Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Cape Noire. Located on the Northwest Coast, Cape Noire is a booming economic giant whose inner core has been corrupted by all manner of evil. From the sadistic mob bosses who ruthlessly control vast criminal empires to the fiendish creatures that haunt its maze of back alleys, Cape Noire is a modern Babylon of sin and depravity. Amidst this den of iniquity strides a macabre warrior committed to avenging the innocent and holding back the tide of villainy. He is Brother Bones, the Undead Avenger and there is no other like him. A one time, heartless killer, he is now the spirit of vengeance trapped in an undying body. He is the unrelenting sword of justice as meted about by his twin .45 automatics. His face, hidden forever behind an ivory white skull mask, is the entrance to madness for those unfortunate enough to behold it. This new collection features five suspenseful, fast-paced, action packed stories featuring pulp fiction's most original hero, Brother Bones. Time to draw the shades, light the candles and enter into a Tapestry of Blood.

    Any additional comments?

    The 'Dragon' has gone but Cape Noire still has need of Brother Jones, the Undead Avenger, as this series of stories reveal. With his bizarre humour and stranger tales, Ron Fortier again throws the reader into the midst of a very colourful procession of characters, from Father O'Malley and alter boy, Billy, and Sally Page the reporter (possibly the sanest of them all), through gang boss, Peter Malone and his murderous brother, Arnold, to cigarette girl, Laura and her card playing boy friend, Bobby, who also just happens to be chauffeur, helper and housemate to Brother Bones himself. A kaleidoscope of colourful characters who are often not quite what they seem. Or else they are ...

    J.Scott Bennett's interpretative performance brings the whole world to life, giving just enough sinister undertone to his reading to embue a tension without distracting from the comedy.

    Good, riotous fun with just the right touch of evil. This is the second Brother Bones book I have heard and, although not quite as enthralling as it's predecessor, it was a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Recommended.
    My thanks to the right's holder for gifting me a copy of Tapestry of Blood.

    "Another great Brother Bones book"

    I never thought I would be a fan of this genre (is it pulp fiction?), and yet I have immensely enjoyed each book I have listened to in the Brother Bones series. It combines gritty crime, a supernatural avenger, interesting characters, and a great story. I listened to the Audible audio version narrated by J. Scott Bennett, and his narration is great. I actively search out books that he narrates, and I have never once been disappointed with his performance. I'm looking forward to any future books in this series. If you like noir, crime fiction, or tales of vengeance, I highly recommend this book.

    "A Collection of Creative Undead Noir Adventures"
    If you could sum up Brother Bones: Tapestry of Blood in three words, what would they be?

    Unique Creative Fantasy


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brother Bones: Tapestry of Blood?

    To me, what's most memorable is Ron Fortier's creation, vigilante Brother Bone, placed into familiar Noir settings. Tapestry of Blood is a collection of work that combines adventure, fantastical characters of the underworld interacting with gangsters, and the every day people of a city filled with corruption and dog eat dog survival. It makes for an entertaining listen!


    Have you listened to any of J. Scott Bennett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes! A half dozen or more of his work. I actually look for audio books he works on. I enjoy his abilities, he is versatile in voice characterizations, with a great sense of pace, and dramatic ability. He has set a standard that listeners can appreciate. This is no exception!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Vigilante, death dealing, Undead... "Cape Noire ain't worth a cup of vampire ...[urine]...", apologies to Clint Eastwood's Preacher in "Pale Rider".


    Any additional comments?

    Brother Bone is Ron Fortier's creation that other writers have branched the story from. The most familiar example for me is the "Thieves' World" collections. Robert Asprin, Lynn Abbey, Janet Morris, et al. I enjoy the idea.

    Thank you for the opportunity to listen to and review "Tapestry of Blood. Highly recommended!

    "Tapestry of Blood; The Best One Yet"

    I love the BROTHER BONES series and I think The Tapestry of Blood is the best one thus far. I didn't want it to end. The undead of Cape Noire are strong, full bodied characters that you can't help but like with the exception of the baddies that dare to enter. My favorite character is Paula and her new persona as well as the teenage girl she saved named Nancy Hanson.

    What I enjoy about the series is that with each installment the main players evolve into more greatness and the introduction of new characters within each story is very clever. For example, I love the Bruiser from Bavaria and The Plastic Army created by Mott Smalley. Pure genius. Ron Fortier is a fantastic author.

    J. Scott Bennett's performance is SO GOOD. He's an excellent voice actor with perfect inflections, tone, and character voices. He adds just the right touch. This pair up of author/reader is by far one of my favorites. Recommended and especially if one dares to enter Cape Noire after dark where dead men don't sleep or dream.

    Audiobook gifted for my honest review.

    "Did not care for 'heroes'"

    Collection of short stories with vampire and dead hit-man as the 'heroes'.

    I did not care for brother bones or the sister blood. Sure he kills bad guys, but he has no emotion, he is just a weapon. Same with the vampire. She kills a group of strange thugs, protecting strangers, but does nothing to protect people living close to her from abuse. They don't think, feel or decide for themselves.

    The narrator was good.
