I am typically not into mysteries or thrillers, but this book is absolutely captivating. Nick Stone is an excellent writer. I often find that with many writers they include way too much "filler" information. The kind of extra stuff you end up skimming over because it doesn't hold your interest or is irrelevant.

Nick spent his early years in Haiti, before returning to England to finish his schooling. As a teenager he took up boxing, but gave it up when he won a place to read history at Cambridge.

Nick Stone has great imagination and probably recall. Haiti cannot really be described unless one has been there to experience the poverty and deplorable conditioners.

Max Mingus, Stone's former cop, is also a convicted felon and an admitted murderer. Sprung from prison, Max is mourning his wife's death when he is offered a lucrative job - if he can find the kidnapped son of a rich Haitian.

Max is not the first investigator hired to find the missing Charlie Carver. The other investigators experienced not only failure but personal horror.

The missing child is the son of Allain & Francesca but the grandfather, Gustav, controls ...almost everything, especially the money.

Max discovers much more than he bargained for and finds very little is what he has been led to believe. Evil is very close to the surface but even as he peels back the dirt covering the crypt, the fate of little Charlie remains elusive.

Even though the patois screams ENOUGH! Editing, please! Try to ignore the errors in sentence structure and grammar. It is worth it.
This review is long overdue. Mr Clarinet is hands down one of the best books I've read in years. I am typically not into mysteries or thrillers, but this book is absolutely captivating. Nick Stone is an excellent writer. I often find that with many writers they include way too much "filler" information. The kind of extra stuff you end up skimming over because it doesn't hold your interest or is irrelevant. Not with this book. I read every last word. Do yourself a favor and read this book!
Got this book at a very good price, and thank you for that! Wasn't sure if I was going to be able to buy into the protagonist at first, but he won me over in a big way. The depth of detail on life in Haiti was devastating, realistic and beautiful. The intricate relationships were well-formed and slowly revealed, adding to the tension of the book. I was sucked in by the book blurb and the first few pages, and the book certainly delivered on that promise. If you love intrigue, the smell of the spirit world, and can handle some hard realities, buy it. You won't regret it!
I’ve read almost all of the current crime/thriller authors books and was looking for someone new. Amazon recommended Nick Stone. I read The Verdict and enjoyed his writing style and story so I tried Mr. Clarinet and wasn’t disappointed.
Clearly the Author has a deep understanding of Haiti. It's clear they now the geography, the people, the poverty and the underlying culture of white and black magic. Very well written and I will no doubt read more from this author.
This was my first Nick Stone book and I'll be back for more. The descriptions of Haiti make you feel like you're right there and are accurate. Had me guessing til the end.
This is a very good detective story with a lot of twists and turns. The setting is very conducive to the story line and helps set up the plot. Characters are believable and realistic.
I liked the characters in the book. I was most fascinated by VP, especially what he was like. I thought some of the language was a bit unnecessary. Overall, I enjoyed the book.
