Kit has been receiving yellow roses from a stranger for a couple days. She is on the way to meet this stranger at Grandma O’s restaurant. While there, an older gentleman says her name then collapses. His is pronounced dead and sent to the morgue. Kit is very curious at who he is since he knew her name and had a picture of both of her parents.
Broussard is the one working the autopsy of the guy when his assistant cuts herself. It doesn’t seem like a big deal until he starts looking at the body and finds strange lesions on the organs. When another guy is found with the same lesions and his assistant falls ill, Broussard knows he is in deep trouble. But when Kit goes missing, things get ramped up. Now Broussard is in a race to find the cause of the bleeding dead and find Kit before she falls victim to that or kidnappers.
I admit that this is the first book of DJ Donaldson that I have read. All I can say is WOW! I instantly got sucked into the story, I was on pins and needles waiting to find out the cause, and I was wracked with nerves waiting for them to find Kit and Teddy.
The only thing that I was disappointed in was the ending. Don’t get me wrong, I loved how the mystery was wrapped up. I was just disappointed in Kit. I understand that she has been through this whole kidnapping ordeal and everything is off kilter. I was upset with how she treats her parents and Teddy.
Having said that, this was a great book. If you like mysteries, this is one book that you don’t want to miss. Now I’m going to go and get the rest of this series so I can find out how this started.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

This is a fantastic book for anyone who loves to watch CSI, Law & Order, Discovery Health. I'm a medical forensics nut, but not only does this book provide some great medical mysteries, it also has well developed characters and the author describes scenery so that you can visualize what you are reading very well. It's hard to put this book down!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Kit Franklin receives an invitation to meet a mysterious admirer at Grandma O's Restaurant. She is curious because the unknown suitor has been sending roses to her for three straight days. When Kit arrives at the restaurant, she is greeted by a sixtyish stranger who speaks her name and then promptly collapses. The man later dies in a hospital of unknown causes.Then Kit disappears and the authorities suspect she is a kidnap victim. On one level this book is about greed and the harm caused by families trying too hard to bury secrets from the past. There are just enough strands to the story to make it interesting but not too confusing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I have read Louisiana Fever and Sleeping with the Crawfish and they were both very good books. They were informative and well written. Once I started the books I was unable to put the them down until I had finished them. I hope Mr. Donaldson will continue writing about the characters of Andy Broussard and Kit Franklyn as they are a good team. I recommend these books to anyone who enjoys mysteries and stories that take place in New Orleans.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
