This is my first Anna Pigeon book and I know I will have to read more books about her. I love New Orleans, so the setting sucked me in from the beginning. And like the streets in the French Quarter, the plot has hidden surprises, bumps, cracks, and a glimpse of the dirty underbelly of society. I may not recommend this to everyone, simply because the subject matter is too icky for some. But I found I couldn't put it down about half-way through.
