Description: The third title in a series of Val Bosanquet mystery thrillers, A. J. Davidson’s Moon on the Bayou combines murder mystery, body snatching and intrigue into a fast paced and entertainingly complex thriller. East Feliciana Deputy Sheriff Val Bosanquet’s day starts badly when a murder victim’s body is snatched from his crime scene. The discovery of a second victim makes his day worse. Although the murders do not appear to be connected, Val suspects that Mungo Call, the charismatic leader of Rising Sun, a pressure group fighting miscarriages of justice, holds the key. Val is aided by his friend Dave McElligott, a former member of the Marine Corps Special Operations Command. Together they plumb the unfathomable evil and extreme cruelty of a Mexican drug cartel.

I gave up after reading a third of this 'page-turner'. Off to do something much more interesting such as cutting my toenails. A marketing triumph, a literary bore.

Not one of his best. Tries to fit in as much modern e-society as possible. I read another book with the exact same plot and will now spend the next month trying to find it. I know It will drive me mad until I do.

“order a bottle of wine, drink a toast to his wife’s pregnancy, and forget all about Jackson for a few hours. Instead, he paid his bill and headed out. The warrant for Logjam was a month old and no dealer could stay out of sight much longer than that before his customers migrated to a new supplier. Logjam would have resurfaced by now. The first place he visited was a washout. So was the second. He moved on to a zydeco joint. It stank of flat beer and stale smoke. The customers paid him little heed as he nursed a Canadian Club and ginger at the bar. He hadn’t long to wait until he spotted who held the concession. The bartender handed three customers a complimentary book of matches each as he set down their drinks. Two of them already had cigarettes lit, their lighters squared neatly on top of their cigarette packets. Val called him over. “I’m looking for a friend of mine.” The man eyeballed him. “A guy like you has no friends.” “His name’s Logjam. Have you seen him recently?” The bartender wiped the zinc counter with a sponge cloth. “Never heard of him. Does he come in here?” Val set his shield on the bar. “Have you”
