The Voodoo Murders

(A book in the Ed Noon series)
A novel by


"The hand was quicker than the private eye. Steel gleamed in his fingers magically and a lightning bolt left his brown hands. It flashed across twenty feet and pinned my sleeve to the wall, knocking the gun out of my hand."
--Ed Noon, Private Eye

<>A voodoo cult masterminded by the fantastic Count Calypso is trying to take over the world and Ed Noon is the only private eye between Manhattan and Port-au-Prince who can stop him.<>

Ed Noon's Calypso caper: a voodoo cult masterminded by the fantastic Count Calypso trying to take over the world, and Noon is catapulted into the weirdest case of his career. The savage deep-freeze murder of a close friend turns the case personal, and makes it a duel to the death with the Count. This one starts with a threat in Manhattan and ends with human sacrifice in Port-au-Prince. This story also features the first appearance of would-be actress Peg Temple.


The Adventures of Ed Noon, Private Eye, span over 30 novels written between 1953 and 1990. Noon starts out dirt poor with a tiny office in Midtown Manhattan (his "Mouse Auditorium") but success moves him to better digs, a lovely secretary (Melissa Mercer) and, eventually, the most important client of all: the President of the United States. The series concludes with a daring turn toward science fiction in the last two novels. Through it all, the wisecracking Noon is consistent: a movie and baseball-obsessed romantic who always fights the good fight. And, more often than not, wins.
