Chanse finds himself trapped in a dangerous game of New Orleans high society politics gone deadly wrong, were secrets are kept within the family and taken to the grave. Wendell Sheehan is found dead by his powerful and influential mother, Cordelia and abused wife, Janna, (a woman from a poor family). Chanse is hired to prove that it was someone else responsible for Wendell's death, not Cordelia, because no Sheehan will spend one night in jail. Evidence goes missing from the police station. Ginevra is on her way, too soon after Katrina, and Chanse is driven back to smoking, (disappointing). If it wasn't enough for his life to be threatened by his job and Mother Nature, Vinnie make his return to New Orleans. Without the help of Abby, Chanse would not be able to solve this one on his own. She is a true delight to the novel. Everyone's emotional walls come crumbling down with the devastating approach of Ginevra, and some may never return. (I did miss the love and sex that is normally found in most of the Big Easy novels I've read. But, this book did not need it!) Chanse will have to come to terms with his mother, and hopefully move on into the next romantic relationship chapter of his life.

Upon returning from a trip to visit his ailing mother in Texas, New Orleans gay private investigator Chanse MacLeod is hired by the matriarch of one of that city's socially and politically powerful families to investigate the murder of her son, who was preparing to run for the Senate. Chanse's assignment was to look for the murderer outside of the family, although there was compelling evidence to suggest that the killer was actually the man's wife, who considered him an abusive cheater, or even the matriarch herself, who was proved to have handled and shot the gun used in the slaying. Along the way, Chanse uncovers mysterious fatal "accidents" that seem to haunt the family, a payoff of a local businessman that appears to be blackmail, finds that a man who he helped convict may be trying to kill him, and suspects the disappearance of the man's college-student daughter may hold the key to the mystery. Meanwhile, Chanse, his friend Paige and his assistant, Abby, all survivors of the physical and emotional devastation of Hurricane Katrina years before, keep a wary eye on an approaching storm that threatens to hit New Orleans. Greg Herren is a master storyteller, and the reigning king of gay mystery novels. In this fifth of the "Murder In The..." series featuring Chanse MacLeod, he continues to show his talent for engaging, emotionally-realistic characters and situations, which make his work a significant cut above the average. Absolutely five Cajun-spiced stars out of five! - Bob Lind, Echo Magazine
