Up to 100 pages of an insight to the disastrous effects of hurricane Katrina, on the city of New Orleans, it's people, the problems they face of going home or having no home to go back to, and the outrageous lack of support from our government to help it's own, that no one can truly understand, unless they witnessed it in person, not on TV. Chanse is deputized by the police department to investigate a burglary, and uncovers some deep, dark, horrible secrets of a very proud, prominent and powerful family from the Garden District, and also the truth behind one of New Orleans' hate crime 30 years after it was swept under the rug. I really liked this book, and am looking forward to the next MacLeod book G. Herren has coming out!

Private Investigator Chanse MacLeod has finally gone home to his beloved New Orleans, but though he has seen the news clips as the mass destruction of Katrina, he is still stunned with what happened to the city. Not long after returning he learns that his last client Iris Verlaine before the Hurricane was murdered on the same night she had hired him.--------- Chanse feels obligated to accomplish Iris¿ assignment to find her long time missing father. He also feels obsessed to find out who killed Iris. However, not only is the city different his late client¿s family oozes charm that makes the detective feel welcome and therefore wary.-------------- Chanse is terrific as he sees the horror of Katrina in many ways while traveling the city. Little thinks like street signs and known landmarks are gone. The two mysteries are cleverly designed to bring out post Katrina New Orleans in a way few tales have been bale to do. To fully comprehend Chanse¿s shock compare MURDER IN THE RUE CHARTRES to his previous Big Easy cases (see MURDER IN THE RUE DAUPHINE and MURDER IN THE RUE ST. ANN).-------------- Harriet Klausner
