Voodoo Hideaway

We rated this book:


Elrod has slept in many alleys while bumming around the country, but never once in all the alleys of all the cities he’s been in, has a door appeared right out of the blue. He knew better than to go through the door, but curiosity got the better of him, and that’s when he found himself in the lobby of a swanky jazz club. The next morning, the door was gone, his money was gone, and his troubles were just beginning. Elrod found himself in the middle of a criminal conspiracy that took place in another time.

Voodoo Hideaway is the debut novel by Vance Cariaga, a writer, editor, and journalist from London. Cariaga presents the reader with a classic noir style crime drama with a rather interesting time travel twist. Elrod and the rest of the characters can only travel between the years 1949 and 1999. For the most part, Cariaga’s characters seem out of place in their own decade. Throwing them into the wrong time makes this novel a lot more interesting. With Cariaga’s descriptive writing style, you can see, hear, and smell all that his characters experience. Take the trip to the Voodoo Hideaway for some hot jazz and one cool crime story.
