Publisher's Summary

An explosive, true-life southern gothic story, Murder in the Bayou chronicles the twists and turns of a high-stakes investigation into the murders of eight women in a troubled Louisiana parish.
Between 2005 and 2009, the bodies of eight women were discovered around the murky canals and crawfish ponds of Jennings, Louisiana, a bayou town of 10,000 in the heart of the Jefferson Davis parish. Local law enforcement officials were quick to pursue a serial killer theory, opening a floodgate of media coverage, from CNN to the New York Times. Collectively the victims became known as the "Jeff Davis 8," and their lives, their deaths, and the ongoing investigation reveals a small southern community's most closely guarded secrets.
As Ethan Brown suggests, these homicides were not the work of a single serial killer, but the violent fallout of Jennings' brutal sex and drug trade, a backwoods underworld hidden in plain sight. Mixing muckraking research and immersive journalism over the course of a five-year investigation, Ethan Brown reviewed thousands of pages of previously unseen homicide files to determine what happened during each victim's final hours.
Epic in scope and intensely suspenseful, Murder in the Bayou is the story of an American town buckling under the dark forces of poverty, race, and class division - and a lightning rod for justice for the daughters it lost.

terrible

the way this story is told has some good points but way too many lost moments. I never felt connected to any of the characters too many characters brought in for brief moments I felt lost throughout the whole book and the end was just the end

impressed

I am actually impressed with this book because, as of someone who grew up Jennings like myself and actually knowing 3 of the murdered women and David Deshotel (bow-leg) that was murdered pretty much 2 houses away from where i was living on West Division Street.... and some of the others that was spoken about throughout this book... its nice to know some of the truth behind alot of the murders but i still think there is more... there was so many more things that could've been said and done and i think there is still someone out there that knows something more. but thats all i have to say.

great book and good job narrating
