Overview

P.I. Wyatt Thomas is more than a French Quarter sleuth. Much more. Whenever a new client needs someone to investigate ghosts, possession, and the paranormal and supernatural backside of New Orleans, Wyatt is the person they call.

Someone is killing New Orleans street people, and it is affecting trade in the venerable old city trying to recover from Hurricane Katrina. More than murder, voodoo is involved, the killer possibly an actual Vodoun deity.

N.O.P.D. Homicide detective Tony Nicosia seeks the help of Big Easy insider, and often hard-boiled psychic P.I. Wyatt Thomas. Wyatt has a new client interested in ghosts, spirits, possession, and the paranormal. He enlists Mama Mulate, Tulane English professor, psychic explorer, seer, and actual voodoo mambo, to assist him.

Mama Mulate is lethally sensual, Wyatt an alpha male with a dangerous reputation that is deadly sexy. Together, they run the gamut of desire, carnal instincts, passion, darkest fears, and horrifying truths.

Will the moody Louisiana sleuth find love and romance in the arms of his client's beautiful daughter? Will Mama's gris gris protect Wyatt from a horrible death? Can they unravel the strangest psychic mystery suspense thriller to hit New Orleans since the era of voodoo queen Marie Laveau?

Big Easy is a must read page turner. In one reader's words, "If you like New Orleans and Louisiana, Eric Wilder will take you there."

Although I don't normally read police/murder mysteries, I thoroughly enjoyed Big Easy. The book takes place in post-Katrina New Orleans, such a unique city, and someone is murdering street people in the French Quarter. Detective Tony Nicosia is assigned to solve these homicides. The killer has left grisly clues that indicate these deaths have a connection with voodoo, and all are strangely connected to a nearby mission. Unschooled in voodoo, Nicosia enlists the help of Wyatt Thomas and Mama Mulate, a powerful voodoo mambo, to help stop this deranged killer or killers. The story progresses through several unexpected twists and turns, especially towards the end of the book. Eric Wilder writes in a concise, easy-to-read manner that gives the reader just enough details to make the story enjoyable. I liked the way he wove the story around real restaurants/bars in the French Quarter and nearby areas. He apparently is very familiar with New Orleans and its culture, and did quite a bit of research on voodoo. I liked everything about the book, including the cover depicting the tomb of Marie Laveau, the most famous voodoo queen. Having everything that could translate into a good movie, I could easily see this book being adapted to a film version.

Book exchanged for an honest review~ New Orleans is famous for it's food, music, and voodoo. This triple threat combination is the setting for Big Easy. When two women are murdered through what appears to be ritual stumping the detectives working the case. Wyatt Thomas knows that The Big Easy is anything but that. When he's asked to help the investigation run by Tony Nicosia and Tommy Blackburn. The detectives are against the wall with no suspects to be had. Can they detectives solve the case? Can Wyatt help? Your answers await you in Big Easy. I really enjoyed this book. I learned alot of new information. Makes me wish I could visit New Orleans for myself. The story was compelling, intriguing, raw, and mysterious. The characters were honest, intriguing, and down to earth. I look forward to my next adventure in this series.

Wow! amazing book! Eric Wilder is a a amazing writer. I Loved Primal Creatures and when Eric asked if I wanted to review this one too I was so excited! I can't get enough of Wyatt Thomas! he is great at what he does and there is no one he doesn't know! and I have a big old soft spot for Inspector Tony he is just a big ol' sweetie....lol This book The first of the Wyatt Thomas novels centers around Murder, Voodoo and family intrigue and Lost Heritage. It all comes together in a chilling tale of torture as a serial killer threatens the Big Easy. Wyatt and Tony enlist the help of the local Voodoo Mambo Mama Mulate in order to help solve the case. Meanwhile Wyatt is trying to help Celeste and her Father Maurice find his family. All he remembers from his life in new Orleans as a boy is his mothers funeral, a strange service and tomb in an old graveyard, a tomb with no name just x's written on the tomb. Wyatt is sure he knows what tomb it is but is it worth there lives to find out? I couldn't get enough of this book I loved it from beginning to end! if you like murder mystery's then you will definitely like this! I don't read a lot of mystery books but I love these ones!
