This was a great book. It held my interest and had me guessing right till the end. Will definitely more books from this author.

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.
