Summary

Life’s gone crazy in East Goodland, New York.

When Gus’s country church is hit by a rogue tornado, the bones of a missing parishioner are revealed in a field, shocking the parish and devastating the dead man’s family. Days later, heroin is found in their beloved minister’s bloodstream, throwing the congregation into chaos.

Strange panel vans roar through the countryside at weird hours of the night. The local salt mine collapses due to illegal mining practices. Gas fires burn in water wells. Watering holes turn to brine. Crops are dying. Tempers are short. Forest fires threaten. To top it off, the new mine lies directly over ancient Indian burial grounds, bringing anguish to local tribes and inciting riots at the mine site.

Join Gus as he’s lured into a bizarre network of underground tunnels to expose the most shocking discovery ever to rock the Genesee Valley.

A whirlwind of events, painting nature’s fury

FireSong is told from Music professor Gus LeGarde’s point of view, which allows his warmth and love for his wife, Camille, and for his family to shine as he is protecting them from devastating events. The story opens with church service Sunday morning, when a tornado is expected to hit. From there, suspense builds on with unseemly revelation of the skeleton of a long missing parishioner, then the drugs found in the bloodstream of the well-respected minister. The storm leads us into a whirlwind of events, painting nature’s fury in artistic detail as only nature-loving author Aaron Paul Lazar can muster. “Heavy-headed stalks waved in the breeze, creating great expanses of undulating patterns. A hint of green whispered beneath the golden-pink surf that rippled over the fields.” The audiobook narrator, Pete Milan, has a radiophonic style of delivery, but also offers a variety of voice renditions for each of the characters, making each one a unique one by refining them through their appropriate accents and ages. Five stars. I received this audiobook at my request in exchange for an honest review.

Gus does it all

Fire Song: The Secret Room : Aaron Paul Lazar Gus LeGarde Mysteries, Book 4 Gus is back home where he loves to be. He is faced with mystery, murder, romance, and so much more. The descriptions are detailed. The characters are interesting and there is plenty of action, from a tornado to wildfire, to finding human remains. Gus seems to be the perfect man. He's a husband, father, grandfather, gardener, gourmet chef, musician, and professor. I wonder if there's anything he can't do. I've enjoyed this series, although it appears l've missed a couple of them. I will go back and pick them up. The music was lovely. The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Pete Milan gives a fine performance. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I'm hooked

This book stays true to the excitement and adventure of all the others that I've listened to in this series. I love Mr. Lazar's writing and after I finish this series I plan to listen to and/or read his other books. Right now I am moving on to follow Gus in his next adventure.

A Unique Mystery

This audiobook has many elements of adventure, wrapped up in a fictitious mystery of historical events from the past. The storyline has severe storms, a wildfire, underground railroad stops, hidden rooms, salt mine caverns, and corpse discoveries. The plot has plenty of action and danger, mixed in with domestic family gatherings and meals. Aaron Paul Lazar is a wonderful author! This book is so original! The narrator does a great job, despite his portrayal of the church minister. In the opening chapters of the book, the voice of the minister could easily be found in a Scooby Doo cartoon. The performance turns the minister into an inept officiant, who seems incapable of providing leadership to his flock. I was laughing hysterically! The minister is described later in the audiobook as someone known for good sermons and as a beloved church leader that the congregation would hate to lose, so the performance is definitely not accurate for the character. Also, the narrator's tone seemed to change when speaking about the minister or the church. I got the impression the narrator is not a fan of organized religion and was being disrespectful to the beliefs of others. However, the performance is highly entertaining, so the narrator is forgiven. Of note, this is not a religious work. The church and the minister have a small part in the plot. I would definitely recommend this audiobook to anyone who likes a good mystery, with a lot of adventure included along the way.

Good Story

FireSong. We meet Gus who is a music teacher, a quiet life with family and friends. When a tornado comes thru and uncovers a dead body, a friend of his who had been missing for some time. Leading him through history of Indian grounds, to Underground Railroad, and other adventure. Almost getting him and his grandson killed. Full of action, the plot flows slowly for us to relax as though Gus is telling of of this story. Good narration added to this story, for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
