In this self-published first novel, Dave Putnam has shown himself to be a gripping storyteller. Readers will find themselves engrossed, turning the pages to see where the twists and turns down the streets and shadows of New Orleans continue to lead them. Putnam cleverly weaves the present with an ever revealing exposure of a past that enterrwines "actual time" with an alluring sense of the underside of New Orleans and its rich heritage of multi-religious cultures.

I cannot wait for the second in the series!

(Okay, and the cover creeped me out but hints at the macabre tone of this wonderfully told story.)

I typically enjoy assigned reading from my college classes, therefore I was looking forward to reading One Bone Rattle. In this case I was sorely disappointed by the reading: the problem I had was with the author's intentional or accidental style, was that the main character was somewhat unbelievable. The majority of the time that main character was portrayed as a "muscle-shirt wearing, knife wielding, tough guy" and yet describes finishing carpentry as "The ornate cornice board around the ceiling and the egg and dart molding used for chair railing accented the opulence of this abode." (Putnam pg 2)and girlie drinks such as "Pink Panty Pull Downs" (Putnam pg 3). Having met the author, I understand that he often incorporates his past work experience (in this case carpentry and bartender) into his writing. I would suggest that the author could benefit from determining which work experiences are relevant to his story.

I purchased this novel by suggestion of my college English professor; I seldom find time to just sit back, read and really enjoy a novel. This novel in particular had me canceling plans with my friends because every page had me wondering what was going to happen next. This book was quite surprising, the beginning till the end threw me in several directions and interesting turns, it was quite exciting. You get a little bit of adventure, crime, mystery, black magic and voodoo, plus a tour of New O'rlean's that you'll never forget; a place where voodoo legend is a reality and the culture is anything but predictable.

This heartfelt, exciting, story of the author's search for his families roots links the mysterious past of his ancestors to the present of his own.

I rarely have time to read books for fun with being a single mother of two, but I kept figuring out a way to get back to reading with this book. Mr. Putnam has a way of pulling you into his writings and makes it hard to put them down. There was mystery, voodoo, and New Orleans culture which keeps you wondering the whole time you are reading. There was a great amount of detail in the way things were described which made you feel as though you were there in New Orleans yourself. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Putnam in person and learned that this was the first of series that he is working on and I am looking forward to reading those. This is definitely a book I would recommend to others I think a wide range of readers will enjoy it!

I usually pick up a book, read the pre-face and make my decision on whether or not I will continue to read it. This book instantly caught my attention and I couldn"t put it down. Midway through reading the book, I got to meet the author which made this book even more interesting to me. He can really tell a story making you feel as if you are really there, not only that, but its a story within another story without the confusion. Mr. Putman did great for this being his first novel and said there was more to come.

I am not much of a reader so starting this book was not easy, but as I read it I found myself wanting more. I liked how I was kept in suspense about what was going to happen next aas he was watching the videos about his father. I enjoyed the details about his surroundings, the Author really made you feel like you were there. Everyone should read this book, I really think we will see other future books from this Author.
