This is a fun series, even if I think our handsome hero Scotty is kind of a Mary Sue. I think it took Herren a few books to come into his own as a writer (this is the fourth of his books that I've read). Still, there's the pratfall a lot of amateur detective series fall into; what are the odds, really, that one character would encounter so many dead bodies? (Herren has written two series. One features an ex-cop private eye, and I can buy that he'd run into trouble periodically because he does a...more
This is the follow up novel to Bourbon Street Blues, we find Scotty living next to a friend in a borrowed apartment, trying to deal with the "idea" of having a stable boyfriend, even if he is in Washington D.C. and the fact he can't imagine being ever with only one person. We have this little intrigue centered around a lost artistic treasure taken or so it seems from a local museum, we have Colin making a comeback into Scotty's life, a wonderful car chase that gives you goose bumps (that's rare...more
Amateur sleuth Scotty Bradley returns for another murder mystery in Jackson Square Jazz, Greg Herren’s follow-up to Bourbon Street Blues, the first in the Scotty Bradley series. This time around, Scotty is having reservations about his relationship with Frank the FBI agent who we met in Book 1, and he gets tangled up with Bryce, a young figure skater whose family origins are at the heart of the mystery.

Good gay mystery (with a titch of the paranormal) in which Scotty, now training to be a private investigator, manages to get involved in a case involving figuring skating, an historic fire, and a missing Napoleonic mask.

Very enjoyable reading. Light gay murder mystery set in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Having lived there for many years I enjoy that the author had used the French Quarter in a very authentic way, that the street names and locations all were correct and many of the bars and restaurants were places I used to haunt then I lived there. Great adventure into New Orleans, and New Orleans current events. RECOMMENDED READING
Dec 16, 2007 Christie rated it 4 of 5 stars Recommends it for: mystery fans
The second in a series about a former male go-go dancer turned P.I. set in N'awlins. This are a fun, quick read, so don't let the fact that they will usually be found in the gay section keep from enjoying a good solid read by a N.O. native and writer. Also has another series, with one book set before and one set after Katrina(start with Murder on the Rue St. Ann.)
another fun gay mystery. Fun charecters and set in a fun city,new orleans.This is a Scotty Bradley mystery. It is the first of the Scotty Series. I enjoy these books but dont consider them to be great literature but I dont want to negate them to just gay lit as think that they are a little more universal than that.
