An excellent mix of Pynchon and Hunter S. Thompsonstyle writing style with a great story line.

I put off purchasing this book because I thought it might be a mediocre PI novel. I also don't really care for New Orleans. I was pleasantly surprised. I could not put this down. The main character is very authenttic and downright lovable. The story is witty and never takes itself too seriously. This is the best novel I have read in over a year. I highly recommend it. Awesome read!

Well, thanks to the long winded posters hellbent on spoiling books for others here is yet another book i cant get because u ruined it by revealing every detail of the book. Get a grip and stop ruining it for others. We have the synopsis which tells just enough to peek your interest. We do not need u telling every detail, thereby ruining the book. U have been reported to bn and i hope everyone else who is as sick of u ppl that persist in revealing every plot point will report u too. U must be stopped. Start a blig if u want to dissect every sentence but stop doing it here.

    A Very Dark Story

    I found this book to be weird and depressing. Not much to recommend about it.

    Not sure I'd recommend it

    It was an interesting story. As a retired police officer, some of the heroine's escapades were a little hard to accept (and I realize that law enforcement in New Orleans is, historically, different, and after Katrina, even more so). Upon further reflection, I could have better spent my time.
