Murder is never simple.
In a city already simmering with racial conflict, the daring public assassination of its newly elected African American woman mayor lights the fuse.
A killer with no memory of committing the crime brings Raja and Vinny to the Big Easy in the middle of Mardi Gras.
The local mob crime boss, a Russian computer expert, and a pair of backwoods, meth-cooking brothers make far too many suspects. With a Voodoo Queen stirring the pot, murder is never simple. Before they are finished, Raja and Vinny will discover a murderous evil that has lurked in the swamps of Louisiana for centuries.
ABOUT RAJA AND VINNY
Raja Williams is a private detective who is relentless in his pursuit of justice. Neither the dark, tragic anti-hero nor the James Bond super-hero type, Raja uses his intuitive genius and penetrating empathy to unravel mysteries. His sixth sense for evil gives him headaches and steers him straight into trouble. It's a good thing he has very resourceful friends.
Raja's partner, Vinny Moore, is a gorgeous hipster geek who prefers hacking computers to haute couture. Vinny once worked for the U.S. government until she purposely made herself more trouble than they could handle so they would cut her loose. She loves to push Raja's buttons with the hipster lingo she is constantly picking up on the internet. Despite her teasing, Vinny is Raja's best friend.
