Benjamin January Series (in order) written by Barbara Hambly

S. Schwartz "romonko"
 
A Free Man of Color (Benjamin January, Book 1)
A Free Man of Color (Benjamin January, Book 1)
"This is the first in the Benjamin January series.  This is a wonderful series about a little known era ( New Orleans before 1850), and with a wonderful strong hero.  These books must be read in order."
Fever Season (Benjamin January, Book 2)
Fever Season (Benjamin January, Book 2)
"Second in this wonderful series.  More of Ms. Hambly's spare and chilling writing with true historical situations.  Her research into her era is impeccable."
Graveyard Dust (Benjamin January, Book 3)
Graveyard Dust (Benjamin January, Book 3)
"This one is probably one of my favourites in Ms. Hambly's wonderful series.  All kinds of excitement - murder , voodoo and lots with Ben's friend Hannibal."
Sold Down the River (Benjamin January, Book 4)
Sold Down the River (Benjamin January, Book 4)
"These books are so wonderful, and each one grabs you as soon as you begin reading.  This one is probably one of the best descriptions of plantation life from the slaves perspective.."
Die Upon a Kiss (Benjamin January, Book 5)
Die Upon a Kiss (Benjamin January, Book 5)
"A truly wonderful depiction of opera as presented during this era.  We get a good look at the performers and as usual see into the much darker side of society life in New Orleans."
Wet Grave (Benjamin January, Book 6)
Wet Grave (Benjamin January, Book 6)
"As usual Ms. Hambly takes time to set her scene for this book, but as usual the historical research is impeccable and the story is gripping.  Make no mistake.  This is a dark series."
Days of the Dead (Benjamin January, Book 7)
Days of the Dead (Benjamin January, Book 7)
"In this one we see Benjamin and his Rose in Mexico pursuing a case.  Totally a wonderful description of Mexico in 1835 and the political upheavals that are there then."
Dead Water (Benjamin January, Book 8)
Dead Water (Benjamin January, Book 8)
"The 2004 entry and the last so far in this wonderful series!  If you've gotten this far, you will be as hooked as I am.  This one is a real winner!"
