killed by a lone man with an axe. As Gianna and her friend Jake investigate the heinous crimes, she realizes she's connected to the killer in a way she could have never imagined. Gianna is the average seventeen-year-old girl living in 1918 New Orleans. She worries about her family's store, the great war, and a mysterious illness that's about to take hold of the city she loves. It doesn't help that there also appears to be a mad man on the loose in her neighborhood. The attacks started as burglaries but soon escalate to cold blooded murder. There's a killer out there, and the police can't seem to figure out how to stop him. Gianna enlists the help of her friend Jake to investigate. And as they study the crimes, they see a common link between the victims, and Gianna can't help but wonder if it's the same man who attacked her family years before. As Gianna gets closer to the killer, she discovers a connection between them that she never would have suspected.

I received an audioARC from the publisher through Netgalley, all views are my own.

2.75 stars, The narrator wasn't great, and the ending was unsatisfactory. It was just overall a meh book. I did like the parallels between today's pandemic & the Spanish flu. But other than that it just fell flat. The characters were okay, but a bit flat. Only the one MC was really explored at all. There were too many unanswered questions at the end.

Mehso-so

Set during the 1918 influenza pandemic, modern readers will find strong parallels to the COVID-19 pandemic. 17-year old Gianna & her family survived a brutal attack by a crazed axeman who was never caught. But now, years later, the maniac has returned & once again preys on Italian grocers & their families. Well-researched, the supernatural elements here don‘t gel into place. I liked the news articles but never quite connected with the characters.
