It’s personal for criminologist Bobby Delery. Heat and crime rises during the steamy summer in New Orleans, but he’s got a job to do. That can only mean the latest in Michael Allen Zell’s acclaimed Bobby Delery series.
Musician Rodney “Soulman” Mercadel sets up a pyramid scheme with three pastors to sell seats on a non-existent ark for hurricane season. Vonetta (nicknamed Krystal) the sister of Ellis Smith, Bobby Delery’s girlfriend, has gone missing. And New Orleans is a character in its own right. From the 9th Ward to New Orleans East, from the French Quarter to Frenchmen Street, Delery figures out how it all fits together.
