The atmosphere of New Orleans and the surrounding area are intriguing with many hidden delights of culture seeping into the stories by Donaldson. I have enjoyed others in the series a great deal more than this one. There was too much emphasis on the personal relationship of Franklyn which detracted from the mystery and the scientific interest for me.

NO MARDI GRAS FOR THE DEAD - Okay
Donaldson, D.J. - standalone

When a twenty-year-old corpse is discovered in her backyard, criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn attempts to learn how it could be linked to two subsequent violent murders and uncovers a secret in New Orlean's French Quarter.

It was okay but too light and very inconsistent.

Not as good as the last one, but this series is pretty fun, so I'm sticking with it for a while!

Don't let the obvious title fool you, this is a wonderful treat for someone to get to read scenery and characters that are very Louisianian. Great Pulp with an "X-Files" bent.
