Enjoyable New Orleans Mystery
This is book #2 in Andy Broussard and Kit Franklyn Mysteries, but it can be read or listened to as a stand-alone. This story is interesting and charming, because in the 1990s, our characters must manage without mobile phones, clunky computers, printers probably dot matrix, police use (what seems like) white cloth gloves, and blood work take days to complete as do forensics tests.
The well-plotted story has Louisiana traditions and peculiarities, which I enjoy reading about. The author’s descriptions of the oppressive heat and humidity, dark rainy days, the less-populated countryside, and the danger posed by alligators adds reality to the New Orleans and bayou settings.
More, an interesting romance begins to blossom in this book, and a whiff of the fantastic and/or supernatural is revealed later in this book, which IMO is a good thing.
I loved the Audible version’s narrator—Brian Troxell—who is excellent with the various accents of Louisiana.
