Overview

In Knight's Big Easy: Voodoo, hoodoo and a girl named Poodoo make this year's Mardi Gras the most fun but also the most dangerous party of all for E Z Knight.

Knight goes to New Orleans to find Parole Officer Tamara White Cloud's AWOL USMC son, and finds out L/Cpl Billy White Cloud isn't the only one who's gone missing.

He uncovers the largest human trafficking organization since the US slave emancipation. Led by a Voodoo King named Papa Legba, the slave ring preys not only on young runaways and homeless children, but also kidnaps them from their own homes, and then sells them into prostitution and sweat-shop labor.

Knight works with a retired jazz musician named Black Zack who restores old horns in a shop called Jazzy Brass. They team up with FBI Special Agent Pooh Dooley to find Billy and to stop the slave-traders. However, Knight's old musician sidekick might be more than he appears. Black Zack claims the hay in the back of his truck is for feeding his cousin's goats. But when the pickup the old horn tooter's driving is run off the road and catches fire, smoke from the alfalfa bales in the back gives Knight a high unlike any he's had before.

Time is running out. A cargo ship loaded with over 500 children is away to the deepest waters in the Gulf. With the threat of being exposed, Papa Legba has ordered the ship sunk as soon as it reaches Sigsbee Deep. But Knight's not that worried about dealing with the two-dozen armed men on the slave ship, or the nighttime HALO jump he must make to carry out the rescue-it's the Voodoo Queen named Marie who won't rest until she's turned E Z Knight into a zombie that's making his skin crawl.

***

Knight's Big Easy is the first book of the "The E Z Knight Reports"; a BookShot length, sexy, humorous and irreverent series as well as a somewhat realistic and poignant look at the darker side of life, crime and the human condition. With a modern-day, ramped up "The Rockford Files"/"Magnum PI" feel, a Jack Bauer-capable hero and a "24" pace, this series consists of page-thrumming, novels.

For more fun, look for Knight's Late Train and Knight's Ransom, the second and third fast-paced novels of the series.

Meet the Author

Gordon Kessler is a thriller novelist, living in the Kansas City metro area with his golden retriever, Jazmin (Jazzy Brass). He's taught novel writing for several community colleges, worked over twenty years for the BNSF Railway, and is a former US Marine Recon Scout, Super Squad team leader, parachutist and troop handler. He enjoys SCUBA, sailing, snow skiing and sharing time with his kids and grandkids.

His thriller novels Jezebel, Dead Reckoning, and Brainstorm are all in both paper and eBook. His latest men's action/adventure thrillers, Knight's Ransom and Knight's Late Train, were released in 2012. Four or five more in "The E Z Knight Reports" series are scheduled for release in the coming months. These novels are about half the size of his big thrillers and are fast, fun reads.

Gordon's also published two short story eBooks: a humorous piece called "Toothpick for Two" and a nostalgic romance called "Jack Baron". Please check them out.

Along with his fiction, he's published a book for writers, Novel Writing Made Simple; a great primer for beginners and an excellent refresher for the experienced wordsmith. He's a founder and currently president of the Kansas Writers Association, a sixteen-year-old organization of some very special people. Last year, he started a group to help support independent authors called the Indie Writers Alliance--another group of great people.

A second book on writing, EBook Writing Made Simple, focuses on the actual writing of eBook novels and how they can be crafted more effectively for the eBook novel reader rather than as a work written for the traditional publishing industry.

Draws you in from page one. Gordon A. Kessler does an amazing job at drawing you into the book by using colorful characters, regional dialect, and lots of action. I can't wait to read more of this series.
