Scotty's three-way relationship with Colin and Frank seems really weird to me, but makes for great fantasy! It's Mardi Gras, and Scotty wants to show them a great time. That all comes to a screeching halt when the police meet him at his front door, again. His drug dealer is murdered and Scotty was the last one to see him alive. A big shock comes their way when they find out that he was married to their Aunt Sylvia?! Scotty meets the Goddess, and is told that both Frank and Colin are in danger. The trio decide to leave the investigation to the police. But, that comes to a halt when Scotty, dressed as a golden Mercury, chases Misha through the crowded Mardi Gras streets, to his parents house, for a BIG shock! Events are unraveling as family secrets are coming to the surface, and Frank has disappeared. The Goddess visits Scotty once again to remind him to have a brave heart and there is nothing that he can't handle that the Universe puts in front of him.

This is the third of his books featuring Private Detective Scotty Bradley, former go-go dancer, and new age psychic. If you've read the other books (Jackson Square Jazz, and Bourbon Street Blues) and you liked them, then you'll probably like this one too. If not, you won't. It was a diverting afternoon read, but there's nothing artistic, interesting, or all that mysterious here, unless you think that page-long descriptions of a guy's pecs furthers a mystery plot. The plot involves the death of a Russian drug dealer who (surprise!) has a twin who is still alive and (surprise!) happens to be Scotty's uncle. Once the investigation proceeds and Scotty's friends are kidnapped, we find out that the twins are actually (surprise!) triplets. Then there's a big twist at the end, which is so foreshadowed early in the book that it hardly qualifies as a twist -- more of a slight bend. The preponderance of 'psychic episodes' which help Scotty solve the mystery is annoying. Most good detectives rarely have to rely on tarot cards -- it isn't just a schtick, it's seems like a lazy way of writing a mystery. When insight is dropped at your feet by 'The Goddess' what exactly is the point of being a detective?

In New Orleans, former b-dancer turned private investigator Scotty Bradley returns home at daybreak after a wild night of advance celebrating of Mardi Gras. However, instead of hitting the sack to prepare for Carnival fun with his two boyfriends Frank Sobieski and Colin Cioni, two detectives interrogate Scotty re his being seen in the French Quarter with Russian émigré Misha Saltikov, the source of the sleuth¿s illegal drug usage. Not long after they were seen talking, someone killed Misha. --- Though he prefers to stay out of the police investigation, Scotty begins making his own inquiries using underground links that would never talk to a cop. To his shock, Scotty finds his own zany relatives are somehow involved as well some odd Russians who might be Mafioso. At the same time he conducts his investigation, his affairs with Frank and Colin abruptly collapses when the former is abducted and the latter vanishes without a trace leaving Scotty with a second and perhaps third personal case to deal with that is if nothing ties together and so far nothing has. --- In his third appearance (see BOURBON STREET BLUES and JACKSON SQUARE JAZZ), Scotty is at his beleaguered best coping poorly with cops suspecting him in a drug deal turned bad and even worse with his lovers gone. The investigation is terrific as the hero pays homage to the city he cherishes while trying to prove his innocence, save his lovers, and celebrate Fat Tuesday. MARDI GRAS MUMBO is a fabulous gay Noir. --- Harriet Klausner
