Finding local pressures rising when a crime wave peaks with the murder of a prominent restauranteur, New Orleans Homicide Detective Skip Langdon begins a detailed search for the killer, as well as for the victim's missing heirs. Tour.

Blackwell North Amer
Crime is Topic A across America. Even New Orleans, the most gracious American city, has hundreds of homicides each year, and sufficient random violence to keep the city's police force working overtime. So what's one more fatal shooting? When the victim is prominent restaurateur Arthur Hebert, whose distinguished restaurant of the same name attracts both knowledgeable visitors and natives, it's what the cops call a heater case, and the heat is on Homicide Detective Skip Langdon.
Skip's hunt for a murderer and the missing Hebert heirs embraces worlds within worlds - the elegant, dangerous Garden District, the French Quarter, the seedy Treme, broken-down projects, exclusive mansions, and lowdown bars. It takes her into places where the city's dirty business is transacted, and those where life is mostly madness, sadness, and badness. It may even take her to her death....
