Danny Chaisson returns after the success of "Cold Steel Rain" in this latest adventure in which the humid air and sleazy dealing of New Orleans languidly comes off the page. Now that Abel has developed some characters which return here the writing is a little more formulaic but if you enjoyed first book you'll probably like this one too.
I bought this book not because it's my genre of choice--it's decidely not--but because the man behind the pseudonym was my professor for one of the most brilliant college English courses I've taken. I have no idea what his crime novels are like, but we'll find out.

I found this book for a dollar, and it's one of my favorite books! I want to read more by this author.
I remember enjoying reading this southern crime/legal novel. Good story.
