About the Author:

Ray Celestin is the author of The Axeman's Jazz, winner of the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger for Best First Novel Award. He lives in London.

Review:

“Gripping. Rich description and meticulous attention to historical detail.”
- Publishers Weekly

Ray Celestin skillfully depicts the desperate revels of that idiosyncratic city and its bizarre legends in his first novel, The Axeman.


- Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review [Praise for Ray Celestin]

“"This is the sequel to the prizewinning The Axeman's Jazz. Under the constant threat of bloodshed, the three stories gradually weave together into an intriguing portrait of a time and a place. The young Louis Armstrong turns up, and his powerful, searching, explosive jazz pulses through the pages, a soundtrack to Ida's increasingly dangerous investigation.”
- The Spectator (U.K)

Dead Man’s Blues is a magnificent crime novel, at least as good as his stunning debut. His portrait of an edgy, sexy, corrupt, dangerous, deeply racially prejudiced city, where savage violence cohabited with exciting music, is totally absorbing.


- The Times (London)
