Book two in the Chanse Macleod detective series and even more exciting and gut wrenching than book 1.

This story sees Chanse trying his best to unravel a murder mystery which has so many twists and turns that it becomes dizzying to read. And at the heart of the mystery lies questions about Paul (Chanse's boyfriend).

All is not as it seems and as he investigates Chanse realises that there is much he doesn't know about Paul, much that was hidden from him. Chanse also realises that he too has hidden
I thoroughly enjoyed Greg Herren's Murder in the Rue St. Ann. It's the third Herren novel I've read (all out of order) and can't believe I've waited so long to read his sharply plotted mystery novels. Chanse McLeod is the perfect private-eye and in this novel reveals more of just "who" Chanse is. I would venture to say this is one of my favorites - if not the favorite - novels I've read by Herren thus far. The mystery is deftly plotted, and the backstory quickly becomes just as important as Chan ...more

Second novel with New Orleans ex-cop turned private detective Chance MacLeod. A more interesting read then the first book "Murder in the rue Dauphine". MacLeod is once again involved in a series of murders where nothing is as it seems and where he risks losing quite a lot. The mood is somewhat dark and sad. We follow Chance pursuing the clues and the hints that come very close to home. Greg Herren doesn't cheat his characters or the plot of this intriguing mystery. I liked it even if I found mys ...more

Another excellent Chanse McCloud Mystery by Greg Herren. An awesome read.
I'd say this book was an improvement on the first. The character of Macleod is a bit more flushed out, which makes this book more interesting. But it wasn't enough to make me continue with the series. Bummer. The New Orleans setting is a nice one though, and one that is well presented.

Nothing like good gay pulp, and that is what Herren has written. Fun characters, the story is tight, don't you wish everyone you knew looked like that. It's on my bookshelf, I doubt I will open it up a second time.
The continuation of this series just shows what a great author Greg Herren is - he keeps his characters fresh and the mysteries page-turners.
Okay. I didn't like how the two separate plot halves never tied together, and I found the ending very upsetting.
A festive gay detective novel. It was light read filled with mystery, intrigue, love story and a shocking ending.
