In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, anarchy and chaos rule. Dozens of foul-play situations are reported as corpses are discovered in empty houses and buildings. Scores are being settled. A former assistant district attorney, Henry Xavier O’Grady, known to his friends as Irish Henry, is in the midst of it.
Henry encounters Martin “the Kid” Montague, a writer and a witness to the JFK assassination. The Kid has feared for his life since that event. Henry and the Kid each have their own enemies, a direct result of how well they do their jobs. Some of these enemies are the same, namely the local mob, but others are jealous co-workers. The pair’s troubled histories catch up with them in the Big Easy and lead to a denouement that offers insight to the tragic event in Dallas.
With touches of international intrigue and romance, this mystery novel offers an alternative theory to the lingering question of the JFK assassination.
