Jack is a detective in New Orleans living with the history of his brother's murder and a recent shooting gives him the opportunity to solve both crimes and thus put things to rest after more than 30 years.

This is an interesting police procedural set in New Orleans. The story was steeped in the history of the civil rights movement. This was a great debut with the potential of being a great series. Sadly, the author died before the publication of the book.

Pretty good book. Lots of twists and turns combining a personal cold case with a new case involving the same people. Set in New Orleans.
