So Small a Carnival by John William Corrington, Joyce H. Corrington

Wes Colvin, a New Orleans reporter, receives an anonymous phone call from a man who wants to tell him a story. But when Wes goes to meet his contact at a French Quarter bar, he finds the place a bloody shambles and all its inhabitants machine-gunned to death just moments before. With the help of his friend “Rat” Trapp, NOPD Captain of Homicide, Wes investigates the motive for the slaughter. Among the suspects is an Uptown beauty, Denise Lemoyne, the granddaughter of one of the victims: Auguste Lemoyne, a former Louisianian politician. If he can survive, Wes will uncover the story of a lifetime: the truth behind the assassination of former governor and senator Huey Long.

John William Corrington and Joyce H. Corrington began their careers as academics, he at Louisiana State University and Loyola University New Orleans, she at Xavier University of Louisiana. During this period they began writing scripts for movies (Von Richthofen and Brown, The Omega Man, Boxcar Bertha, The Arena, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, and Killer Bees). Subsequently they worked full-time in television as head writers for daytime dramas and Superior Court. After her husband’s death, Joyce continued writing for television, notably becoming co-executive producer of The Real World.

The Corrington also published a series of mystery novels laid in New Orleans and employing the unique ambiance of that colorful city they know so well: So Small a Carnival, A Project Named Desire, A Civil Death and The White Zone. All feature the same three main characters: Wes Colvin, a newspaper reporter; Ralph “Rat” Trapp, a black NOPD captain of homicide; and Denise Lemoyne, an assistant district attorney. Each of these stories primarily focuses on one character and is narrated from his/her point of view. Recently Joyce Corrington published as an e-book a fifth volume in the series, Fear of Dying. She is currently living in New Orleans and working on a sixth book to be titled You Trust Your Mother.
