Publisher Comments:

Murder hits the Big Easy.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Chanse MacLeod returns to a different, shattered New Orleans in an attempt to rebuild his own life and face his own future. When he discovers that his last client before the storm was murdered the very night she hired him to find her long-missing father, he is drawn into a web of intrigue and evil that surrounds the Verlaine family.

Greg Herren is the author of six mysteries set in the city of New Orleans, including Murder in the Rue Dauphine and Murder in the Rue St. Ann, and he co-edited Love, Bourbon Street.

Review:

"Post-Katrina New Orleans provides the engrossing backdrop for Herron's third Chanse MacLeod whodunit (after 2004's Murder in the Rue St. Anne). The gay investigator returns to the battered city, determined to stay despite the devastation. Before the hurricane, Iris Verlaine, granddaughter of a local shipping magnate, hired Chanse to find her father, Michael Mercereau, missing for 32 years. But before Chanse could dig into the case, Iris fired him. Shocked to learn that Iris was shot and killed shortly before Katrina, Chanse agrees to help his friends, NOPD detectives Venus Casanova and Blaine Tujague, solve the murder. Joshua Verlaine, Iris's big brother, also hires Chanse to continue the search for Mercereau, though his grandfather disapproves. Uncovering a disturbing link between Mercereau and a tragic cold case from 1973, Chanse realizes he's stumbled onto something huge. Herron, a loyal New Orleans resident, paints a brilliant portrait of the recovering city, including insights into its tight-knit gay community. This latest installment in a powerful series is sure to delight old fans and attract new ones." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

This book is soul-searing on at least two levels. The first is the impact of Katrina on the residents of New Orleans, which Herren describes to great effect. The other element is the historical fire which is integral to the plot, which is horrifying on so many levels. The is the first of his books that I considered truly great.
